In a more just world, the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics would have taken place last summer. Instead, we still have COVID-19 and misery… and rumors that the delayed Olympics will ultimately be canceled. Well, at least there’s video games.
The official video game adaptation—released in late 2019—stars rivals Mario and Sonic and their respective crews as they battle for international supremacy across archery, boxing, soccer, and more. Plus, along with the modern 3D events, there are also retro throwback versions with pixel graphics that hit like a beautiful nostalgia bomb. It’s $25 off at Amazon.
Mortal Kombat 11 | $23
“Get over here!” Actually, you know what? Stay where you are: with the Switch, you can play Mortal Kombat 11 wherever you please. That’s your decision. The Switch rendition is just as feature-rich and entertaining as those on more powerful platforms, and right now this 2019 fighter is down significantly from its original $60 launch price.
FIFA 21 Legacy Edition | $28
What does Legacy Edition mean? Well, it means that the Switch version of FIFA 21 hasn’t really seen any notable gameplay enhancements, nor does it pack in the extensive game modes from other consoles. But it is the latest version of the annual football simulation with up-to-date rosters—and if that’s what you’re looking for, it’s marked down nearly half from $50 right now.
Save $5 off the regular retail price for the new augmented reality, physical-meets-digital Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, which lets you build a course around your home and then command an RC kart via your Switch. It was tough to find over the holidays, but now the Luigi version of the game sees a slight discount here.
Katamari Damacy Reroll | $20
One of the wackiest games ever made finds a great new home on Switch with Katamari Damacy Reroll. This enhanced version of the cult classic PlayStation 2 original still sees you rolling an ever-growing ball around levels as you collect items, animals, people, and quite a bit more. Why? Well, to create a new constellation in the sky and appease the King of All Cosmos. It’s a delight and it’s $10 off at Amazon right now.
Ring Fit Adventure | $70
Nintendo’s Ring Fit Adventure was damn near impossible to find during the first few months of the pandemic, but now Amazon has it in stock for $10 off.

Nintendo’s biggest new Switch game is $10 off at Amazon right now.

By nature of the console’s middling popularity, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker seemed widely overlooked when it first debuted on Wii U. But now on Switch, it’s another low-key Nintendo gem to put on your wish list. This charming platform-puzzler is on sale right now for $7 off. Not only do you get the full original game, but also new courses inspired by the brilliant Super Mario Odyssey.

While the Switch is hardly ground zero for fighting game action, it has some serious gems on it, including Mortal Kombat 11 and Dragon Ball FighterZ. If the Switch is your console of choice and you still want to get the arcade-style experience, grab this PowerA Fusion Wireless Arcade Stick while it’s half-off at $65. It has a full-sized joystick and buttons and can be used wirelessly via Bluetooth or wired via USB-C.
We don’t have any of the core Kingdom Hearts games on Switch, but at least you can savor the music from the beloved Disney/Final Fantasy mash-up role-playing series with the newly-released Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory.

If you’re downloading games from the Switch eShop, then you’ll probably need some extra space. Luckily, the Switch accommodates affordable microSD cards, and there are even Nintendo-branded versions from SanDisk.
This official microSD card has a Mario mushroom on it and is currently on sale for $25, marked down $10. However, if you can deal without the branding, you can grab a standard 128GB SanDisk microSD card for $15… and it works just as well.
