Nintendo Announces Super Mario Party Bundle for Europe

Need another pair of Joy-Con before Super Mario Party comes out? Don't worry, Nintendo has you covered if you live in Europe.

Man, Europe gets to have all of the fun. Not only is the continent getting its own Super Smash Bros. Ultimate bundle in December, now it’s also getting a Super Mario Party bundle this November.

Announced through a post on Nintendo’s Super Mario UK Twitter Account, the new Super Mario Party bundle will include a copy of the game as well as a pair of Neon Green/Neon Pink Joy-Con. These Joy-Con will look familiar to some considering the fact that they have the same color scheme as the pair previously included with Walmart’s exclusive Splatoon 2 Switch bundle.

The new Super Mario Party bundle could come in handy to many as the game only allows player’s to use a single Joy-Con during play. Even if you have three Pro Controllers laying around your house, you’ll still only be able to play Super Mario Party using Joy-Con.

Interestingly enough, the newly announced bundle is coming more than one month after Super Mario Party‘s initial launch. While Super Mario Party is launching on October 5th, the bundle will only hit store shelves on November 23rd. That being said, it seems that this bundle is not aimed at day one Mario Party die-hards, rather, parents looking for a practical Christmas gift.

Super Mario Party was one of Nintendo’s more surprising titles at this year’s E3. While rumors and leaks took the surprise out of the Overcooked 2, Fortnite, and Paladins for Nintendo Switch announcements, nobody really saw Super Mario Party coming.

As previously stated, Super Mario Party will be released on October 5th. If a similar Super Mario Party bundle is announced for any other region, we’ll let you know.
