This Dell Black Friday deal starts early: Dell is offering the OLED Nintendo Switch with white Joy-Con, the recently released Splatoon 3 game, and a second wireless controller, all for just $399.99. This deal is cheaper than buying the Nintendo Switch OLED game ($349.99 MSRP) and Splatoon 3 ($59.99 MSRP) alone, so you’re essentially getting the controller for free. This is also the only currently running Switch OLED deal available.

Splatoon 3 came out a few months ago, so a major price drop is unlikely. It is an excellent family friendly game which means that everyone including kids can enjoy this game. It also has fun local and online multiplayer modes so everyone can get in on the action at the same time. The MGC Switchplate Wireless Controller is an aftermarket controller that normally costs $39.99. It features two magnetic switch covers so you can choose black or white colors, dual rumble motors, adjustable analog sticks, and mappable back buttons. It’s compact and sized for smaller hands. Overall, it’s a welcome addition.

If you don’t think you want the excellent OLED upgrade, then the standard Nintendo Switch is still a great console. If this deal sounds familiar, it’s because we saw something very similar last Black Friday. Nintendo isn’t exactly an innovator when it comes to Black Friday deals, but this is still the best Switch console deal we’ve seen this month. For the price of the Nintendo Switch console, you will receive a free copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a 3-month membership to Nintendo Switch Online.

Animal Crossing Edition for Nintendo Switch Console
If you plan to use the gift card, you essentially pay only $264.99 for the Nintendo Switch console. If you’re having a hard time finding ways to spend that $35 gift card, the easiest thing to do is buy just a few Nintendo Switch games or accessories. You might think Dell only sells PCs, but they actually have a pretty healthy range of popular Nintendo Switch games and gear.
Is the OLED Switch worth it compared to the Switch?
If you can afford the Switch OLED premium over the non-OLED model, then we think it’s definitely worth the upgrade. The biggest improvement, of course, is the display. The Nintendo Switch OLED features an OLED display that offers better image quality than the original LCD display. This includes deeper blacks, more vibrant colors, and better color blending. Text is sharper and also easier to read. The screen isn’t much bigger (7″ on OLED vs 6.2″ on non-OLED), but it looks much bigger thanks to a thinner bezel. Other notable updates are a new and improved kickstand, a wired Ethernet port on the docking station, and a unique white Switch shell and matching Joy-Con.
Will there be more OLED Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals?
It’s hard to say. Dell is the only vendor so far that has promoted any OLED Switch deals for Black Friday, and it’s unlikely they’ll be running two separate ones at the same time. Outside of Black Friday, we haven’t seen the Nintendo Switch OLED on sale, unless you count the models imported from the UK.
