Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Nintendo Switch Bundle Confirmed

Potential Nintendo Direct surprise spoiled?

Update: A representative from Nintendo has confirmed that the previously outed Mario Kart 8 Deluxe console bundle is indeed coming, but will only be available to those in Russia. “The bundle is exclusive to Russia and there are no plans to bring it to other countries at this time,” the rep told GameSpot[2]. Original Story:

If a reported listing by Nintendo’s official Russian online store is any indication, a Switch bundle that includes a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe[3] is on the horizon. The listing includes gray[4] or neon Joy-Con[5] options. While the page is unavailable to be viewed in some territories, reddit[6] user Lord_Daenar posted an image of the bundle:

It’s important to note that Nintendo has yet to officially announce the bundle, and its release could be limited to Russia. That said, the company is holding a Nintendo Direct later today[8]. While the focus of the Direct will be on Splatoon 2 and Arms, other titles will be discussed as well, and it’s possible we’ll hear about the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle at that time.

In the meantime, here’s a look at what to expect from today’s Nintendo Direct[9]. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe releases exclusively for Nintendo Switch[10] on April 28. For our thoughts on the original Wii U version, read IGN’s Mario Kart 8 review[11].
