Switch Collecting - Collection Pics and Best Prices

Post by olrodlegacy » Mon Apr 17, 2017 10:11 pm

I'm presuming some of you will be going for a full set of Switch games, especially at this early stage where there isn't a lot to collect.

To date, there are eight Switch games on the shelves in UK stores, with a further few in North America and Japan.

Keeping this to physical, as offers on the digital versions are hard to come by at the moment...

With all that in mind, here are the best offers I've found after shopping around. Currently only missing Just Dance and Lego City Undercover from my own collection.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild: £47.71 Amazon, £48.00 Tesco, £49.00 Asda, £49.99 Argos, £59.99 GAME and Nintendo UK Store
Zelda: Breath of the Wild Limited Edition: £89.99 Nintendo UK Store (OutofStock), £109.50 Amazon
1-2-Switch: £32.95 Amazon, £34.00 Tesco, £34.99 Argos, £35.00 Asda, £39.99 Nintendo UK Store, £54.95 or £39.99 for DL code Game Online
Just Dance 2017: £39.99 Nintendo UK Store, £42.00 Amazon and Tesco, £44.99 Argos, £49.00 GAME
Super Bomberman R: £40.00 Tesco (OutofStock), £44.99 Argos, £45.99 Amazon, £49.99 GAME
Skylanders Imaginators: £49.99 Amazon, Argos and Tesco, £54.99 GAME
Snipperclips Joy-Con Pair: £69.99 Argos, £79.99 Nintendo UK Store and Amazon, £89.99 GAME
LEGO City Undercover: £29.99 Amazon, Argos, £44.00 Tesco, £44.99 GAME, £45 Asda
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe £41.93 Gameseek, £42.00 Amazon and Tesco, £43.95 The Game Collection, £47.99 Argos, £49.95 John Lewis, £49.99 w/ Boo Mug, Feather Mug or Luigi tee Nintendo UK Store, £49.99 d GAME
Puyo Puyo Tetris £34.99 Argos and Amazon, £36.85 ShopTo, £39.99 GAME
Disgaea 5 Complete £45.00 Amazon, £49.99 Argos, £74.99 Nintendo UK Store (Limited Edition)
Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers £34.95 Amazon, £34.99 Nintendo UK Store (Free Tee / Poster)



Got my Skylanders for £47 in Game Wardour Street in London after a pricing error - not seen it that cheap anywhere else.

Anyone found anything better? I'll do a separate post for accessories later on.

Will try to get a pic of my collection all together too.

Yes - but as it stands it's the only Switch eshop game available in shops, and hence there are competing prices for people to take into account!

Two new physical releases this week, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe joined by Puyo Puyo Tetris on shelves in the UK.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe comes with both mugs if you ordered early from the Nintendo UK Store.

Oddly, Puyo Puyo isn't available with them.

UPDATE - Only found two listings for Puyo Puyo online - even Amazon doesn't have pre-orders going on it. Odd... is the physical release coming after all?

The collecting nerd that is me went to my local GAME and asked if I could take home the three display cases pictured at the link below.

Had Snipperclips and Zelda already, purchased the expansion pass and a couple other things, so they let me take all three. Result!

Nope - they don't even normally give you the little cards they sometimes having hanging out on display. They just give a printed receipt with the code on.

They really are pleasing to have, and make the shelf look complete. Probably won't be in shops for long either!

I believe there's a physical version on the way - picked up the Minecraft story mode physical on Wii U this week so my Nintendo Minecraft collection is complete as it stands...
