Below are the latest Nintendo products that can be currently pre-ordered at retailers:

This holiday season will be especially important for Nintendo. The heavy hitters of the year – Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu / Eevee and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – are finally launching, and the company will need success in order to reach its goal of selling 20 million Switch systems this fiscal year.

The holidays are also important for Nintendo due to the high amount of sales collected during the period. Reggie said that “in the Americas, about 60% of our revenue during that time frame.”

Throughout the day, Amazon has been adding deals to its website for Black Friday 2018 week. One of the major highlights is a 400GB microSD card, which is compatible with Switch. It’ll cost you just $79.99 – saving you $170 in the process.

There are a number of other notable deals running as well. If you’re looking to pick up a gaming-related book, use code NOVBOOK18 at checkout to save $5 on a purchase over $20.

Other Amazon deals include:
