Gaming Deals: Super Mario 3D World, Animal Crossing, and More


Finding deals on games is like finding money in your coat pocket from last year. It’s always welcome, and you were going to spend that money anyway! Let’s take a look at some of the best deals on games you can find right now.

Super Mario 3D World

Super Mario 3D World is one of the best console 3D platformers to release in a long time. That’s still true with its enhanced Switch port, which brings the Wii U classic forward to the current generation alongside a truly inspiring add-on, Bowser’s Fury. While the base game is as good as you remember from the Wii U, Bowser’s Fury is the real star of the show.

In the shorter add-on, Mario runs freely around a sprawling open world with no loading screens and no hard breaks between the levels and the overworld. Players are in agreement that Bowser’s Fury feels like a hint of things to come for the full 3D outings of our favorite plumber.

And, if you’re eager to see this glimpse at the future, you’re in luck. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury is on sale at Best Buy right now for $45. That’s a full $15 off of retail, a surprising discount for a first-party Nintendo game.

Animal Crossing

Animal Crossing is a truly charming game, putting players in the shoes of a villager who lives on a tropical island with a lot of little animal pals. Those animal pals are the star of the show, with their unique personalities and fun outfits making them a joy to talk to and interact with on your little island.

Players are able to decorate their homes, outfit their avatars, and beautify their islands. In short, Animal Crossing is like a little Zen garden that lives in your Nintendo Switch. And, if you’re looking to get in on the fun, you can scoop this gem of a title up for just $45 today over at Best Buy.

Super Mario 3D All Stars

This collection of great 3D Mario games is on sale for just $45 at Best Buy, just like the other games on our list. However, this is surprising, as the title was actually officially discontinued in March of this year. You can’t purchase this title on the Nintendo Switch eShop, so if you want it, you’ll need to grab this deal while it lasts! This deal is also available at Walmart if you don’t have any Best Buy locations nearby.
