These Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals won’t last long, that’s for sure. So grab a power-up and get moving because once the deals are gone, they’re gone. Think of it like any other Mario Bros. game–instead of saving Princess Peach, you’re rescuing the console from other shoppers. But the original concept (a game with a good old race against time, enemy battles, and a trophy-awarding ending) stays exactly the same.

Anyways, now onto Nintendo’s Black Friday video game deals.
