  • Many retailers are discounting Nintendo Switch consoles and bundles as part of their Black Friday promotions, and with the new OLED Nintendo Switch released last month there could be some great deals on the original console. So far, the cheapest we've seen for the console only is £230 in store only at Morrisons, but as it's not available online and stock isn't guaranteed it's probably not worth a special trip.

    Last year, we saw the Nintendo Switch Lite starting from £189, and the cheapest bundle with a game from £199 – though the best deals (eg, Tesco, Aldi) got snapped up quickly. The best deals were all in bundles - be sure to check the game or accessories in the bundle you choose are right for you before buying.

    Games are normally about £40 separately, and Nintendo Switch Online (used in some games, like Animal Crossing) is normally £6.99 for three months, or £17.99 for 12 months.

    Here's what we spotted at 11:58am on Mon 29 Nov:

  • Based on the popular Nintendo game Mario Kart, Mario Kart Tour is now available to download and play for free on Apple and Android smartphones and tablets. Simply download the game via Apple's App Store or Google Play for Android. 

    For other free games, see 'Free' PS4 games with Playstation Plus and 'Free' Xbox games with Xbox Live Gold.

    Is it really free? 

    The game is totally free to download and play, you'll just need an internet connection and a free Nintendo Account. There are, however, optional in-app purchases where you’d be spending real money to obtain virtual items such as new cars/characters, or a monthly 'Gold Pass' which unlocks special items. 

    How to prevent children from racking up a bill

    We've previously heard of children using similar games to make in-app purchases without their parents’ knowledge, resulting in unexpected bills (see our 'My child spent £150 on Fortnite' MSE news story from last year). 

    When setting up a Nintendo Account, you can choose to set up a special account for kids aged 15 and under, which allows parents/guardians to use parental controls to apply restrictions to the child's account, and will receive an alert if any purchases are made. 

    Although it is also possible to restrict in-app purchases directly on the device. See Apple's in-app purchases help or Google's in-app purchases help for how to do this.
