Best Prime Day 2020 Nintendo Switch deals
The Switch has been around since 2017 now and Nintendo’s latest flagship console has seen massive success, with consoles experiencing sell-outs across the UK earlier in the year. Nintendo is known for its phenomenal and unique franchises, from The Legend of Zelda, Animal Crossing and Super Mario, all of which are exclusive to its consoles. The Nintendo Switch is the most unique console on the market, offering a mix of portable and TV experiences, a true innovation.
The Nintendo Switch will usually set you back around £279, making it somewhat of an investment (though still more affordable than the new Xbox Series X and PS5). That said, Nintendo isn’t scheduled to release a new console this year. This means that, while the Switch will likely remain cheaper than the next-gen consoles, it could be undercut by Sony and Microsoft’s older offerings as Amazon tries to shift stock.

Best Prime Day 2020 Nintendo Switch Lite deals
Nintendo released the Switch Lite last September, meaning the console hasn’t even seen a Prime Day yet. The Lite is the smaller, more colourful (and more affordable) counterpart to the Nintendo Switch, running many of the same games in handheld mode only.
The Switch Lite saw a £20 reduction across a few sites on Black Friday, taking it from its usual £199 price down to £179. The yellow model is currently discounted to £198 (tempting, we know) but we hope to see some juicier price cuts closer to the date. Keep checking back as we update this page with all the best Nintendo Switch Lite deals in the lead up to Prime Day 2020.
