Super Mario Party

Nintendo is hosting one of the biggest sales yet on Switch games, knocking 30 percent off the regular $60 price of titles that rarely see much of a discount, like New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Mario Tennis Aces, Super Mario Party, and Dragon Quest XI S. Several others, including some highly acclaimed indie and third-party games, are even more affordable.

What’s great about this sale is you’ll get the digital versions of the game, so there’s no waiting for a delivery in the mail or worrying about juggling cartridges. No matter which retailer you buy from, when you receive the code in the email, you can redeem it on your Switch. If you happen to buy your game directly through Nintendo’s online eShop, it will begin downloading immediately on your console. Just make sure that you have enough microSD storage. You can currently find a 256GB micro SD card for $40, whereas a 400GB model is $63.
