With the most fervent shopping day of the year fast approaching, Nintendo is putting some of the best Switch games on deep discount.

Here are 13 Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals you don’t want to miss.

Nintendo

13. Kirby Star Allies

$40

If you’re in the mood for a simple, pleasant game, Kirby Star Allies is a great pick. It adds tons of abilities to Kirby’s roster and has a fun multiplayer mode.

Nintendo

12. Paper Mario: The Origami King

$40

The Origami King may not be the best Paper Mario game, but this gorgeous RPG has an inventive (if repetitive) battle system and some of the funniest writing you’ll find in a video game.

Nintendo

11. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit

$60

This AR racing set brings Mario Kart into the real world, provided you have enough space to set up a virtual race track in your apartment.

Nintendo

10. Astral Chain

$40

Astral Chain is a stylish, fast-paced character action game, which is unsurprising coming from Bayonetta developer PlatinumGames.

Nintendo

9. Super Mario Maker 2

$40

Super Mario Maker was an unexpected experiment, letting players author their own Mario levels and download more online. The sequel does it all again, with way more options to improve your creations.

Nintendo

8. Splatoon 2

$40

The original squid game. Splatoon 2 is one of the best multiplayer games on Switch, and since its weapons are basically overpowered paintball guns, it remains as kid-friendly as competitive shooters get.

Nintendo

7. Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition

$40

Like the best JRPGs, Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition blends great combat with a wild, imaginative story. This remaster of a 2012 classic feels right at home on the Switch.

Nintendo

6. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

$40

Link’s Awakening was the beloved oddball of the Legend of Zelda series on Game Boy. Its Switch remake recaptures all the charm of the original with a fancy tilt-shifted art style.

Nintendo

5. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

$40

New Super Mario Bros. U languished on the Wii U, but its Switch revival proved it’s one of the best 2D Mario games in ages.

Nintendo

4. Fire Emblem: Three Houses

$40

Three Houses is the Switch’s premier fantasy dating sim, and I guess there’s a tactics game in there, too. With a surprisingly deep story, great combat, and plenty of tea parties, it’s one of the best games on the Switch.

Nintendo

3. Mart Kart 8 Deluxe console bundle

$300

If you haven’t jumped on the Switch bandwagon yet, this bundle gets you a Switch with a free copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and three months of Nintendo Switch Online.

Nintendo

2. Ring Fit Adventure

$55

The best Switch game to help you get swole is $25 off for Black Friday. Its steep price includes the ring controller (and is considerably less than a gym membership).

Nintendo

1. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

$40

Breath of the Wild made the Switch a must-have console at launch, and it’s still one of its best games. If you haven’t played yet, now’s the time to fix that.
