GAME has started to accept pre-orders for the newly revealed Nintendo Switch Mario Red and Blue Edition bundle.

Priced at £349.99, the specialist retailer has chosen to bundle the limited edition console with a physical copy of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, which bought standalone would set you back £49.99. You can pre-order that bundle here.

The bad news is that you will have to pay for delivery. There are three options in DPD Tracked Next Working Day (£9.99), Royal Mail Tracked 48 Signed (£9.99) or Royal Mail Tracked 24 Signed (£14.99), bumping up the base price even further.

If you missed it earlier, the Nintendo Switch Mario Red and Blue Edition bundle has a “distinct red-and-blue colour scheme in honour of Mario’s iconic outfit.”

It comes with red Joy-Con controllers with blue straps, a blue Joy-Con grip, a red Nintendo Switch dock and a red Nintendo Switch system – marking the first time that the portable home console has been released in a new colour.

Those that pick the bundle up with also receive a stylised Mario Red and Blue Edition Carrying Case and a screen protector “to help protect the Nintendo Switch system when travelling through Warp Pipes or anywhere else life’s adventures may lead.”
