Probably only likely to appeal to a handful of new Switch owners, but Amazon Germany have a 3-for-2 on various games, films etc.

The cheapest item is free and the amount is deducted automatically at checkout.

Not all the games included are that great, or even good deals, but these three are pretty pricey usually and here they work out at £35 each - and Zelda has been hard to find for much under £45 and the other two are usually £40+.

Latest hottest deals for them I found brought the three out at a total of just under £122.

It comes up at £105.13 using Amazon's currency converter. Or 114,75€ if you want to pay in Euros.

Some other Switch games in the offer (prices in Euros)

Splatoon 2 - 50,99
Skyrim - 44,99
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Collectors Edition 69,99 (which is a pretty good price I think!)
Fire Emblem Warriors Limited Edition - 49,99 (again, not bad - £45 deal on here got hot!).

Don't think the other games in the offer really that well priced.

The packaging will be fully in German (complete with those massive ugly USK logos) so these are no good for people who like to trade or resell their games. The likes of CeX and GAME won't accept them for trade and people will understandably pay less for them if you look to sell them on.

The game cartridges themselves however are exactly the same as you'd get in a UK copy so fully playable in English.

edit - I thought I should add that any Limited Edition or Collector's Edition box set will be a Europe wide copy (ie the same one we get in the UK) so the box will have English, German, French etc rather than just German - this applies to the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Collector's Edition and the Fire Emblem Warriors Limited Edition for example. It's the solus games that will be full German packaging.

Good deal for those that do not have the games already as they are buying a new switch.....but I got Mario O free, paid 38quid for Kart.....so only Zelda to get....now if this was sold on its own for 35 quid then I'd be all over it! Non the less a good deal for all three excellent titles and thanks for posting

Wish I had the spare cash! Zelda, Fifa and Spaltoon 2 for £106 delivered. Wow! For comparison, thats £137 on Amazon UK.
HAWT!
There are some that sell the games without the casing on ebay and they are UK seller. I bought splatoon 2 and Mario kart without casing each for 35 quid. And Mario oddsey for 34 quid. Tried to post it here but mods said that they do not approve of the seller or something along those line. Anyway been spending too much..
Mario kart, fifa and skyrim for £96... Tempted... So tempted... No, must finish Zelda first
Pokken tournament is another option for just under 50 euro.

It appears to be all as I’ve chosen 3 totally different games
I want these 3 games but haven't even got a switch yet. Anybody (with a crystal ball) think that it's worth waiting and buying later in the year?

It appears to be for any games currently released (doesn't include pre-orders, sadly), but you could mix and match over platforms if you're struggling for Switch ideas, dependant on value.

Nintendo games (especially the premium console exclusives) hold their value. I don't think for a second you'll find a better deal than this for the next year on these three. Could be wrong though!

If you head to the confirmation page. (before you click to sumbit your order) you will see the discount applied there.

Thanks, I did realise this while the comment was being approved. It's only a bit embarassing

If you go to the link in the OP, you can filter them (left side of the page) - I think it was into video games, and then in to which console.

I know there was Bomberman and Puyo Puyo, but they're still way too expensive individually in my opinion.
Zelda
Splatoon 2
Mario kart

Got them for £106.50. I already have them all bar Zelda so if I can get £35-40 for the ones I have on ebay then it shouls work out a good deal. Thanks OP.

HOT Deal.

Can anyone help, I have around £80 Amazon vouchers but checked T&C's and I can't seem to use them on the .DE site. Anyone got any workarounds or suggestions?

Thanks
Been wanting BOTW for a while, already have Mario Kart and Odyssey. Not really fussed on getting anything other than BOTW but this is a cracking deal so have Splatoon and Mario/Rabbids in my basket and just contemplating clicking buy...
Not in anyway knocking the deal, the fact it is at 489 degrees as I write this is evidence enough that for this platform, the deal seems worth it. But, this is essentially £35 per game, what is the RRP for Select games? Do they cost as much as PS4 and Xbox One? I don't own the platform but thought the games would be less than the other consoles due to its technical inferiority. Charging £40 plus for games that play in 1080p max in a 4k era seems absurd!?

The RRP is mostly £50, the same as Xbox and PlayStation. And most games on Xbox One and PS4 run at 1080p max for most people, 4k is a tiny minority.

Plus the cards Switch games come on cost a lot more than a Blu-ray disc.

But yeah, Nintendo games usually cost a bit more and usually hold their value. Zelda has been out nearly a year and is still £45+ in a lot of places.

I see what you are saying and the Nintendo tax is almost absurd for cross platform stuff.

However, I was playing Mario Odyssey with my son last night and elements in the game are pure genius. No way should Nintendo give up any of their IP and I can't see prices for their first party stuff dropping anytime soon.

Of course!

Standard launch day RRP is £45-£50 across all three of the consoles. The switch games seem to be holding their value pretty well, especially nintendo's own games. Probably because they are great games with hours upon hours of gameplay. The same is true of PS4 and Xbox games, poor ones hit £20 incredibly fast but better ones tend to hold out for longer.

As for the inferiority comment (and i own PS4 and vita as well just for the record) - Not many people have 4K Tv's and those that have are using them to stream highly compressed 4k content or play games at very low fps due to the 4k resolution. The switch is graphically inferior, yes, but it is also a far superior console for being able to play huge, engrossing console quality games (albeit at 720p/1080p) anywhere you want to. It's instant on and easy to just pick up and play, dock it and continue playing seamlessly.

When is the last time you played your ps4 or xbox on a car journey, or on a flight, or in a foreign hotel room, or an airport? the Ps Vita has cross save and cross play functionality with the ps4, but it doesn't even come close to the flexibility and ease of use of the Switch, in my experience.
