The most popular Nintendo Switch Lite bundles
With the console launching in September, we can only speculate about what bundles we’re likely to see. However, thanks to our unparalleled access to retailer sales data, here’s our best predictions.
1. Nintendo Switch Lite Zacian & Zamazenta special edition
Already confirmed as the Lite’s first special edition, the eye-catching Sword and Shield bundle is a light grey and features blue and pink buttons to coordinate with the two games’ artwork. The console doesn’t contain either of the new Pokemon games, but unsurprisingly a lot of retailers are bundling the two together.
2. Nintendo Switch Lite Pokemon Sword/Shield bundle
Even if you’re not interested in the special edition of the console, there’s a big selection of Switch Lite bundles including Pokemon out there from a range of retailers. Currys and GAME, among others, are offering just about every combination of the three core Switch Lite colours with Pokemon Sword, Shield, or the double pack that contains both games and enables you to truly catch ’em all!
3. Nintendo Switch Lite console standalone
The original Switch continues to see some of the best discounts when no games are thrown in, and while we typically recommend going with a console and game bundle for the best savings, don’t rule out picking up a Switch Lite by itself. The console will be available initially in grey, yellow and turquoise, and we imagine it will pick up a wider range of colours along the way.
4. Nintendo Switch Lite Overwatch bundle
Overwatch has arrived on the Switch, meaning you can now take one of the world’s biggest online shooters on the go wherever you go. There are plenty of excellent offers out there, including some which effectively give you Overwatch for absolutely nothing added to the Switch Lite’s £199.99 RRP.
5. Nintendo Switch Lite Mario Kart bundle
Of course, you can be virtually guaranteed Mario Kart will be bundled with the Nintendo Switch Lite right out of the gate, if not by Nintendo in a physical bundle then at least by numerous retailers. The Switch + Mario Kart bundle has been consistently one of our best-selling combinations for over two years, and being able to get involved for just over £200 (rather than at least £280) will be a surefire winner.
