Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Nintendo Switch Bundle Leaks
The Nintendo Switch doesn’t ship with any included games. This leaves customers to buy one of the handfuls of games available. GameStop sold deluxe bundles with 2 or 3 games, but they cost $450 to $500. Now that everyone’s finishing Zelda: Breath of the Wild, we are turning our heads to the next title launches. The big titles include Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Mario Kart is due to launch at the end of the month with Splatoon coming in June. The release of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Nintendo Switch bundle, if real, will be the first official package.
The bundle was uncovered by Reddit users who posted the image on the r/NintendoSwitch sub. The Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle was discovered on a Russian store. The Nintendo Direct event didn’t have any announcements from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, but we know the game will launch on April 28th. If we do get a bundle, it’ll be a massive shift for Nintendo. The lack of a bundle at launch was a significant controversy since the $299 price tag jumped to almost $400 with the purchase of Zelda.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Nintendo Switch bundle would be the first official bundle
The package could and likely is fake, but if it’s real the bundle might only sell in Russia. The package shows the gray Joy-Cons on the front with the red and blue Joy-Cons on the side. The minor gaffe could mean the box was photoshopped, but it could also be some promotional box. Either way, it brings into question the validity of the packaging, since the Nintendo Direct event didn’t have any Mario Kart 8 Deluxe news.
