Nintendo has announced a new limited edition Switch console which will release alongside the upcoming Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury on 12 February 2021. Not only is the game looking pretty damn fantastic but the new console bundle is Nintendo’s most ambitious new bundle to date. For the first time since its launch back in 2017, the company has changed the actual Switch console shell from black to red.
Up to now, users who purchased the Nintendo Switch (non-Lite) console had to deal with the boring black device. Thankfully, the new Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury console has switched that up. Not only is the dock a striking red but the device itself is made from the same red plastic. In addition, the bundle comes with a cool red and blue carry pouch, Joy-Cons and grip. This is most likely the must-have Switch console variant of its generation.
The bundle will set you back $299, the same price as the regular Nintendo Switch console. It is important to note that the console does not come with the game. It will be available on 12 February 2021. Local pricing and availability have yet to be confirmed.
As for the upcoming Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury game, Nintendo released a new gameplay trailer showing off not only the main game but also the expansion. In addition, the developer shared plans to give away a set of unique collectable Mario 35th Anniversary Pins. Players need to complete a set of 14 additional Mario-themed missions game in order to be legible for the set. This includes buying the upcoming Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury game and participating in Splatoon Fests. Unfortunately, this program is not available in South Africa.
