Parents looking to purchase some family-friendly Nintendo fare for the holidays may want to look at this new Switch bundle: starting on September 5, Wal-Mart will be the exclusive retailer selling a Nintendo Switch console that comes with both Mario Tennis Aces and 1-2 Switch.
Mario Tennis Aces received general praise for its tight and complex gameplay, while receiving some criticism for a lack of features and unbalanced characters—you can check out our review for the game here. Meanwhile, 1-2 Switch had a lukewarm reception, with many players wishing that the mini-game collection was bundled with the console in the first place, a la Wii Sports—through this new bundle, families won’t have this problem anymore.
Nintendo has a lot on their plate for the holiday season, with big titles like Super Mario Party, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! all releasing by the end of the year. Wal-Mart’s Mario Tennis Aces and 1-2 Switch bundle will retail for $359.99.
