Nintendo is bundling Switch Online membership with a few major games

All top 10 all-time Switch sellers

Nintendo is introducing a new “perk” for the Switch Online service, but there’s a catch. You can now subscribe to Switch Online and get a bundled discount price on select games, ranging from 11% to 15%. Not only is it mostly for new members, but it also offers very scant discounts to boot.

Right now Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Smash Ultimate, and Splatoon 2 are roughly $50 physical, with Mario Maker 2 being the most recent of the bunch and still at $60 for a physical copy without sales. Sadly, all of these games are $60 on the eShop, because…Nintendo. So if you do get the bundle, you might be missing out on a few bucks.

Although the tweet only mentions the four games, the upcoming Overwatch port is also mentioned on the official UK landing page as part of the deal. But don’t forget! Nintendo is also introducing an “upgrade to the Family Plan” concept pretty soon, and the details are still scarce on that program.
