12 Comments

Mario Day (March 10) is officially here, but the celebration has been going on all week long, bringing a slew of deals on Mario-related Switch games and more. But in addition to all the Mario Day sales, Nintendo has also restocked the special-edition Mario Red & Blue Switch console. The Mario Red & Blue edition Switch has come back into stock at multiple stores, including Walmart and Best Buy. The $300 Switch bundle includes the Mario-themed console as well as a carrying case and screen protector, so you're essentially getting those two accessories for free. If you're looking to buy a Nintendo Switch, you can check availability for the new Mario-edition Switch below.

The Mario Red & Blue Edition Switch console is the first Switch version that's a color other than gray. While we've seen different colored docks and Joy-Cons, the Switch itself has always been gray, though some limited editions have featured a special pattern on the back (it's unclear if the Mario edition will). The new Mario Switch is bright red, as is the dock. The Joy-Cons are the same shade of red with blue grips that imitate the plumber's iconic suspenders. This Nintendo Switch console bundle comes with a Super Mario-themed carrying case and screen protector as well. Note that it does not come with a copy of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury--you'll have to buy that game separately.

This is the latest limited-edition Switch console from Nintendo, which released a tropical-themed Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nintendo Switch last year as well as a Fortnite Switch bundle, both of which featured a special design and new Joy-Con colors. There was also a Super Mario Odyssey-edition Nintendo Switch console that had red Joy-Cons and came with a copy of the game and a carrying case, but the rest of its design was plain gray.

Other places to buy a Nintendo Switch

If you're unable to buy the Mario-edition Switch, you're not out of luck if you're still hoping to buy Nintendo's hybrid console. We're continuing to track where to buy a Nintendo Switch and have rounded up the best places to buy its standard edition, other limited editions, and the Switch Lite below. The standard edition with red and blue Joy-Cons as well as the Switch Lite remain easiest to find in stock. We've indicated whether each system is available at list price below, but note that this info is subject to change based on how quickly the Switch can sell out.
