Nintendo just released a very special edition of the Nintendo Switch. Themed after its iconic plumber, the demand for the Nintendo Switch Mario Red & Blue bundle has been overwhelming. Considering that getting your mitts on even a regular switch has been tricky over the last twelve months, it’s hardly surprising that a limited edition console has generated substantial interest.

The Nintendo Switch Mario & Blue Edition launched on February 12 and was an instant sell-out, at this point, it’s shaping up to be something of a collector’s item that stands alongside the PS5 and Xbox Series X as gaming products we want but can’t seem to buy. 

However, Gamestop is currently taking fresh orders after restocking the system earlier today. We don't anticipate these units will stick around for long, so if you're wanting one you better hop on over there fast and grab one. 

The current stock situation is prone to rapidly change, so below you’ll find all the links you need in case fresh stock drops and we’ll update this article if we get wind of any more retailers taking orders. 

If the bright colors of this limited edition aren’t to your liking, check out our guide for where to buy the Nintendo Switch for help bagging a standard console.

What is the Nintendo Switch Mario Red & Blue Edition

Released to commemorate the launch of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, the Nintendo Switch Mario Red & Blue Edition is pretty much exactly what it sounds like — a limited red and blue version of Nintendo’s extremely popular home console-handheld hybrid. 

It’s definitely more red than blue, as both joy-con controllers, the dock, and the Switch console itself are all colored in a deep shade of red — however, the included controller grip and wrist straps make up the blue part of the equation. 

The bundle also comes with a Mario-themed carrying case, which is perfect for when you want to take your switch out and about and helps give this package some extra value.

Unfortunately, the console doesn’t come with any Mario games, so if you want to play Super Mario 3D World + Bower’s Fury or any of the other great Mario titles on the Switch, such as Mario Odyssey or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, you’ll have to pick them up separately.
