The Mario Kart Switch Bundle Is $500 Michael Kwan April 18, 2017 News As wildly successful as the Nintendo Switch has been thus far, the one big thing holding it back is the lack of titles. Sure, it’s great if you’re a big fan of Zelda, but what about the rest of us? Help is on the way and Gamestop has prepared a new bundle for pre-order to celebrate. Let’s-a-go with the Mario Kart Switch bundle! Naturally, the Mario Kart Switch bundle will include the soon-to-be-released Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in the box. Considering that the core console starts at $300, I figured that the simple bundle would be about $350. And I’d be wrong, because Gamestop wants you to buy a bunch of other stuff too. Also included in the bundle, alongside the console and Mario Kart, are a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a code to get the Breath of the Wild expansion pass DLC, and a 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC memory card. You’ll want that last bit if you plan on downloading any games at all to your Nintendo Switch. I don’t know about you, but $500 still sounds pretty expensive to me considering what the extra $200 gets you. But hey, it’s a good way to get started with the Switch, right? Except you’ll probably want to invest in a bunch of other accessories (like the Switch Pro Controller) too. The Mario Kart Switch bundle is available for pre-order now with shipments expected by May 5. If you need more Nintendo goodness, you may want to wait for Super Smash Bros, whenever that happens.
