Nintendo have announced the Nintendo Switch – Mario Red & Blue Edition, inspired by the 35th Anniversary of Super Mario Bros.
As stated in the press release (which also discussed the new Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury gameplay trailer), the new Nintendo Switch is part of the Super Mario Bros. 35th Anniversary celebrations. The red and blue theme is unsurprisingly inspired by Mario’s iconic outfit.
The console’s Joy-Cons are different colors; one red with a blue strap and the other blue with a red strap. It also has a blue Joy-Con grip, carrying case, and screen protector. The Nintendo Switch – Mario Red & Blue Edition will be available at select retailers on February 12th for RRP $299.99 USD.
That release date is the same as the aforementioned Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. “We hope players enjoy pouncing their way through two great Mario adventures in Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury,” said Nintendo of America Senior VP of Sales and Marketing Nick Chavez, “with lots of feline fun to be had whether playing solo or with family and friends.”
