Challenge friends to the zaniest racing experience in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe! Nintendo’s new Mario Kart bundle includes a digital download for the game, a Nintendo Switch system with blue and red Joy-Con controllers, and a three-month individual membership to Nintendo Switch Online. The online service will let you get straight to gaming with your best buds, even when they’re not in the same place. The new bundle will launch this Oct. 6.

If you want even more tracks to race, you can pick up the Booster Course Pass DLC and get 48 additional courses to race on, which will be released in six waves throughout the rest of the year. The DLC is available now in the Nintendo eShop, My Nintendo Store, and at select retailers.

The Nintendo Switch Lite system is great for those who don’t mind playing their games exclusively handheld. It’s perfect for long car rides and gaming on the go. Nintendo is releasing two new bundles for the Lite, both featuring everyone’s favorite island animals. The Nintendo Switch Lite Isabelle’s Aloha Edition and Nintendo Switch Lite Timmy & Tommy’s Aloha Edition both include a digital version of Animal Crossing: New Horizons and feature Switch Lites decorated with leaf designs. The Isabelle’s Aloha Edition will be available exclusively at Target and the Timmy & Tommy’s Aloha Edition at Walmart, both releasing on Oct. 6.

Have the happiest holiday season yet with these new deals. With digital versions of favorite games included, the full Nintendo Switch experience is just a bundle away!
