When is Black Friday 2020?

This year Black Friday falls on Friday November 27, the fourth Friday of the month.

It is always on the fourth Friday, regardless of year, because it is the day after the American holiday Thanksgiving – the fourth Thursday in November.

That's not to say the sales wait until then, as retailers often start cutting prices a week or even two before the day itself.

We'll be updating this page with the best Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals, so check back closer to the big day.

When is Cyber Monday 2020?

Cyber Monday lands on November 30 this year.

Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals tend to sell out pretty quickly, so we'd recommend snapping up a deal as soon as you see it rather than waiting around for Cyber Monday.

Nintendo Switch Black Friday 2020 deals to look out for

There were plenty of Nintendo Switch deals last Black Friday, and we'd anticipate there being some good ones this year too.

While other console names will be releasing newer generation hardware, the Switch and the Switch Lite are going nowhere. So the only movement we're likely to see is on price.

Last year, Nintendo itself and retailers such as Very, Game, Currys PC World and Argos all offered savings on the Switch and Switch Lite.

We'd expect very tempting price cuts again this year, but as Switch devices hold onto their value the big bargains might be limited.

More likely is that we'll see highly competitive pricing on top game bundles and Switch Online Memberships.

What Nintendo Switch games will be on sale on Black Friday

There is always a good chance that any top games from the year will be on sale, either separately or as part of bundles.

We'd definitely expect Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Legend of Zelda: The Breath of the Wild to feature.

Mario Kart 8 and Paper Mario: the Origami King are also both likely to be popular and see discounts.

What's the difference between the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo Switch Lite?

Whereas the standard Nintendo Switch can be used both at home with your TV or on the go as a portable console, the Nintendo Switch Lite is solely a handheld console.

Funnily enough, the Lite is… a bit lighter, and it also has a slightly smaller screen and smaller battery capacity.

In terms of games, the Lite will play any regular Switch game just as long as it supports Handheld Mode.

When will the Nintendo switch be back in stock?

Nintendo Switch's Black Friday availability was temporarily impacted by the release of the PS5 and Xbox Series X.

But the portable console is largely back in stock and available across retailers.

There may be some shortage of specific bundles, but do keep checking back as retailers will want to re-stock where possible before November 27.

Is the Nintendo Switch worth buying?

That depends on the sort of gaming you are planning on doing.

The Switch is aimed at children, families and commuters as well as traditional gamers.

The console is great for group fun if you're playing Mario Kart or one of the many other popular titles, plus it's the only console you'll be able to play the likes of Pokemon and Super Smash Bros on.

'Serious' gamers who play fast-twitch shooters and racing simulators will want to stick to the Xbox One, Series X, PS4, PS5 or PC.

How much does a Nintendo Switch cost?

We reckon a good price for the Nintendo Switch in 2020 is £279, the same as last year. As the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the supply of parts earlier in 2020, the price of the c0nsole hasn't dropped much at all so far this year.

Meanwhile, the Nintendo Switch Lite is usually available for under £200.

If you see a console for less than these prices, you're probably onto a good deal.

How to charge a Nintendo Switch controller

There are two ways to charge Switch controllers.

You can attach them to the Joy-Con charging grip, itself attached to the Switch dock via USB cable, which will charge the controllers.

Alternatively, you can attach the controllers to the Switch itself and charge the controllers that way.

Does the Nintendo Switch have Bluetooth?

The Switch doesn't come with built-in Bluetooth support, so Bluetooth headphones can't connect directly to the console straight from the box.

To get around the issue, you could pick up a set of headphones which comes with a USB-C Bluetooth adaptor.

Or you could pick up a Bluetooth adaptor designed to work with the Nintendo Switch.

Can you watch movies on the Nintendo Switch?

The video streaming options on Nintendo Switch are a bit limited compared to other consoles, but you can sync your Google Play and iTunes accounts to your Switch to watch your purchased movies.

Can the Nintendo Switch Lite play Nintendo Switch games?

Any portable-compatible games you can play on the standard Switch, you can also play on the Switch Lite.
