Walmart has saved an extra special Nintendo Switch bundle deal for those of you that missed out on the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. It's a bit of a stunner too. Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to present the return of the Mario Red Nintendo Switch.

Of course, the console itself is as grey as ever, but the pair of Mario Red Joy-Cons (darker than the neon red of the red/blue pairings usually seen) in the box were previously only available with the limited edition bundle that launched alongside Super Mario Odyssey. Otherwise, you had to import them as they're not on general sale in the USA.

There's no Mario game included here, but it's way cheaper than that bundle was back then. For just $299, you're getting the console, limited edition controllers, a Mario and Bowser Edition carry case and $20 of credit to spend on the Nintendo eShop.

There's no mention of the model number for the Switch, so it's difficult to ascertain if this is definitely the new version with a longer-lasting battery. But given the design layout of the box on the Walmart listing page, with an all-red background and the position of the TV in the image, we'd say this probably is the new version as it looks like the redesigned box on the newer version as opposed to the original launch model.

Today's hottest Nintendo Switch bundle

Given other stores are charging $299 for the basic Switch console on its own, we're loving the extra value here thanks to the extras and those oh so elusive Mario Red Joy-Cons in this Walmart-exclusive deal. If you want to stand out with a rare set of Switch controllers, this is a sweet bundle.

Still not happy? Sold out already? Looking for something else? Keep an eye on our guide to the best Nintendo Switch bundles for extra options. Or if you're not bothered about playing the games on your TV, maybe you'd prefer the handheld-only action offered via one of our Nintendo Switch Lite deals?
