Memory Card Deals for Your Switch: 256GB for $34.99 or 512GB for $84.99
The Nintendo Switch comes preinstalled with only 32GB of storage. To put that in perspective, Breath of the Wild alone will take up 40% of your storage capacity. I’d recommend you get at least a 128GB card if you want to store as many smaller digital titles as you want, and the larger 400GB card if you plan to download bigger titles.

- Samsung EVO Select 512GB at Samsung for $84.99
Celeste for Nintendo Switch for $4.99
This game normally sells for $19.99. I thought I was getting a great deal at $9.99, but technically this deal is even 50% cheaper than that. I’m generally not a very big platformer fan and yet I loved this game enough to die 6,899 times in order to get all the strawberries in the game (I’m not a very skilled gamer). In fact I’ve racked more hours on this game than any other Switch indie game in my library. Get it now before the price goes back up.
New Release: Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Reviewed)
We’ve published our review of Animal Crossing: New Horizons and not suprisingly, this game is “Amazing”. If you liked Stardew Valley, this one should be right up your alley.
Cuphead for $14.99
A brawl is surely brewing with this gorgeous, punishing game. Certainly you’ve heard about Cuphead by now. If not, here’s a great chance to get it at a discount.
Nintendo Switch Lite In Stock at Best Buy and Walmart
Thanks to the shelter-in-place policy, gaming consoles are clearing off shelves. Fortunately, Best Buy and Walmart has resupplied their online inventory of the Nintendo Switch Lite. The newest color in the Nintendo Switch Lite lineup is available for preorder. It’s out on April 3. The Switch Lite is $100 less than the Switch and can play almost all of the same games. The Switch Lite can play the same titles as the original Nintendo Switch. It’s lighter and the controls are non-detachable, although it is still compatible with Joy-Cons or the Switch Pro controller if you buy them separately. The only caveat is that you can’t play in docked mode (i.e. on a TV), but for the majority of you who plan to play the Switch on the go, this is a small price to pay
HORI Nintendo Switch Fighting Stick Mini: Street Fighter II Edition for $44.99

Nintendo Switch V2 for $299.99
Even if there are no Switch console deals, the least we can do is make sure you get the V2 model. The version 2 model boasts about 2 more hours of battery life, which is certainly not insignificant. It raises the battery expectancy from 2.5-7 hours to 4.5-9 hours. It might be confusing to some people because many stores still sell the older model alongside the new one. The easiest way to tell if you’re getting the V2 model is the packaging. The new V2 model has a new box with a predominantly Mario red color.
