The best deals on Nintendo Switch packages

Packages are always a great way to save money on games, drivers or additional hardware if you planned to buy them anyway, and sometimes it can be even cheaper to get a console for itself. At the moment, these are scarce on the ground given the recent publication of Switch, but we have scanned the web for the best offers and we have listed them below

Nintendo Switch with Mario + Rabbids ($ 488):

If you're looking for the console itself, JB Hi-Fi currently has the best price, although it only costs $ 20 compared to the normal $ 469. But if you also pursue Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle or Sonic Forces, you can grab one (or both) of these titles for only $ 39 each if you add them to your payment along with the discounted console. It is available with Neon Joy-Cons or Gray Joy-Cons [194590004].

Nintendo Switch Q & A

If you need to know more before releasing your dosh on the latest Nintendo news, here are some answers to your burning questions.

What are Joy-Con controllers?

When you are buying a driver & # 39; Joy-Con & # 39 ;, you will actually get a couple of drivers that you can connect to the sides of the Nintendo switch when it is not in use or when you play in tablet form away from the TV.

If your switch is connected, you can delete the Joy-Con and play with one in each hand. The left hand has a controller with an analog joystick and d-pad, the right hand handles the one with a second analog and the usual A, B, X and Y buttons.

What is the Joy-Con Grip controller? 19659005] The Joy-Con Grip is presented as an additional accessory that is used to join the two Joy-Con controllers in order to form something a little more solid to hold it. It has extended handles and a plastic block to make Joy-Con, otherwise quite small and light, look more like a standard controller. Fortunately, Nintendo is providing one in the box with the switch, so you will not have to buy one separately.

Is there a Nintendo Switch Pro driver?

Yes, yes, although it does not come with the console. Fortunately, you do not really need this driver to play anything, as it works more as a premium option for those who feel more comfortable with a single solid unit in their hands. However, prices are not cheap, with an average of around $ 99, although sometimes you can catch them for $ 89 or even $ 79. Currently there are no signs of a Nintendo Switch Premium Edition with a Pro controller included, but that It could change over time.

Maybe not! Since the Joy-Con controller can be divided into two, you can use each one as a rudimentary controller when it is turned sideways because each controller has an analog lever and some form of face buttons. So far we have seen that the 2K NBA series, Snipper Clips and Mario Kart are used in this way for the local multiplayer mode in docked and tablet modes.

However, if you want to play games for four players, then you will need to invest in an additional pair of Joy-Con controllers or, if you are really committed, a complete set of Pro controllers. You can buy the Joy-Cons as a pair that will save you a bit of dosh if that is your intention anyway, but if your friends have a switch you can just get them to bring yours.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild Deals

The latest in the Legend of Zelda saga, The Breath of the Wild, has been praised since launch, and remains the most important reason to buy a Switch. In general, Zelda games do not come down in a hurry and, given how much the console is managing the success of this title, we can not see it coming down soon. You can find it in a package, but otherwise take a look at the best deals we have found.

Nintendo Switch Micro-offers memory card

The switch comes with 32GB of internal storage, so you'll want to buy a cheap memory card or two if you're planning to make digital purchases or just need space for the inevitable patches of repair of games. However, do not worry, they are surprisingly cheap, even with the 64GB that reach less than $ 50.

Be aware of Micro SD cards that are also known as, depending on their size, MicroSDHC (up to 32GB) or MicroSDXC (up to a huge 2TB soon). Nintendo has its own branded cards, but will pay a small premium for the privilege of tagging. So, for now, we'll take a look at this range of MicroSDXC cards adaptable to Nintendo switches.
