In what one can assume is to be revealed during the Nintendo Direct later today, there is apparently a Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Nintendo Switch bundle on the way.
A No Brainer
Apparently Nintendo has had an uptick in available stock for the Nintendo Switch. And it makes perfect sense that they would bundle Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in with a system to get maximum sales. The Mario Kart series has long been one of Nintendo’s best selling franchises.
The leak comes to us courtesy the official Russian Nintendo website. So while the below image did in fact come from Nintendo, it’s entirely possible that it’s a bundle only planned for that specific reason. But it’s hard to fathom that they would limit it to just that area seeing as how it’s sure to sell quite well globally.
The Nintendo Direct planned for 3:00 p.m. Pacific, 6:00 p.m. Eastern is said to focus primarily on Splatoon 2 and ARMS. However, with news of this Mario Kart 8 Deluxe existing, Nintendo will surely spend a few minutes focusing on that as well. We’ll know one way or another in just a few more hours.
