These are the best Nintendo Switch deals for July 2021.
Even with summer here, 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.
Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games | $30
Play the same Olympic events you watch on the TV with Sega’s officially-licensed Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games on Switch. It includes 18 events with a mostly realistic approach, although the inclusion of wacky costumes—including a silly Sonic the Hedgehog one—should help boost the fun a bit. Save $10 right now.
Clubhouse Games is the ultimate on-the-go party pack for friends and family. It brings together 51 board games, card games, and mini-games from around the world for local and online multiplayer matches, and draws from various cultures around the world. You’re bound to encounter a bunch of new, unfamiliar games in the mix here. Save $7 at Amazon.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses is yet another critically acclaimed strategy smash in the long-running series, and if you’re looking for an epic game to keep you entertained for potentially months ahead, then you can’t do much better than this. It’s $14 off at GameStop right now.
Just released on Switch, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword first debuted on Wii and is a fully-fledged fantasy adventure that can keep you busy while we wait for next year’s Breath of the Wild sequel. It’s been enhanced for the Switch and is already $10 off at Amazon.
Save $25 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 Mario and Luigi version are both nicely discounted.
Immortals Fenyx Rising | $25
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 more than half off at Amazon.
Bravely Default II | $40
Here’s another recent release that’s already discounted. If you’re looking for a meaty role-playing epic to sink your teeth into right now, Bravely Default II received very good reviews and has a distinctive battle system that might pull you in. It has a brand new story and characters, so this should be an OK starting point if you didn’t play the previous 3DS entries. Save $20 from Amazon.
Super Mario Odyssey | $38
Nintendo made another all-time great with Super Mario Odyssey, a larger-scale exploration of the series’ 3D branch. It has a bit more of a sandbox feel within large, open environments that are widely varied, and feels as wondrously creative as past gems like Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Galaxy. Save $22 at Amazon.
Persona 5 Strikers | $35
The Switch still hasn’t gotten Atlus’ celebrated PS4 role-playing odyssey Persona 5, but this recent spinoff Persona 5 Strikers just landed on Nintendo’s console. It keeps the stylish look and cool vibe of the original game with more action-oriented combat, and right now it’s $25 off.
New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe is an updated rendition of the Wii U original, delivering a classic-feeling side-scrolling Mario game with modern graphics. You can play with up to four players, plus the Switch version has extra accessibility features to help younger players start playing quickly. It’s $19 off right now.
Monster Hunter Rise | $49
One of this year’s best-reviewed Switch games, Monster Hunter Rise delivers a totally new edition of Capcom’s beloved action-adventure series, letting you team up with allies as you amass loot and take down massive beasties. Save nearly $11 off at Amazon right now.
