Mario Day is here, and with Mar10 comes plenty of Nintendo Switch deals to save you cash while you stock up your library, grab those controllers you've been eyeing up, or simply splash out on a new Lego set. Not only are we seeing Mario Day deals spread across a massive range of games and peripherals today, though, but you'll also find stock of rare special edition consoles up for grabs as well.
Perhaps the best Mario Day deal isn't exactly a deal at all. In fact, it's just the fact that this Mario Red & Blue Nintendo Switch is even on the shelves at all. Stock on any Nintendo Switch console has been particularly rare over the last few weeks, but Best Buy currently has this listed for its $299.99 MSRP. That's an excellent turn of events seeing as this recently released special edition flew off the shelves at launch earlier this year and hasn't made a return since.
Or, grab an Animal Crossing special edition for the same $299.99 MSRP. Of course, the traditional Neon Red & Blue and Gray consoles are also on the shelves right now as well.
Once your console is in the bag, then, you can check out some of the latest Mario Day Nintendo Switch game deals. Of course, the star of the show is the plumber himself so Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Maker 2, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, and Super Mario Party are all down to $38.88 (was $59.99) at Walmart right now. However, you'll also find the likes of The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate seeing $10 discounts this week as well.
When it comes to peripherals, we're spotting some record low prices on the Pro Controller (was $69.99 now $59) in these Mario Day Nintendo Switch deals, as well as $10 off a range of Joy-Con controllers, and an excellent $84.38 sales price on Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit (was $99.99).
There's plenty more where those came from, though, and we're rounding up all the best Mario Day Nintendo Switch deals just below.

Mario Day Nintendo Switch deals
Mario Red & Blue Nintendo Switch:
The latest colorway to hit the market, this Mario Red & Blue model is currently available at Best Buy. If you've been waiting for stock on this recent special edition to return, then, this is an excellent chance to scoop up the bright console. However, you'll need to move fast to secure this one.
Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Edition:
Best Buy also has the Animal Crossing Edition Nintendo Switch in stock this week. This, too, has been difficult to get your hands on over the last few months so if you're a fan of the more chilled vibe this desert island theme has to offer we wouldn't hesitate too long.
Nintendo Switch Gray:
Walmart has stock of the Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Cons right now, so if you're going for that monochrome look you'll want to head over here - you're also saving 99 cents off the MSRP as well.
Nintendo Switch Neon Red / Blue:
The more traditional Neon Red / Blue Nintendo Switch is also up for grabs this week, so if you're just looking for that classic experience you'll find consoles on the shelves at Best Buy.
Nintendo Switch | Mario Kart 8 Deluxe | 2 racing wheels:
You're saving $20 on this Nintendo Switch bundle at Best Buy, but seeing as deals like this have been absent from the shelves since Black Friday (and even then there was only one offer going) this is an absolute steal.
Mario Day Nintendo Switch game deals
Super Mario Odyssey:
While Super Mario Odyssey originally launched back in 2017 with the console itself, its price point has rarely wavered. This $20 discount at Walmart is an excellent opportunity to score a discount then, so we wouldn't expect it to last past these Mario Day deals.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe:
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe may feel like an older game, but try telling its price tag that. We usually see this classic title up for its regular MSRP, however, you can save a rare $10 in the latest Mario Day sales at Walmart.
Super Mario 3D All-Stars:
You haven't got much longer to grab a copy of Super Mario 3D All-Stars before Nintendo pulls it. This anniversary compilation of Super Mario 64, Sunshine, and Galaxy will be withdrawn from the market on March 31, so save $10 while you can.
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening:
Of course, if you want to head back in time for some classic Zelda action, Link's Awakening offers up a gorgeous remaster of that 1993 GameBoy title. You'll find it for $10 off in Best Buy's Nintendo Switch deals this week.
Paper Mario: The Origami King:
Paper Mario is back, and this time he's folded. Grab the 3D adventure / turn based strategy game for $10 off at Best Buy right now - that's a great discount on a rarely reduced title.
Yoshi's Crafted World:
While we may forget about Yoshi's Crafted World, this 3D platformer is an excellent way to get some more Nintendo 3D action into your roster of games. Plus, you can save over $20 at Walmart right now.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons:
If you missed the Animal Crossing surge of last year, you'll be glad to know that you can save $10 on one of 2020's biggest releases in Best Buy's Nintendo Switch deals. Considering stock shortages in the months after launch, this is a great price.
New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe:
New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe offers that classic sidescrolling platformer action and is also taking part in Walmart's Mario Day Nintendo Switch deals. You're getting a revamped version of the original Wii U title and plenty of included DLC as well.
Super Mario Party:
If you're after a party game to get everyone involved, Super Mario Party is also $20 off at Walmart this week. The board game-style collection of mini-games will have up to four players competing for the most coins and stars.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild:
While it may not be a part of the official Mario Day sales, Breath of the Wild is seeing an uncharacteristic price drop this week. You can save $10 on arguably the best game to hit the Nintendo Switch system, and that's a rarity considering this blockbuster has held onto its MSRP since 2017.
Luigi's Mansion 3:
Walmart has discounted Luigi's Mansion down to just $38.88 for today's Mario Day deals. Considering we regularly see this game at MSRP that's an excellent price, and especially good value if you're looking for some multiplayer action as well.
Mario Tennis Aces:
Mario Tennis Aces is available for $38.88 at Walmart right now, which means you'll be power sliding across the court in no time. This is a regular in the world of Nintendo Switch game deals, but we usually only see $10 - $15 off.
Super Mario Maker 2:
Super Mario Maker 2 puts you in the designer's seat, as you build and play through an infinite number of Mario levels. You'll find it down to $38.88 in Walmart's Nintendo Switch deals this week - though a Nintendo Switch Online subscription is recommended here.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate:
You can also save $10 on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at Best Buy right now - another game that doesn't see too many price cuts. That's perfect if you want to get back to the good old days of Nintendo beat 'em ups.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity:
Save $10 on Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, a spin-off / prequel to the events of Breath of the Wild. If you're looking to get your fix before the sequel drops, then, this is an excellent offer.
Pokemon Shield has taken a $10 price drop at Best Buy this week as well, though Sword is still sitting at MSRP. If you're yet to take the plunge into GameFreak's latest creature-catching RPG, this is an excellent price.
Mario Day Nintendo Switch accessory deals
Nintendo Switch Pro Controller:
The Pro Controller is perfect if you're after a more traditional docked experience with your Switch, or the Joy-Con grip proves a little too small. You'll find it available for $10 less than its usual $69.99 price in Walmart's Mario Day deals. That's excellent value for a more comfortable gamepad that still makes good use of the motion control and rumble functions.
Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Red / Blue:
Save $10 across a range of Joy-Con controllers. Whether you're opting for the traditional Neon Red and Blue or going for something a little different with the offers just below, this rare discount isn't one to be missed by collectors.

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is one for those of us who have played the original 2017 Mario Kart 8 Deluxe to death. It incorporates augmented reality into the classic Nintendo karting game to allow you to build your own courses around your home and then battle it out with AI opponents.
Hori Split Pad Pro (blue):
Joy-Con can get pretty pricey and even though they are currently on sale (see below), you can save even more cash by switching over to the Hori Split Pad Pro. With Nintendo's seal of approval, Hori has created a far less expensive version of the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con, and you can save nearly $10 right now. You'll also find the standard model .
