Customers are finding some random things in their Switch game purchases

What's in the box?

When you head to a big-name game retailer, you expect to get the item you purchase. For example, when you buy Pokemon Sword and Shield, you're thinking you'll open up the box and find the game card inside. For Reddit user Au_rai, things were a bit different. He opened up his copy of Pokemon Shield to find...two copies of the game! As far as being surprised by what's in a game box, this is definitely very high on the positive end of things!

Unfortunately for Redditor SHADOWSTRIKE1, his situation was a bit different. He bought a copy of Super Mario Party from Walmart, and found weird bits of foam inside the box. Unfortunately, it looks like people are still pulling the trick of buying a game, returning it without the game inside, and making off with the game free of charge.

Moving into the holiday season, you're probably going to be picking up multiple games for yourself or others. Make sure to grab a gift receipt to avoid any issues like the Super Mario Party one above! If the game is for you, pop the box open at the store before you leave!

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Adventure Guidebook bundle, Super Mario Odyssey Travel Guidebook bundle, and Super Mario Party Joy-Con Set seeing re-release in Japan

The bundles are back

Super Mario Party's source code contains references to DLC, as well as an unused board (UPDATE)

A look at what could have been

UPDATE - The dataminers behind this discovery have admitted to a mistake. It turns out they were looking at source code for Super Mario Party and Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle at the same time, and got the code between the two games mixed up. The DLC mentions are for Mario + Rabbids, but the unused board does indeed come from Super Mario Party. You can find the original story below.


Many thought DLC for Super Mario Party was a lock, but nothing has been announced since the game's launch. It seems like the chance of DLC now is slimmer than ever, but dataminers have found evidence that points to DLC being in Nintendo's plans at some point during development.

The game's code makes mention of both ‘SeasonPass’ and ‘DLC1,’ which are hard to read as anything other than post-launch content plans. Why these never came to fruition is unknown, but it turns out Nintendo had some other plans that were scrapped as well.

Among the source code was data for an unused city themed board. This could have been a test board at some point, or a planned board that never made it past the initial concept stage.
