Nintendo has announced exclusive bundles set to release on October 6, 2023, ahead of the holiday season.

Back again is the Nintendo Switch bundle for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and two new designs for the Nintendo Switch Lite, inspired by Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

The Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle will come with a Nintendo Switch system featuring Neon Red and Neon Blue Joy-Con controllers, a digital download code for the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game (valued at $79.99), and a three-month membership to Nintendo Switch Online. This will be priced at $399.99 CAD.

Nintendo hasn’t dropped the price for its Switch since the latter’s launch, and the best time to get one is with this bundle as you get Mario Kart 8 Deluxe included.

For Animal Crossing: New Horizons fans, two exclusive Nintendo Switch Lite bundles will be available:

  • Isabelle’s Aloha Edition: Available exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart, this bundle offers a coral-coloured system, embellished with a leaf design and a white leaf motif.
  • Timmy & Tommy’s Aloha Edition: Exclusively at Walmart, this turquoise-coloured system carries a leaf design and a white leaf motif.
