I'm loving the Nintendo Switch at the moment. Having spent the past week playing the upcoming Super Mario Bros Wonder, it's actually my favourite gaming console right now. Which got me thinking: "will there be any deals for Amazon's Prime Big Deal Days worth buying?"
The answer, it turns out, is a big yes! Seeing as Nintendo Switch games rarely hit the big discounts, it's great to see some cut price deals. Here I've rounded up five of the best Switch games this Prime Day that I'm really tempted to buy. If not for you, then check out the best Prime Big Deal Days for T3's other top picks.

Best Nintendo Switch game deals
Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope:
was $59.99, now $19.99 at Amazon
I remember playing Rabbids at an E3 showcase some years ago and loving the tactical nature of play. I've never actually gone and bought the game, though, but at this kind of discount level it'd be an ideal quick-buy for short-fire play sessions while commuting or traveling.
Ring Fit Adventure:
was $79.99, now $59.99 at Amazon
A game plus a workout? Ring Fit Adventure was a massive deal when it launched years ago and, if you're looking to get more active in the run-up to the end of the year, this is a fun way to do so. The controller is included, too, to make that interactivity more accessible.
Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Complete Edition:
was $59.99, now $40.88 at Amazon
Probably my favourite game which I've played through on the PlayStation 3. Yes, that long ago! Despite its age, the third Witcher title is still a stunning story. And in its Complete Edition you get all the add-ons, plus the ability to play it mobile while on the go thanks to the Switch's portable format.
was $59.99, now $39.99 at Amazon
One of the Switch's darker and more difficult titles to master, I played the preview version of the new Metroid and have long been pondering whether to take the plunge and invest. At this price it seems like a no-brainer, really, especially for a first-party Nintendo title (these never see big price drops)!
was $39.99, now $24.99 at Amazon
As you can tell from my love of Mario, I really enjoy platform games. As in the old-school side-scrolling ones. Cuphead brings that right up to date – and in bastard-hard form too – and makes for a mega challenge that's well worth investing in at this price.
