Mario Day saw plenty of big announcements this year, including a collection of new Mario Lego sets coming in August.

Whether you’re shopping for yourself or want to gift something special to the Nintendo fan in your life, this is a prime opportunity to get more for your coins.

Nintendo has knocked $20 off select Switch games that usually cost $59.99, like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Mario Party Superstars, and more. You shouldn’t have an issue finding digital copies at most retailers, but deals on physical copies is more hit and miss.

Amazon is offering a similar deal as well, just make sure to click “redeem” on the product page before checking out.
