The first official Switch bundle has been outed by Nintendo’s own official store in Russia.

Consumers will be able to choose between two options: one with gray Joy-Con and another with the neon colors (note that these pages may be inaccessible unless you’re located in Russia or use a proxy). Both come with a physical copy as opposed to a pre-installed version.

Nintendo may be announcing this Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle during its Nintendo Direct tonight. It’s unclear if North America will be receiving the package at this time.
