Nintendo has confirmed that the new special edition Nintendo Switch system will be available to buy from select retailers only for $299.99. What the new console comes with is the usual fanfare: red Joy-Con controllers with blue straps attached, a blue Joy-Con grip, a Nintendo Switch dock that is also Mario-red, as well as the red matching Switch system itself. Also included is a Mario-fashioned Red & Blue Edition carrying case alongside a screen protector for those that really like to travel hard with their console.
The new system comes just after the full reveal of 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
While the red and blue colors absolutely make sense, it would have been cool to see a variant with a bit more stylization. The red Joy-Cons are not that far different from the standard ones already available aside from the stripe of blue. Perhaps a green color in there to represent Luigi would have been cool, though then you run the risk of just looking like a Christmas-y console. Still, it’s a nifty option for those looking to score a new system or to buy as a gift. You can learn more about the Nintendo Switch system yourself right here.
