We love it!

Ahead of the release of Super Mario Bros. 3D World + Bowser’s Fury on Switch on February 12, Nintendo has revealed a new version of the Nintendo Switch console themed after Mario.

The Nintendo Switch – Mario Red & Blue Edition will be released on the same day as 3D World + Bowser’s Fury: February 12, 2021. This special edition console bundle will include a red Nintendo Switch system, a red dock for playing games on the TV, two red Joy-Con, two blue straps (used when the Joy-Con are detached from the system), a blue Joy-Con grip, a red and blue Mario-themed carrying case, and a screen protector.

Typically, the Nintendo Switch system is black, even in previously-released special edition console bundles. For instance, the Animal Crossing: New Horizons-themed Switch system is black and has an Animal Crossing-themed pattern on the back. This Mario-themed Switch system will be the first time the Switch console itself is released in a different color (the Switch Lite has also been released in multiple colors in the past).

The Nintendo Switch – Mario Red & Blue Edition will be available at “select retailers” on February 12 for $299.99. Super Mario Bros. 3D World + Bowser’s Fury will release on the same day for $59.99. The game is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.
