Nintendo Switch Mario Red And Blue Edition Arrives Next Month
Nintendo has spent the last several months celebrating the 35th anniversary of the Super Mario franchise, with a number of special releases and events centered on the Mushroom Kingdom’s resident hero. The likes of the Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection, battle royale title Super Mario Bros. 35, and the decidedly kaiju-adjacent re-release of Super Mario 3D World have already paid tribute to the mustachioed gaming icon, and it appears Big N is preparing to go even further with the release of a new special edition console.
Sporting the vibrant red and blue color scheme of Super Mario himself, Nintendo recently announced a new Nintendo Switch variant called the Mario Red & Blue Edition. Going for the price of $299.99 USD, the unique console variant features a matching red dock and Joy-Cons and is complemented with a pair of blue controller grips and wrist straps. In addition, this particular package also comes with a Mario-themed carrying case as well as a nifty screen protector for good measure.

As of now, the Nintendo Switch Mario Red & Blue Edition currently scheduled to roll out to retailers and the official Nintendo website on February 12th. The reveal of a new Switch not only marks the occasion of Mario’s 35th anniversary but it’s also only the second console color variant outside the original grey, with the only other being a special design based on Animal Crossing. That’s not to say the Switch is a stranger to hues, as there’s a variety of Joy-Con colors to consider as well as the lovely pastel options of the Nintendo Switch Lite.
