Super Mario Odyssey’s release is just over a month away, and the game is almost certainly going to be one of the holiday’s most desirable releases. Couple that with the breakaway success of Nintendo’s hard-t0-find Switch console/handheld hybrid, and you have a recipe that is pretty much guaranteed to print money for Nintendo this holiday season.

That said, it’s no surprise that Nintendo today announced during their Nintendo Direct broadcast that a Super Mario Odyssey Switch bundle will be made available alongside the game’s October 27 release. This bundle will include a Nintendo Switch console, two Super Mario Odyssey Joy-Con controllers, and a Super Mario Odyssey carrying case. Sadly, rather than including a physical copy of Super Mario Odyssey in the bundle, Nintendo is opting to package each bundle with a redeemable voucher to download a digital copy of the game from the Nintendo Switch eShop.
Ah well, them’s the breaks.
So, will you be trying to hunt down one of these bundles when they release on October 27? Let us know in the comments below.
