Featured Deal: Paper Mario: The Origami King | $43 | Amazon
These are the best Nintendo Switch deals for June 2021.
Even with summer arriving and the pandemic easing up in some places, it’s still prime time to find a comfy spot inside and lose yourself in a great game. Luckily, you can find some killer deals on Switch games right now, including a mix of recent and older releases, along with stellar accessory bargains below.
XCOM 2 Collection | $15
If you’re looking for a long-lasting bargain, you can’t do much better than the XCOM 2 Collection for Switch. Priced at a mere $15 right now, this set includes the core sci-fi tactical strategy game along with the War of the Chosen expansion and other post-release add-on content. You could potentially pour hundreds of hours into this game if you wanted, and XCOM 2 is a beloved critical smash—so you might want to! This game requires a download of at least 24GB, so you will probably need a microSD card to ensure that you have enough storage.
If you’re not one of the millions of Animal Crossing devotees that snapped up this perfect-for-pandemic chillfest last year, now’s your chance. Right now, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is $10 off, which is the best we’ve seen on a new copy since release. It’s been more than a year since it launched and the game is still going strong with fresh updates and a rabid community around it. Join the fun!
Ring Fit Adventure | $70
Nintendo’s Ring Fit Adventure was damn near impossible to find during the early months of the pandemic, but now Amazon has it in stock for $10 off. Ring Fit Adventure is a fitness-centric role-playing adventure that finds you slotting one Joy-Con controller into the included ring peripheral and attaching the other to your leg, using motion controls to challenge you while providing a surprisingly serious workout.
Looking for a whimsical role-playing adventure? Last year’s Paper Mario: The Origami King introduces a unique threat to the flat world of this spinoff franchise, as Mario battles to stop everyone and everything from being transformed into origami. It’s a bit action, a bit puzzle, and a bit RPG, but all pretty delightful and hilarious to boot. Save nearly $17 at Amazon.
PGA Tour 2K21 | $20
Sure, Mario Golf: Super Rush is on the horizon—but if you’re more into the real-deal stuff, PGA Tour 2K21 is a pretty stellar simulation. The Switch version isn’t as pretty as the others, but the golfing fundamentals are strong and it’s loaded with officially-licensed courses and pro golfers. Best of all, it’s marked down massively from the $60 list price.
Just Dance 2021 | $30

The seemingly unending battle between veggies and the undead continues on in Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. This is essentially Garden Warfare 3, with the original tower defense smash transformed into a cartoonish third-person shooter with lively characters and entertaining online modes. This Complete Edition for Switch arrived after the other platforms, so it comes with a bunch of bonus content bundled in, and right now it’s just $25 at Amazon.
Just released on Switch in February, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury pairs the excellent multiplayer platformer from the Wii U with a brand new side game called Bowser’s Fury. It’s a mini-campaign with a neat new open-world approach, and both pieces make this another fantastic Mario experience on Switch. Save $10 at Amazon right now.
Yes, the Switch’s little Joy-Con controllers detach from the system and snap into the little controller shell that comes in the box—but if you’re planning on playing a lot of Switch games on your TV, especially more complex, skill-based games, then you’ll want a hardier controller with full-sized analog sticks and more responsive-feeling buttons. The official Switch Pro Controller is great but pricey, but at least you can save $11 off the list price at Amazon right now!
Want an epic role-playing game to sink your teeth into? Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition refreshes the stellar original Wii odyssey with crisper graphics and a brand new epilogue, delivering the sci-fi quest for a new generation of players. It’s nearly $18 off the list price right now from Amazon.
Immortals Fenyx Rising | $30
Just released in December, Ubisoft’s Immortals Fenyx Rising is an open-world adventure inspired by Greek mythology as much as it is Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It hails from the developers of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, but is tighter in focus, cartoonish in style, and pretty funny to boot. It’s $20 off at Amazon.
