A couple of years ago when Mario Kart 8 was launched, unsurprisingly there was a Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundle as well. This means that should Nintendo launch a bundle for the Nintendo Switch, it would hardly come as a surprise. Turns out that’s pretty much what Nintendo did, or at least that’s what they plan to do.
According to a recent post on Reddit (via IGN), it seems that the packaging for the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Switch bundle has been revealed. There’s really nothing to see here since this is just the console bundled with a copy of the game. However what’s notable is the fact that this was spotted on the Russian Nintendo Shop which has since been pulled.
The listing allegedly gives it a release date for the 28th of April which is when the game will be released, so we guess it makes sense for the bundle to be released as well. However given that Nintendo has yet to officially confirm the bundle, there’s a chance that it might be limited to Russia, although we’re hoping that it will be available worldwide.
In any case given how well-received the previous Mario Kart was, there’s a good chance that this version will be even better, especially when you consider the fact that the Switch is portable and how it allows gamers to play Mario Kart with friends while on the go.
