If you were hoping to get your hands on the Nintendo Switch at a discount during Black Friday, there's no reason to wait. Walmart has a deal on a Nintendo Switch bundle right now that's much better than the bundle we'll see offered at various retailers later this month. You'll score the all-new Nintendo Switch console bundled with Minecraft for $298.59. You can choose between Gray or Neon Red and Blue Joy-Con controllers before checkout, too. Two-day shipping is free.

Why is this deal so much better than the other bundle we'll see priced at $299.99 come Black Friday? While Walmart's bundle today includes the new and improved version of the console, the bundle everyone will have later this month includes the first version of the Nintendo Switch and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. While it's still a great console, the new version has improved battery life that is essential when you're gaming on-the-go (which is partially what the console was made for!). It also has enhanced Joy-Con controllers as well to help fix some of the issues Switch owners have experienced with the original model. We break down the improvements in our review.

All-New Nintendo Switch console bundle with Minecraft

The main Nintendo Switch bundle on sale during Black Friday will be the old version of the console with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. This deal at Walmart gets you the new Nintendo Switch console with Minecraft for almost the same price right now!

$298.58 $329.98 $31 off

Minecraft is a great pick to include with the console too. Some of the other best Nintendo Switch games will be on sale for $29.99 each during Black Friday, so that would be a great time to expand your collection.

Kohl's has an exclusive deal coming up on the new Nintendo Switch bundled with a few important accessories and $90 in Kohl's Cash, but you'd have to wait 'til Black Friday to snag it and pay a slightly higher price at $319.99. If you're the occasional Kohl's customer, it could work out to be a better deal for you.
