Unveiled through a post on Nintendo of America’s Twitter account, the new bundle will be available exclusively at Best Buy for the price of $339.99. This offering seems to be a respectable discount, as the Nintendo Labo: Variety Kit and Nintendo Labo: Robot Kit respectively cost $69.99 and $79.99. Seeing as the Nintendo Switch console goes for $299.99 itself, consumers will save $30-$40 depending on which Labo Kit they choose.
This isn’t the first time Nintendo teamed up with Best Buy for a bundle this year. Just a few weeks ago, Nintendo announced a Nintendo Switch bundle that included the Switch console with a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey, or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for $329.99.

These recent sales seem to suggest that Nintendo is slowly becoming more open to discounting its first-party software and teaming up with specific retailers. As Nintendo’s relationship with Best Buy blossoms, who knows what kind of promotions and savings we’ll see next.
