From today until Saturday 31st December 2022 (or whilst stocks last), the My Nintendo Store is running a limited-time promotion in the United Kingdom.
Those that purchase a Nintendo Switch OLED Model – White (£309.99) or Nintendo Switch OLED Model – Neon Red/Neon Blue (£309.99) will be able to receive Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit – Mario Set (£99.99), Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit – Luigi Set (£99.99) or The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD (£49.99) for free.
This is the latest Nintendo Switch hardware revision that comes packed with a “vibrant” 7-inch OLED screen, a wide adjustable stand, a dock with a wired LAN port, 64 GB of internal storage and enhanced audio. It has “a similar overall size to the Nintendo Switch console, but with a larger, vibrant 7-inch OLED screen with vivid colours and high contrast.”
You can also use the console’s “wide adjustable stand” when playing in Tabletop mode, the “onboard speakers with enhanced audio for handheld and tabletop play,” and all previously released Joy-Con controllers are compatible.
We enjoyed our time with Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, concluding in our review: “Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is undeniably impressive in its execution at combining Augmented Reality and Nintendo’s popular franchise. There’s a sense of magic to creating your track in the real world and watching as it comes to life on the Switch.”
We were similarly impressed with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, writing: “To this day, there’s still nothing else quite like it – from the strategic swordplay to Nintendo’s unrelentingly inventive puzzle design – and while it excels in its playful experimentation, the game represents a stepping stone to where the series would lead in the future as much as it delivers an origin story that allows you to discover the secrets of the past.”
