Nintendo Switch Neon Joy-Con + Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Game Download) + 3 Month Nintendo Switch Online Individual Membership
If you want to introduce a loved one to the magic of Nintendo Switch gaming, or just try it yourself, this bundle is a great place to start. It not only includes the best-selling console, which can accommodate a variety of video games, including roguelikes and role-playing games (like Hades and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild) and social simulation games (like Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley), but It also allows for gaming at home and on the go.
The Switch is a portable console that is small enough to fit in a backpack or bag. Once home, you can rest the Switch on its charging dock, which can be connected to a TV for a more immersive gaming experience, according to the brand. It can also be charged separately. The dock also allows for tabletop games, Nintendo says, which can be great when playing with an audience.
This bundle comes with two Joy-Con controllers for multiplayer gaming, as well as the full game download of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which lets you race and battle against friends on a variety of tracks. It also includes a three-month Nintendo Switch Online membership, which gives you access to online games, cloud saves, and classic games, making it a great value whether you choose to give it away or keep it.
