GameStop has launched two new bundles for the Nintendo Switch, and gamers who have not yet been able to purchase the hybrid console should grab them before stocks run out.
The massive demand for Nintendo's latest console has made it very difficult for some customers to purchase it, often requiring lengthy waiting times for reservations or queuing up in long lines. That would not be a problem with these GameStop bundles, as customers can purchase them online and can get them in a couple of weeks.
Two New Nintendo Switch Bundles At GameStop
GameStop has rolled out several Nintendo Switch bundles over the past few weeks, with two of these bundles only recently selling out.
The video game retailer has now replaced the sold out bundles with two new ones that will both ship out by June 2.
The first bundle is the Nintendo Switch Neon Mario Kart Race and Protect Bundle, which is being sold for $472.99. The bundle includes the Nintendo Switch console with neon red and blue Joy-Con and a physical copy of the well-reviewed Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Customers will also receive two pieces of the Nintendo Switch Racing Wheel and a Super Mario-themed console case.
The bundle also comes with digital copies of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, which is a full and complete version of the 8-bit adventure game; paper cutting game Snipperclips; and action-strategy game Has-Been Heroes.
The second bundle is the Nintendo Switch Gray Zelda Sheikah Eye Starter Kit Bundle, which is being sold at a slightly higher price of $479.99. The bundle includes the Nintendo Switch console with gray Joy-Cons, a physical copy of the critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and the game's $19.99 Expansion Pass for upcoming additional content.
The bundle comes with the same three digital games as the first one, but instead of the racing wheels and Super Mario-themed console case, it includes the Nintendo Switch Starter Kit - Zelda Sheikah Eye Edition. The starter kit includes a Zelda-themed case, Joy-Con armor guards, thumb caps, earbuds, a screen protector, and a cleaning cloth.
For both bundles, GameStop will only ship within the United States.
Another Nintendo Switch Bundle Still Available
There is another Nintendo Switch bundle available at GameStop that will ship by May 26, but its stocks are likely already limited.
The Nintendo Switch Gray Joy-Con Bundle, sold for $484.99, is similar to the Nintendo Switch Neon Mario Kart Race and Protect Bundle but with a few differences. The included Joy-Cons are colored gray, and instead of the Super Mario-themed case, customers will receive a Nintendo Switch Pro controller. The bundle similarly includes a physical copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the two racing wheels, and the three digital games.
Nintendo Switch Games
While the bundles offered by GameStop are about $200 more than buying just the Nintendo Switch, which has a price tag of $299, they come with games and accessories that players will likely buy for the new console.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe play a significant role in the early success of the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo will look to release even more amazing games for the hybrid console, with Super Mario Odyssey planned as the heart of the company's presence in the upcoming E3 2017.
