Nintendo Switch's New Bundle Packs In Two Games, But Only At One US Store
Get two party games for the price of one.
If you haven't picked up a Nintendo Switch yet, a new bundle offers a pretty good deal to get you started. The Walmart-exclusive set includes the console along with Mario Tennis Aces and 1-2-Switch for $360. Since both games are still regularly priced at $60, the bundle essentially includes one for free.
Mario Tennis Aces is a pretty well-regarded arcade tennis game, despite some initial balance issues that have since been addressed. In GameSpot's Mario Tennis Aces review, Justin Clark wrote, "I still crave the satisfying thwack from a Power Shot, mentally replay matches and imagine how I might do things differently given a bit more focus and know-how. Mario Tennis Aces does what this series has done best, and for the most part, improves what it's rarely gotten right prior."
1-2-Switch received a more middling reception. As a Switch launch game, it seemed mostly a tool to show off the new tech with a variety of somewhat inventive but short mini-games. It was among the top-selling Switch games so far, but the lack of depth meant the games didn't have much longevity.
The bundle will be available at Walmart locations starting on September 5. Both games are included as download codes, so you may want to look into expanding your space with an SD card. For more discounts, check out this week's best Eshop deals on Nintendo Switch.
