The new Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury trailer wasn’t the only thing Nintendo had in store for us today! As revealed via its press site, a new Mario Red & Blue-themed Nintendo Switch has also been confirmed.

Check out a key image below alongside the press release:



Nintendo also unveiled the new Nintendo Switch – Mario Red & Blue Edition system, with a distinct red-and-blue color scheme in honor of Mario’s iconic outfit. This special edition hardware will be available through select retailers beginning Feb. 12 at a suggested retail price of $299.99. It includes red Joy-Con controllers with blue straps, a blue Joy-Con grip, a red Nintendo Switch dock and a red Nintendo Switch system – making this the first time the Nintendo Switch system itself will be available in a new color! It will also include a stylized Mario Red & Blue Edition Carrying Case and a screen protector to help protect the Nintendo Switch system when traveling through Warp Pipes or anywhere else life’s adventures may lead.


That’s right, you’ll be able to grab this new Nintendo Switch edition next month on February 12th – the same release date as Super Mario 3D World’s port!
