UPDATE: Kmart’s Black Friday deals that we reported on last week are now live, and the Switch deal is actually better than anticipated. You’ll be able to get the Switch with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and three months of Nintendo Switch online for $448.
These deals start on Friday and last all weekend. If you’re after the rest of Kmart’s deals, you can find them here. As always, these are products that Kmart don’t often stock and get them in just for the Black Friday weekend event.
They haven’t sold games or consoles since 2015, but it looks like Kmart is back in the game.
We can reveal that for Black Friday, Kmart will be selling Nintendo Switch consoles and accessories. Nintendo Switch consoles will be sold both online and in-store at $448, Joy-Con sets will be sold at $109 each and Nintendo Switch Pro controllers will be sold at $85 each.
Obviously, none of these are mind-blowingly cheap, but it’s definitely a pretty big deal that one of Australia’s most mainstream retailers will sell video game products once again.
It’s unclear if this signals Kmart getting back into the video game market long-term, but it’s certainly interesting to see them stocking products after bowing out so long ago.
In terms of other gaming products, there will be a gaming desk with LEDs for $129 and a gaming chair for $99. We’ve also heard that Kmart’s Cyber Monday sale will focus on gaming as well, so read into that what you will.
