Nintendo of America tweeted earlier today that they had teamed up with Best Buy to offer a $329.99 Switch bundle discount for this weekend only. The exclusive set will include a Switch console and choice of one of four titles-Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
Considering discounts on Nintendo games have been sparse and each of these games still cost north of $50 in most places, it’s a pretty good deal. Also, admit it: you’re probably buying at least one, if not two of these titles on day one anyway.
Which game would you choose as your first?

His love of gaming began with the Atari 2600 but truly came of age on the Super Nintendo. Looking forlornly at the staggering surplus of console and PC games yet to be played, he laments the long-ago days of only being able to buy one $70 32-megabyte cartridge and playing it until his hands ached.
