Nintendo held a big event called Nintendo Direct on Wednesday evening US time, which was actually early Thursday morning in Japan. During the event, the company made a ton of announcements regarding the hot new Nintendo Switch, which is still impossible to buy anywhere other than Amazon. Included among the announcements were release dates for a number of new Switch games, and general release timing for a bunch more.

While some of the new titles are still a bit far off in the distance, five of them are already available for preorder on Amazon. And guess what: If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber (free 30-day trial here) you’ll save 20% on every single one of these new Switch games by preordering them now.
