With Black Friday 2019 quickly approaching, Nintendo has announced some of the deals it has lined up for the big shopping event.
We first heard about this through Target’s ad yesterday, but the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Switch bundle has been reconfirmed. Returning from last year, the package offers the game and console for $299.99.
Other highlights include select Switch titles for $20 off including Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, and more. The Joy-Con will be $20 off as well while the Poke Ball Plus will be lowered to just $19.99.
Here’s the full announcement from Nintendo:
In the Nindies Showcase presentation back in March, one of the most talked-about titles which was announced back then was The Red Lantern, a rogue-lite narrative game about sled dogs. The game was initially supposed to be released sometime this year; unfortunately that won’t be the case anymore. Developer Timberline Studio announced on Twitter that the game has been pushed back to 2020.

The latest major Android firmware update, Android 10, brought with it a variety of changes, as well as some compatibility issues with many mobile games. However, it seems like it also had some positive changes in store for gamers: the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is now officially supported by Android 10. While it was previously possible to use the Pro Controller with Android devices, correct button mappings have now been added to Android 10. The controller can be connected to supported Android devices via Bluetooth. If you play any traditional games on your phone or tablet that require more traditional controls rather than touch-based ones, this might be worth looking into.
