I know you can get console and game cheaper if bought separately. But the RRP seems decent for limited edition console. May not appeal to everyone here but could be helpful to collectors

Even the game isn't physical.


It's insulting when Nintendo do this. Also with no other "freebies" in the box I think their taking the mick!
Laziest Ltd Ed ever if it's just that both cons are red. Not even a mario pic on the cradle?

​Eh? Switch has been £255 this week and Mario Odyssey can be had for under £40. You're paying £25 more for some box art, red joy-cons and a digital download

What's limited edition about it?
I don't get the collectors angle - there's nothing really collectable apart from the box art?
The controllers are a different colour right?
The joy cons are red not neon red

Totally agree with you guys but it seems limited edition consoles can hold it's value more than normal console and can be resale at higher price if it's difficult to get hold off after it's released....
It's £10 cheaper than on the Nintendo website so hot.
In other regions you get a mario carry case included in the bundle.
In the UK you can buy the case septately for £19.99.

If it had some sort of Mario designs on the console and controllers then it would have been worth it. They did it for Monster Hunter in Japan.

I think I agree there! I was nearly enticed by it when I first saw it but then I looked at the product carefully and thought:

'So the Joy-Cons are 'red';they're OK. But you don't get the physical copy of the came so out of the 32GB that the console comes with... how much would I have left to use?'

Also, I'm sure Nintendo will end up releasing the red Joy-Cons separately eventually.

Meant to be something like a 5.7GB install if memory serves.
Nah, poor. Where's the case as well?
Crap bundle, decent price, reluctant heat
Nihir... I know that you normally outline some really good deals on here. But I can't condone this - if only because the Switch and its entire ecosystem screams "rip off". £300+ for a "current" system and game, that's already showing signs of being behind the times, and I can't see how anyone can see it as being a good deal (apart from Nintendo fans who rather moronically end up cheering anything with a Nintendo logo on it).
Nintendo cashing in again screwing it's fanbase

So it may be better to get this from an EU Amazon site if you want the case.
This is so not worth it.

£40 more than the RRP of a base console for a digital game with no resale value. Whilst it may be true that collectors editions in general hold value better that will not be true for versions with digital content (which has zero resale value)
Just buy a base console and Mario separately, at least the physical Mario game will have resale value.


So I'm going to have to vote cold.
I'm guessing there's loads of people who have been waiting for Mario Odyssey to be released before buying the Switch. So this will clearly be of interest to them.

In my opinion though Nintendo make rubbish Limited/Special edition consoles now compared to the N64 and Gameboys etc.

I'm not certain if the discount codes are still working but £254.99 for a Switch without red joy-cons. About £37 for Mario Odyssey. With what is roughly £30 saving you can almost buy a Pro controller which is a must if using it in dock mode.
I have to echo the sentiments above. I'm sad that Nintendo made a console of such great potential, then proceeded to shaft their loyal fan base left, right and centre. They had a chance to really come back with a bang, but with pricing like this will fizzle out with a whimper...
People can be such cynics...

Yes, some will look on the fact a digital only game will have no resale value, but this is Mario Odyssey we are talking about here, which maniac is already considering selling said game? Some games are keepers - I'm sure this will be one of them. Besides, who bought Sonic Mania without a thought for resale value...me for one. Also load times tend to be generally better installed rather than running from the cartridge, just a consideration.

You must be joking, right?

"Shaft their loyal base" is the overstatement of the decade. What are we talking here, no physical copy, not literally 'limited edition'...ok, but we are still getting what is a neat new Nintendo console and potential GOTY bundled in a package which would be cheaper buying each separately. Some may see that as a plus.

Not voted, I really wanted a bundle with Mario Odyssey but got the amazon switch deal instead after seeing how lazy the bundle was and that the game wasn't physical. I'd rather save the £25 or so and have a physical copy

This sort of bundle will be around the £250-£270 mark pre Xmas, so I'd wait a couple of months.

Careful. You seriously triggered a nintendo fanboy. Now you'll have to look behind your back for the day. Listen out for heavy mouth breathing. The halitosis should give it away when they're near.

No it really won't. They will be in shorter supply as christmas approaches. They don't need to sell them at a loss.
They are never in short supply that is merely a marketing tool to sell consoles and keep the price up, don't forget heavy competition is just around the corner from xbox and Playstation.

How so? The Xbox one x is very expensive and the people looking to buy a switch won't be persuaded to go for that and what do Sony have that isn't already out?
The Mario bundle was gonna be my jumping on point for the switch. Just gonna go the normal route now and avoid this cash grab from Nintendo!
This deal is just for the fanboy geeks, better deals are coming, I have it on good authority!

Sadly these discount codes are no longer available and there's no guarantee they'll return so as of now this is the cheapest you can get for Switch+Odyssey hence the hot vote
Honestly his has to be the most rip-off "collectors edition" item ever.
voting cold because it really is.
Cold, i mean come on, £320 for a switch. lol

​The codes only expired on Sunday. Plus it's still a couple of quid cheaper to buy a Switch and a separate physical copy of Mario Odyssey if being pedantic
Hot but this 'edition' is less special than if you were to have a Physical copy of the game. You get red Joy-Cons which is something but they don't speak Mario to me. Obviously a ploy while the console is in high demand to profit further on a digital bundle. When supply isn't an issue I expect a decent and genuinely limited release like other Nintendo products. Maybe a Pokémon edition.
