Video game fans on the Nintendo Switch may have another reason to head to the store for shopping.
On Thursday, the video game giant announced it would launch a Nintendo Switch kit with the popular Mario kart 8 Deluxe racing game on Black Friday.
The kit will cost $ 299.99, the same as the standard Switch model.
Nintendo said it will offer several games at a discounted price of $ 39.99 for Black Friday, including:
- “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild”
- “Super Mario Odyssey”
- “Super Mario Party”
- “Splatoon 2”
- “Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze”
- “Mario Tennis Aces”
- “Kirby Star Allies”
The video game publisher is out in the second quarter, reporting a net profit of $ 420 million. During the quarter, Nintendo said it sold 5 million Switch consoles, including 2 million-Switch Lite, a lighter and more portable version of the device.
“All of our results were really driven by our ability to offer a wide variety of options for everyone,” Doug Bowser, President of Nintendo of America, said in an interview with USA TODAY.
Despite competition from Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4, according to the NPD Group, the Switch is the best-selling hardware platform of 2019. Nintendo has sold more than 41 Switch consoles worldwide, including 15 million in North America.
