It’s almost March 10th, which, thanks to the internet and some slick brand marketing, is now Mario Day — aka a low-key celebration of all things involving Nintendo’s beloved plumber. Most importantly, it means there are plenty of discounts and promotions to take advantage of, including worthwhile deals on Nintendo games that frequently sell out at full price.
This time, the deals are starting early, with retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, and Target discounting an array of first-party physical and digital Nintendo titles and numerous accessories. Nintendo and other retailers will also be running a special offer Nintendo Switch Bundle on March 10th, which includes red Joy-Cons and your choice of a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 DeluxeAnd New Super Mario Bros U Deluxeor Super Mario Odyssey.
Admittedly, celebrating our little Italian friend sounds like an effort to continue building hype for Super Mario Bros movie, which is set to hit theaters in just under a month. However, there’s rarely a time as good as now to pick up a bargain on all things Mario.
How about a chance for others in Mario’s orbit to share the spotlight?
