Nintendo unveiled a new Switch bundle today featuring Mario Tennis Aces. Priced at $360 (USD), the Mario Tennis Aces bundle for Nintendo Switch will be exclusively available at Walmart starting September 5. Included in the bundle is a Nintendo Switch with neon blue and red Joy-Con controllers, a Joy-Con Grip, a copy of Mario Tennis Aces, and a full game download of 1-2 Switch.
The bundle’s multiplayer-focused likely comes as a way for Nintendo to motivate new Switch owners to sign up for Nintendo’s paid online service, which is also scheduled to launch in late September. Membership for Nintendo’s online service include the following three tiers and price points:
- One Month - $3.99
- Three Months - $7.99
- One Year - $19.99

While it’d be nice if the Mario Tennis Aces bundle also included a trial of Nintendo’s online subscription service, the bundle itself is nevertheless a solid bargain. Right now, the Nintendo Switch console retails for around $300 on Amazon, while Mario Tennis Aces is full price at $59.99. Furthermore, the bundle also includes 1-2 Switch which released alongside the Nintendo Switch back in March of 2017.
At the time, many buyers felt like 1-2 Switch should have come bundled with the console. While late, it’s possible that Nintendo may consider including 1-2 Switch in bundles like the Mario Tennis Aces bundle moving forward.
