Digital savings are live.
UPDATE: The next wave of amiibo are now up for preorder, including Ivysaur, Squirtle, Solid Snake, and the new Link’s Awakening amiibo.

Nintendo’s E3 2019 Direct is now behind us, but the excitement is real. Extremely real. Not only did we get concrete release dates for lots of games we’ve been waiting for as well as the surprise announcement of a Breath of the Wild sequel.

Best Nintendo Switch Game Deals
Amazon and Walmart are beating Nintendo’s digital sales prices, including a slew of great first-party Nintendo games at their lowest prices, ever. There’s still reason to buy from the eShop: you accrue loyalty points if you have a Nintendo account. Otherwise, Amazon has most of the Nintendo prices beat. Games are digital versions unless otherwise noted.

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller for $49.99
The Nintendo Pro Controller debuted at $69.99 and even at that price, it’s worth picking up. It’s a really excellent controller. This is the best price in as long as I can remember, and for $50 this is practically a steal. If you already have a Pro Controller, it might be worth grabbing an extra one while the price is so low.
