To coincide with the launch of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury on Switch next month, Nintendo has unveiled a brand new system sporting Mario's iconic colours.

The Nintendo Switch – Mario Red & Blue Edition system features a colour scheme that instantly reminds us of Mario's classic outfit. This special hardware release will launch on 12th February, the same day as 3D World, at a suggested retail price of $299.99.

It includes red Joy-Con controllers with blue straps, a blue Joy-Con grip, a red Nintendo Switch dock and a red Nintendo Switch system – making this the first time the Nintendo Switch system itself will be available in a new colour! It even comes with a stylised Mario Red & Blue Edition Carrying Case and a screen protector. Not bad at all.


We'll keep an eye out for pre-order information as and when it arrives, so keep checking back if you hope to get your hands on one. It's already been confirmed that the system will be available in both North America and Europe.

In the meantime, let us know whether or not you're a fan of the design with a comment below.
