Super Mario Maker 2 has arrived, and players who wish to make the most out of the game may be interested in picking up the Limited Edition bundle. This limited-time offering includes the base game as well as a subscription to the Nintendo Switch Online service, plus a couple of additional goodies depending on where the bundle is purchased. Read on to learn more about everything included with the Super Mario Maker 2 Limited Edition bundle.
Super Mario Maker 2 Limited Edition for Nintendo Switch
In North America, the limited-time Super Mario Maker 2 bundle is the Super Mario Maker 2 + Nintendo Switch Online bundle. This collection is occasionally mislabeled as the Limited Edition bundle on websites like Amazon, but the two versions are distinct. That's because the North American bundle only includes one specific bonus: A 12-month membership to Nintendo Switch Online.
The actual Limited Edition includes much more: Players in Europe and Japan are able to order a Super Mario Maker 2 Limited Edition bundle that includes a SteelBook case, a drawing pad, a pencil and sharpener, and a Super Mario Maker 2 themed Nintendo Switch stylus. All of that is on top of the bonus 12-month Switch Online membership.
So while North American players can buy a limited edition version of Super Mario Maker 2, it will only include a 12-month membership to Nintendo Switch Online. Even at the manufacturer's suggested retail price of $70 it's a good deal, as Nintendo's online service provides access to loads of classic NES games, not to mention online play in other first-party titles.
Still, players in other global territories will be able to scoop up the proper Limited Edition and enjoy several added goodies like the drawing pad and Mario Maker-themed Switch stylus. North American fans who really want the exclusive goodies may be able to import the bundle, but we haven't heard whether or not Nintendo plans to bring the version with added bonuses to the West.
The Super Mario Maker 2 Limited Edition bundle includes 12 months of Nintendo Switch Online membership, at least in North America. Switch players in other territories will also get extra bonuses like a SteelBook case and the Super Mario Maker 2-themed stylus.
