If you usually use Boxing Day as a way to bulk up your game library, there are a few deals for Nintendo Switch games that are worth your time. You can also snag some nice discounts on a few Switch controllers and accessories.

Here are all the best Boxing Day sales related to the Nintendo Switch.

Looking to pick up a Switch during the Boxing Day sales? Amazon Australia is currently offering a Nintendo Switch bundle that includes the original console, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and three months of Switch Online for $422. That’s a pretty decent deal, considering a Switch goes for $469 by itself, and you’d be paying $560.90 all up if you bought everything separately.

If you’ve been sitting on the fence about picking up the Switch OLED Model, you can currently save $30 off the new Nintendo console. That’s not a huge discount, but it’s the best we’ve seen since the Switch OLED was released back in October.

If your Switch is suffering from the dreaded Joy-Con drift, or you just need a spare pair of controllers, there are some great Boxing Day deals available for the Switch’s controllers.

Almost every possible colour of the Joy-Con is currently on sale for $85, so you can save yourself just shy of $35. You can grab a new pair of controllers here:

The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller has also been discounted by 29%, and you can pick it up for $71.20.

If you managed to score a Switch for Christmas and want to keep your brand new console protected, you can pick up this ergonomic protective case for $15.95 (down from $38.99), and this travel case for $37.95 (down from $49.95).

If you aren’t too fond of the Pro Controller or want a more versatile option, 8BitDo’s excellent range of Bluetooth gamepads is also on sale. These are great alternative controllers, and some might argue that they’re better than the official Nintendo ones.
