Some Nintendo gift ideas for 2022

The end of the year is definitely the time when the biggest video game companies offer their best and original gift ideas. This is the case for Microsoft with discounts on Xbox Game pass subscriptions and also for Sony with bundles and gift cards. Now it’s Nintendo’s turn to come up with holiday gift ideas. Besides Christmas, Black Friday special offers will start soon, for this year 2022.

Nintendo gift ideas for Black Friday 2022

Since Black Friday officially started on November 17, the My Nintendo store and most of its partner stores are offering a bundle and gift box from November 20, including:

  • A standard Joy-Con controller for Nintendo Switch (Red and blue);
  • A Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game (downloadable from the Nintendo eShop);
  • A 3-month subscription to NSO (Nintendo Switch Online).

This bundle or gift box is offered at the My Nintendo store at a very affordable price. A gift idea not to be missed for this end of the year.

This set of deals made by Nintendo is just a small fraction of the Black Friday deals to please and allow those interested to enjoy the party vibe. In fact, whether online or in physical stores, there are many offers accompanied by reductions of more than 10% for every video game for Nintendo Switch.. A selection of the following video games are on sale at an attractively reduced price each:

  • Mario Party Superstars;
  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons;
  • The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening;
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild;
  • Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes;
  • Brave Default II.

Most Nintendo-related stores offer bundled video games for less on Black Friday. In addition, at this time, there is a significant reduction in the price of video games such as WarioWare: Together! or even a reduced price on Big Brain Academy: Brain vs Brain.

Giving Subscriptions to NSO (Nintendo Switch Online)

As Nintendo gift ideas for the year 2022, you can also opt for Nintendo Switch Online subscriptions with an Extra Set, especially for the family. The same as a standard Nintendo Switch Online membership, with an additional Bundle offer, the subscriber will have access to online games as well as retro NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) and Super NES games.

Note that you can also access classic video games from the old SEGA Genesis and Nintendo 64 consoles as well as downloadable games like Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion and the real-time Nintendo Switch game Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Lego Harry Potter: Years 1 to 4 at no extra cost.

The Nintendo Switch console: a gift idea to please your family

In addition to Black Friday gift ideas, for the holiday season and Christmas 2022, stores will be invaded by many offers made by Nintendo. An example is the Nintendo Switch OLED console, which is similar to the standard version, except that the latter has a 7-inch OLED-type screen that fits perfectly in tabletop mode.

In fact, the Nintendo Switch OLED version console has a total storage of 64 GB, a 7-inch screen and an integrated Ethernet port. A nice improvement over the standard console with the blue and red Joy-Con.

As a Christmas present, the Nintendo Switch OLED version console is perfect for family video games. Specifically, the console is equipped with 2 Joy-Cons that allow you to play Nintendo video games in multiplayer and online. Note that you can bring your Nintendo Switch OLED in your luggage if you travel during the holiday season and Christmas.

As a gift idea, especially if you plan to travel, choose the console version of the Nintendo Switch Lite. This Nintendo console is both light and compact, even though the controllers are not removable.

With the Nintendo Switch console, you can play the latest video games such as Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, Splatoon third name, Nintendo Switch Sports and Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope or the game Harry Potter Hogwarts Legacy: Hogwarts Legacy. These games will be available on the eShop and Nintendo partner stores starting November 18.

During the holiday season (Christmas and/or year-end), new Nintendo video games are offered at half price. Isn’t that the best gift idea, especially since Bayonetta’s third opus was just released?

To find other Nintendo gift ideas, you can always visit the franchise’s official stores or go directly to their official website especially for the Holidays. You can find gifts (Nintendo consoles, video games, etc.) to suit your budget, knowing that there may be a reduction in the price of the products.
