Nintendo Switch bundle in stock on Black Friday? How to check at Best Buy, Amazon and Walmart

This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2020, CNET’s gift picks with expert advice, reviews and recommendations for the latest tech gifts for you and your family.

The new Nintendo Switch Mario Kart Black Friday bundle is as tricky to get hold of as the Xbox Series X and PS5 — and it’s only been available for a few days. We’re keeping our eyes on the major retailers’ sales and will update this page if we see a deal become available.

Holiday gaming gift guide: What to know about the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch

So many games, so little time. From bottom left, clockwise: Xbox Series S (white); Xbox Series X (black); Nintendo Switch; PlayStation 4; Xbox One; Nintendo Switch Lite. (Thomas Wilde Photo)

This is the first holiday season for the ninth generation of video game consoles, as the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X (XSX) have recently hit the market, and Nintendo’s hybrid system the Switch is still a hot seller. The PS5 and XSX are likely to be two of the most-wanted gifts this year, for everyone from kids to nerdy adults.

Esywen Joypad Controller for Nintendo Switch review

When you buy a Nintendo Switch, you get a pair of Joy-Cons. The two halves of the controller snap onto either side of the Switch console enabling you to use it in handheld mode. In console mode, you can detach the Joy-Cons, snap them together (or don’t), and use them as a “normal” controller. Joy-Cons are super cool, yes, but they are also incredibly expensive to replace. As such, a robust market of cheaper third-party Joy-Con knock-offs exists.

In this Esywen Joypad Controller for Nintendo Switch review, we’re going to tell you all about why these knock-offs are actually a good buy, especially if you’re looking to save some cash. Even if you’ve got money to burn, though, there are a few reasons why these could still be a cool addition to your pile of Switch accessories.
