Just in time for the holiday season
To close out its Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced a Super Mario Odyssey Switch Bundle. The package includes a download code for the game, Mario-themed red Joy-Con controllers, and a special carrying case. It will hit store shelves on Oct. 27th, the same day the game launches, for $379.99

Earlier this week Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime talked about Nintendo’s struggles to get enough Switch consoles in stores for the holiday season. That could mean this bundles will be hard to find, and unfortunately there’s no official word on preorders as of now.
Additionally, the Super Mario Odyssey amiibo will launch the same day. Each will unlock either Mario, Peach, or Bowser’s wedding outfit as well as offering some gameplay boosts. Mario’s amiibo will offer temporary invincibility, Peach gives a life-up heart, and Bowser reveals regional coin locations.
