Nintendo Switch games tend to have somewhat underwhelming discounts compared to PlayStation and Xbox games, but that’s not the case for Black Friday 2020. Some of the best Black Friday game deals we’re seeing this year are for the Switch, and that includes one of the best games of 2019: Fire Emblem: Three Houses. The turn-based tactics game will be on sale for just $27 in GameStop’s Black Friday sale, which kicks off next Wednesday, November 25, at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET.
