The Nintendo Switch is doing well for Nintendo, with Zelda and other launch games selling quite well. But with the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, many wondered if the platform holder would bundle the game with their latest console. Now, it seems they will do just that.
The first official Switch bundle has been outed by Nintendo’s own official store in Russia.
Consumers will be able to choose between two options: one with gray Joy-Con and another with the neon colors (note that these pages may be inaccessible unless you’re located in Russia or use a proxy). Both come with a physical copy as opposed to a pre-installed version.
Nintendo may be announcing this Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle during its Nintendo Direct tonight. It’s unclear if North America will be receiving the package at this time.
Reported originally by Nintendo Everything, this is the first official Switch console release that will be bundled with a game. With a major Nintendo Direct happening tonight, this could be one of it’s many announcements. We will report more as further information comes out.
