Nintendo Offers Switch Bundle Deals for Mario Day
The upcoming Super Mario Bros. movie is giving fans another reason to celebrate Mario Day, which falls on March 10. Nintendo has announced new deals on its website and at select retailers, offering free copies of Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, or New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe with the purchase of a Mario Switch bundle. The set also comes with Mario movie-themed stickers.
eShop Sale Brings Discounts on Popular Mario Titles
The Mario Day eShop sale is another highlight for Nintendo fans, offering discounts on select Mario titles. Nintendo’s first-party games don’t receive discounts as frequently as others, so it’s worth taking note of the sale dates. Mario Party Superstars, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Yoshi’s Crafted World, and Luigi’s Mansion 3 are among the games discounted from March 10 to 23. The sale continues from March 24 to April 7 with discounts on Super Mario Odyssey, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Super Mario Maker 2, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
Some brick-and-mortar retailers are offering discounts
Physical game collectors can take advantage of the sale as well. Some brick-and-mortar retailers are offering $20 off Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Maker 2, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, and Mario Party Superstars, all of which usually run at $60. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, which costs $100, will be $40 off from March 5 to 11.
