Nintendo is bringing the holiday gifts early this year. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will be bundled with Nintendo Switch consoles starting November 28 on Black Friday at select retailers. The game will be included as a download code which is obtained after purchasing a Switch console. Furthermore, the bundle will be available for $299.99, which is what a Nintendo Switch console normally costs on its own. That means you can purchase a Switch console and receive a game at no extra charge.
However, it is really important to note that the Nintendo Switch included in the bundle is an older model of the console. This older model, labeled as HAC-001, has a shorter battery life compared to later versions of the Switch.
