In tandem with the mustachioed plumbers' 35th anniversary, Nintendo has unveiled their new Mario Red & Blue Edition Switch! (not to be confused with a Spider-Man themed crossover!)
The base console retails for the standard £279.99 price tag, with four various bundles available to pre-order:
- Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury Pack [£329.99]
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Pack [£329.99]
- Super Mario 3D All-Stars Pack [£329.99]
- Mega Pack [£379.99] (includes Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury & Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with a Mario Joy-Con Wheel)
Included in the base Mario Red & Blue Edition is a blue Joy-Con grip that you can attach your pair of Red Joy-Cons too, along with a matching red Switch dock and system livery to boot - with a Red & Blue reversible carrying case and screen protector for the console having Mario iconography embellished on each side.
Though the console itself isn’t completely red, as the kickstand has kept the default black colour. Hopefully though, this will start the trend of coloured switch systems! Atomic Purple anybody?
Pre-orders are open on the Nintendo Store website and is set to be released on the 12th of February 2021.
