Dealmaster: The latest Super Smash Bros. game is on sale today
Ars Technica


Greetings, Arsians! The Dealmaster is back with another round of deals to share. Today's list is headlined by a modest but notable deal on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the latest entry in Nintendo's flagship fighting game series. It's just under $50 at Walmart and Amazon today. While that's only $10 off, it's the first significant discount we've seen on the game from major retailers, and deals on big first-party Switch games have generally been rare.
If you've ever played a Smash Bros. game before, you should know what to expect here. You can read our giant review for more details, but the short version is that we called it nothing less than “the best fighting game on any Nintendo system.” It'll almost certainly go on sale for less in the future, but if you own a Switch and have been interested in jumping aboard while the game is still in the earlier part of its lifecycle, this looks like a decent entry point.
If Smash Bros. isn't your thing, we also have deals on other big-name games like Resident Evil 2 and Kingdom Hearts III, Vizio 4K TVs, Apple's 9.7-inch iPad, ViewSonic gaming monitors, and much more. Have a look for yourself below.
