It’s almost March 10, and thanks to the internet and some great brand marketing, it’s now Mario Day, a low-key celebration of all things involving Nintendo’s beloved plumber. Most importantly, it means there are plenty of discounts and promos to take advantage of, including valuable deals on Nintendo games that often sell for full price otherwise.
This time around, the deals started early, with retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon and Target discounting a range of physical and digital first-party Nintendo titles and various accessories. Nintendo and other retailers will also be offering a special Nintendo Switch bundle on March 10, including red Joy-Cons and a digital copy of your choice of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxeor Super Mario Odyssey.
Admittedly, the celebration of our little Italian friend feels like an attempt to hype up the Super Mario Bros. movie, which should hit theaters in just under a month. Still, there’s rarely such an opportune time as now to make a deal on all things Mario.
How about a chance for some others in Mario’s job to share the spotlight?
