Zelda Breath of the Wild, Animal Crossing New Horizons, and Minecraft Dungeons are all playable on the Switch, alongside countless other amazing titles.

However, Nintendo seemingly don't apply heavy discounts to the Nintendo Switch or its games, which means that if you're looking for a cheap console it may be wise to go for the Nintendo Switch Lite instead.

The handheld only version still packs a punch, but the only major difference is that you won't be able to 'switch' it to the TV and the controllers are fixed to the machine.

It's smaller too, which is great if you're travelling and in need of some much-needed entertainment!

We recommend heading to the bundle deals, especially if they include some new releases!
