Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Switch bundle will only be sold in Russia

Posted on April 13, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

News about a new Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Switch bundle emerged yesterday. Listings were found on Nintendo’s store, revealing that the package will be offered alongside the game later this month.

Nintendo has since followed up with GameSpot. According to a representative, “The bundle is exclusive to Russia and there are no plans to bring it to other countries at this time”.

A Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Switch bundle for other regions may happen at some point. For now though, the only way to obtain this package is by being located in Russia.

    That’s a shame, I do hope we’ll see a bundled game soon, I’ve got a feeling that Splatoon 2 has a good shot at getting bundled, if not Mario Odyssey.

      Inb4 MK8Deluxe gets an 18+ rating in Russia due to promoting homosexuality lol

    Strange… I guess Nintendo did their statistical analyses and found the bundle wouldn’t be very popular in other territories.. for now anyway

      I don’t think it’s that, but more the opposite. It’d be very popular, but I think they see there’s no point yet since the switch is still selling like hot cakes without anything bundled in. So releasing this isn’t necessary quite yet

    Hell yeah!

    Wouldn’t have made much sense to release a bundle when the regular package is still selling out faster than shipments arrive, I guess.

    I had no idea that Nintendo had so much interest in the Russian market though.

    BTW, the pricing is the same as the Switch without any game?

    Seems like Russia hacked Nintendo’s hardware bundles.

      I’ve made $84,000 so far this year working online and I’m a full time student. I’m using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve made such great money. It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it. The potential with this is endless. Here’s what I do
