The first is a Nintendo Switch system with the hit game as a full game download at a suggested retail price of only $299.99. That’s basically like getting a free game (which is a $60 value) with your purchase of Nintendo Switch! And to make driving in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe feel even more realistic, Nintendo is also offering a set of two white Joy-Con Wheel accessories at a suggested retail price of $14.99. Playing with the Joy-Con Wheel is as simple as placing a Joy-Con controller inside and turning the wheel left and right. And since Nintendo Switch comes with two Joy-Con controllers, you and another player can dive right in and start racing against each other right away.

The second bundle is a yellow-and-red Nintendo 2DS system with the game (a $40 value) pre-installed at a suggested retail price of $79.99. In the Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS game, you get to put on your powered-up creator hat as you design your very own dream 2D Super Mario themed courses to share with friends and family. Using a variety of different items, obstacles and enemies from the Super Mario games, you can use intuitive touch controls and interactive tutorials to play and create a near-infinite amount of courses.

Details and participating retailers for both bundles can be found on the Nintendo Holiday Gift Guide at https://happyholidays.nintendo.com/deals/. The Black Friday deals are also highlighted in a new video starring Luigi, which can be viewed by visiting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOJgr4Ic9pM&feature=youtu.be.
