Since the console’s release in 2017, the Nintendo Switch has been a huge hit. Unfortunately, the system’s popularity has resulted in similar success for its first-party games, giving Nintendo little incentive to lower the price. While we’ve seen discounts over the years, GameStop’s Black Friday sale includes the biggest price cuts we’ve ever seen for a handful of popular Switch games. A total of eight games have been discounted to $26.99, and that price is available for both physical and digital versions of those games. The full list includes:

As of this writing, most of these games appear to be in stock both physically and digitally, and readers can check out the sales page on GameStop’s website here. Buyers can actually save a bit more money by buying used copies of these titles, which are listed at $24.99. The only exception is Astral Chain. This game isn’t physically in stock at all, so Switch fans will have to go the digital route if they want to take advantage of the current discount. Those who prefer physical copies to digital will want to keep that in mind, and it’s possible more games will follow as more Switch owners take advantage of them.

Some of these discounts come at a very good time! The direct consequences of Splaton 2 and breath of the wild are slated for release in 2022, so players who haven’t had a chance to check out their predecessors can now do so for less. Kirby is also expected to appear in a new game next year, Kirby and the Forgotten Land. This game actually looks very different from Star Alliesfeaturing a 3D adventure, as opposed to traditional 2D character games.
