Rumor: Mario Kart 8 Nintendo Switch Bundle Coming

A leaked listing on Nintendo’s Russian website seemingly revealed the first official Nintendo Switch bundle, adding in a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with the console.

While the images (via Reddit) shown on the site seem to be mockups, the fact that it is Nintendo’s official website for the region gives credence to the rumor.

If the bundle is real, we should find out more during today’s Nintendo Direct at 3 PM Pacific / 6 PM Eastern.

    They’d be stupid to not do a Mario Kart bundle.

    You’d think they’d give away that 1 2 Switch game as a freebie at launch… Well, nice to see if this bundle does exist. MK8 was great, but I don’t really feel like buying it again.

  • Curious if they’ll do any special print/colored switches at some point. I may hold out buying one if that’s the case.
