New Mario-Themed Nintendo Switch Revealed

There's a new Nintendo Switch about to hit the market, and this one is wearing Mario's distinctive color palette.

The Nintendo Switch is one of the most successful consoles of all time. Even today, the Switch is outselling the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, though this could very well be due to stock levels being low for both next-gen units.

Now, there's another special Nintendo Switch about to release, and this one pays tribute to the company's greatest mascot. With a unique red and blue design, the Mario-themed Nintendo Switch is a standout piece in the living room of any gamer.

Mario Red & Blue Edition Nintendo Switch Design

The Mario Red & Blue Edition Nintendo Switch, Joy-Cons, and Dock itself are all completely red, meaning you're not losing track of them anytime soon. Remarkably, the Nintendo Switch system itself also adopts the red color palette.

This is the first time that a Switch console has also changed color to match a theme. That fact alone is sure to ensure demand for the collector's item skyrockets.

The device also comes packed with 2 blue Joy-Con Controller Straps, to give your gaming some contrasting color. The official Joy-Con Grip is also blue, giving the console a real Mario feel.

Anyone who purchases the Mario Red & Blue Edition Nintendo Switch will also get an included Carrying Case. This unique design features a red and blue side, just like the console itself.

And on the sides, gamers are treated to a Mario-inspired design, complete with images of the gaming legend's iconic cap/mustache, glove, and dungarees.

How to Buy the Mario Red & Blue Edition Nintendo Switch

If this Nintendo Switch is something you just have to own, you won't have to wait long. The Mario Red & Blue Edition Nintendo Switch is launching on February 12, for a retail price of $299.99.

The device should be available from a variety of major retailers and is already on the Nintendo website. Be sure to be quick on the draw though, as PS5 and Xbox Series X scalpers are being a real pain recently.

This new announcement comes as part of Nintendo's recent unveiling of Super Mario 3D World and Bowser's Fury. The upcoming Nintendo Switch title breathes new life into the popular Wii U title, and give it some bonus content to boot.

And this isn't even the only exciting Switch news out recently, as the official Nintendo Switch Pro name may have just been revealed. Thankfully, Nintendo is also implementing some new rules with the aim of tackling eShop spam.
