Nintendo selling empty box for five dollars

Out of the box

Recommended Videos

After announcing the Nintendo Switch Splatoon 2 bundle, Nintendo figured some people may just want to forget all that game nonsense and just enjoy a nice empty box. Whether you can’t afford the bundle, already own a Switch, are an avid box collector, or want to prank your kids on their birthday, you can get the Splatoon 2 Switch bundle box for 540 yen in Japan. No Switch, no game, no manuals, no cords or accessories. Just a box.

I remember in middle school my friends and I discovered FedEx would send you however many boxes you want for free. So naturally we ordered something like 200 and tried to make forts and weapons. How much cooler would those forts have been if they were decked out in Splatoon 2 imagery? Now you can try, but for $5 per box.
