The first game to be bundled with the Nintendo Switch will be Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The Russian Nintendo website leaked the bundle, showing off both Neon and Gray Joy-Con SKUs.

The box art for the bundle appears to be a mock-up, as there are some glaring problems like the cover for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe popping out and gray Joy-Cons on the front while Neon Joy-Cons sit on the side of the box.

Regardless, at least this gives Nintendo the opportunity to make use of the additional game space they have in the Switch retail boxes for these kinds of bundles.

We don’t have a release date yet, but we have to assume the bundles will launch alongside Mario Kart 8’s release later this month. There’s a Nintendo Direct scheduled for this evening, so expect further details then.
