Nintendo Bundles Abound This Holiday Season
Games, guides, steel books, and controllers, oh my.
Beginning this month and leading straight into the holiday season, Nintendo is bringing a variety of bundles to retailers all across Canada. If you’re in the market for a New Nintendo 2DS XL or a Nintendo Switch game, then they just might have something for you.
First up is a new purple/silver New Nintendo 2DS XL with Mario Kart 7 pre-installed, all for a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $199.99. In addition, the already available black/turquoise and white/orange color schemes will also be updated on the same day to include the game.
That very same day, new “starter pack” versions of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, and Super Mario Odyssey will arrive in stores with strategy guides packed in. Each one retails for an MSRP of $79.99.
Fast-forward to December 7th and the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch, and you’ll find a bundle containing the game, a steel case, and a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller emblazoned with the Super Smash Bros. logo, all for an MSRP of $179.99. If you’d rather just have the controller by itself, though, you can get that on the same day for an MSRP of $99.99.
Alongside these releases, new titles are on the way, including Super Mario Party on October 5th, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! on November 16th, and the aforementioned Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on December 7th, all on the Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo 3DS won’t be left out, either, as WarioWare Gold and Yo-Kai Watch Blasters were released recently, while Luigi’s Mansion is going to arrive just in time to make this Halloween the most spook-tacular it can be on October 12th.
“We want to give people a variety of options and price points when shopping for themselves or the Nintendo fans in their lives,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, President and Chief Operating Officer of Nintendo of America. “Whether looking for a portable system for a first-time gamer or a cool controller to play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo has great gifts for all ages this holiday season.”
