RUMOR: A European Switch bundle could include Super Mario Bros. Movie tie-in
Including Super Mario Odyssey and a mystery item
We’re less than two months away from the release of The Super Mario Bros. Movie in theaters! According to Video Games Chronicle, a new rumor indicates that there could be a Switch bundle coming to promote the movie’s release. This rumor comes from Twitter user @billbil_kun, who seems to have provided reliable information from leaks in the past. Still, this is a rumor, so nothing is certain until Nintendo provides confirmation.
According to the leak, Nintendo will launch a new Switch bundle in Europe on March 10, 2023 (Mario Day). This bundle would include the following:
- A Switch console with red JoyCons (previously released in 2022)
- A digital code for Super Mario Odyssey
- Something else somehow related to the Super Mario Bros. Movie
What that movie tie-in could be, we don’t know. Perhaps a toy, poster, or other piece of merch, or perhaps a digital bonus of some kind? We also don’t know if this bundle would be appearing in other parts of the world.
If the bundle is real, we shouldn’t have to wait long to hear about it. Stay tuned for more info, and the release of the movie on April 7, 2023.
I can’t see it being anything substantial other than a piece of movie promotional material like a small poster or something.
It’s not going to be anything Movie-Game related.
Best case - it’s a DLC costume for Odyssey.
I can't wait for the Chris Pratt skin in Mario Kart
