The end of the year is definitely the time when the biggest video game companies offer their best and original gift ideas. This is the case for Microsoft with its discounts on the Xbox Game pass subscription and also for Sony with bundles and gift cards. Now it’s Nintendo’s turn to come up with some holiday gift ideas. Besides Christmas, the special Black Friday offers will start very soon, for this year 2022.
Nintendo gift ideas for Black Friday 2022
Since Black Friday officially begins on November 17, the My Nintendo store and most of its partner stores are offering a bundle and gift box from November 20, including:
- A standard Joy-Con controller for Nintendo Switch (Red and blue);
- A Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game (downloadable from Nintendo eShop);
- A 3-month subscription to NSO (Nintendo Switch Online).
This bundle or gift box is thus offered in the My Nintendo store at a very affordable price. A gift idea not to be missed for this end of the year.
This bundle of deals made by Nintendo is just a tiny sliver of Black Friday deals to please and allow those interested to soak up the party vibe. Indeed, whether online or in physical stores, there are several offers accompanied by reductions of more than 10% for each video game for Nintendo Switch.. The selection of the following video games is thus sold with an attractive reduction on the price of each:
- Mario Party Superstars;
- Animal Crossing: New Horizons;
- The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening;
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild;
- Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes;
- Bravely Default II.
Most Nintendo-affiliated stores offer bundled video games for less around Black Friday. In addition, during this period, there will be a significant reduction in the price of video games like WarioWare: Get It Together! or even a price reduction on Big Brain Academy: Brain vs Brain.
Gifting NSO Subscriptions (Nintendo Switch Online)
As Nintendo gift ideas for the year 2022, you can also opt for Nintendo Switch Online subscriptions with Additional Set, especially for the family. Being similar to a standard Nintendo Switch Online membership, with the Additional Bundle offer, the subscriber will be able to have access to online games as well as retro NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) and Super NES games.
Note that you can also access classic video games from the old SEGA Genesis and Nintendo 64 consoles as well as downloadable games like Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion and the real-time Nintendo Switch game Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Lego Harry Potter: Years 1 to 4 without adding additional costs.
The Nintendo Switch console: a gift idea to please your family
Apart from the gift ideas during Black Friday, for the holiday season and Christmas 2022, the stores will be invaded by a large number of offers made by Nintendo. One example is the Nintendo Switch OLED console, which is quite similar to the standard version, except that the latter has a 7-inch OLED-type screen that can adapt perfectly to tabletop mode.
Indeed, the Nintendo Switch OLED version console has a total storage of 64 GB, a 7-inch screen and an integrated Ethernet port. A pretty impressive improvement over the standard console with blue and red Joy-Con.
As a Christmas present, the Nintendo Switch OLED version console is perfect for family video games. Specifically, the console is equipped with 2 Joy-Cons that allow you to play Nintendo video games in multiplayer and online. Note that you can even take your Nintendo Switch OLED in your luggage when you go on a trip during the holiday season and Christmas.
As a gift idea, especially if you plan to go on a trip, opt for the Nintendo Switch Lite version console. This Nintendo console is both light and compact, even if the controllers are not detachable.
With a Nintendo Switch console, you can play the latest video games like Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, Splatoon third name, Nintendo Switch Sports and Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope or the game Harry Potter Hogwarts Legacy: Hogwarts Legacy . These games will be available on eShop and at Nintendo-affiliated stores starting November 18.
During holiday periods (Christmas and/or end of year), recent Nintendo video games are offered at half price. Wouldn’t that be the best gift idea, especially since Bayonetta’s third opus has just been released?
To find other Nintendo gift ideas, you can always visit the official stores of the franchise or directly go to their official website especially for the Holidays. You will find gifts (Nintendo consoles, video games, etc.) that will be adapted to your budget, knowing that there may be a reduction in the price of the products.
