Prime Day Nintendo Switch best deals: Save on Link’s Awakening, Luigi’s Mansion 3 and more (Update: Expired)

Prime Day‘s second day is underway, giving Nintendo Switch owners plenty of great deals to choose from — and not just from Amazon. Nintendo rarely discounts its own games, but Prime Day and its rivals have brought down the price of the portable console’s biggest titles, including The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Paper Mario: The Origami King. Don’t delay, however, as we expect these Nintendo sales to expire soon.

Although the Switch Lite isn’t on sale, Amazon is throwing in a 128GB memory card. What’s special about this card is that it’s officially licensed by Nintendo, comes in red and has a Super Mario Bros. mushroom on it. The Switch Lite comes in blue, coral, gray, turquoise and yellow.

The remake of Link’s Awakening from the original Game Boy has players exploring a strange island as Link.

Luigi returns in another ghost hunting adventure in Luigi’s Mansion 3. He’ll once again try to find his missing brother while trying not to be afraid of any ghosts.

Mario is in a different kind of adventure in Paper Mario: The Origami King. Once again, he’ll have to save the Mushroom Kingdom, but this time around, he doesn’t have to just jump on turtle shells as the Paper Mario series uses RPG mechanics.
