Nintendo of America is set to launch a new Nintendo Switch bundle in retail stores nationwide next week, with a $35 eShop code included.

Set to be available for the console's standard suggested retail price of $299.99, this bundle is essentially giving you $35 to spend on any game you like. We often see bundles like this come with specific games - like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe or Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, for example - but the option to spend your cash on any you game you like is a nice touch.

Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, has shared the following in a press release:

“We wanted to make it easier for consumers to purchase their first game after picking up a new Nintendo Switch system. New Nintendo Switch owners can explore Nintendo eShop and use the bonus $35 credit toward the purchase of a game that’s perfect for them.”
