(Update) Russian Nintendo store leaks Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Switch bundle


More Switch units on shelves?

[Update: It seems as if the bundle is Russia-only.]

In case you haven't picked up a Switch yet, Nintendo might be helping the stock situation with its first major bundle.

It's for none other than Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, an enhanced port that's coming later this month on Nintendo's new system. That's according to Nintendo's own official Russian storefront, which seemingly dropped the news a little early, as the listing has been removed.

It's nothing fancy, you can just choose between the neon or gray systems and you'll get Deluxe as a physical pack-in alongside of some fancy Rainbow Road box art. There's no word on a worldwide release, but odds are we'll hear something soon, if not tonight from Nintendo's 6PM ET Direct.
