Nintendo Switch Games On Sale For $40 Are Becoming Way More Common

Nintendo games, especially first-party titles, are notorious for sticking around $60 for years after release, only seeing significant discounts during major sales like Black Friday and Prime Day. However, that situation seems to be changing, at least for select first-party Switch games and pricey ports. For the past several months, games like Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Splatoon 2, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Super Mario Maker 2 have regularly been on sale for around $40, marking a major shift from recent years.

The growing trend seems to have started several months ago. For example, back in April, we covered a batch of Switch exclusives, including Breath of the Wild and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, going for $40 at Amazon. In June, many Switch exclusives were hovering around $42, but by July, they were back to $40 in a GameStop sale. Best Buy offered the same batch of games for $40 as part of its Labor Day Sale, and right now, as we near the end of September, both Amazon and Target are offering numerous Switch games for $40 each.

Pretty much every other major first-party Switch game you don't see on that list is sitting at $49.94 on Amazon and Best Buy right now. Meanwhile, expensive third-party ports seem to fall in price faster these days as well. Three 2K collections--Borderlands: Legendary Collection, XCOM 2 Collection, and BioShock: The Collection--just launched in May at $50 each, and they're already down to $30 at Amazon. Whether they're $10 or $20 off, it's incredibly strange to see so many major Switch games discounted at one time on a regular basis, but we seem to have reached the point in the Switch's life cycle where this is now common.
