Walmart's exclusive $359.99 Switch bundle includes Mario Tennis Aces and 1-2-Switch

This service ace of a deal

4

Looking to grab a Nintendo Switch of your very own? Walmart is sweetening the deal with a lucrative bundle that's coming out just in time for the holidays, which are just around the corner. Again. Already. We just went through them, and it seems like hardly any time has passed.

The $359.99 bundle includes a Nintendo Switch system with regular gray Joy-Con controllers, as well as 1-2-Switch (which should have been a pack-in in the first place rather than a standalone game) and Mario Tennis Aces. Both family-friendly games are great beginnings for any Switch collection, especially Mario Tennis Aces. We awarded it a 9/10 in our review here at Shacknews, and it's one of the best riffs on Mario Tennis the series has seen in some time.

Unfortunately, the games you receive in the bundle aren't physical copies, but digital codes you can download when you get your Switch home and set up properly. This might be a dealbreaker for anyone who isn't looking to purchase additional storage for the system. Protip: You're going to want to purchase additional storage, because you're going to very quickly amass new games at a rate you won't be able to keep up with.

If you're trying to get prepared for the holidays since they're creeping up on us a lot quicker than we thought, make sure you go ahead and hit up the deal when it begins on September 5. It's worth saving a bit to get a jumpstart on your Switch game treasure trove.

      So... you get the worst game Nintendo has made for the platform for free when buying a Switch + Mario Tennis Aces. If you could trade in a physical copy of 1+2 Switch for some credit to something else somewhere that might have been something, but I'd probably just buy the console and game separately.

        Perhaps a better way of looking at it would be you get the Switch and Aces and then 1-2 Switch for 1-2 cents.

          I guess I'm just saying it's clutter, and I'd rather not even have the code or the space used up. Maybe you could ebay the code or something.

        Yeah I would have laughed if the 1-2 Switch copy was physical, and they are just throwing them in to get rid of unsold inventory. But, didn't it sell a few million units?

        I guess I'm to blame, bought it at launch thinking the kids would enjoy it but after around 10min of playing the handful of good mini-games the novelty fell off and was never touched again. Game is bad.
