    During the Sept. 13 Nintendo Direct, Nintendo revealed that this fall they will be releasing a Switch bundled with Mario Odyssey. This bundle will include the Switch, Super Mario Odyssey, Mario themed joy cons and a Mario Odyssey themed carrying case.The bundle will be available alongside the release of Odyssey on October 27. In the US, it will be priced at $380.

      Maybe I'm being cynical, but the carrying case seems like an excuse to bump up the price.

      It looks like a reskin of the official case that launched with the system for $20. I haven't seen one or used one, but it gets decent ratings. Holds 5 games, has a built in stand for the system which might be nice on things like planes where the kickstand isn't so great. To be honest you're going to buy a case anyways, this one is perfectly fine. All purchased separately the Switch is $300, the game is $60 and the case is $20 so no the bundle is not some kind of deal (as expected) but you get everything you might intend on buying and it's a bit more unique than what you may get otherwise. It's not for everyone, but it doesn't seem to be a rip off either. Now if you're not going to use that case then yes it's kind of pointless for you to get it.

      If it is indeed the same case, I would agree with your points.

      One thing I thought of this morning is that in this bundle is a download code for Mario Odyssey, not a physical copy. The file size for Mario Odyssey is expected to be 5.7 GB. With the Switch I would prefer a physical copy instead, partly due to the limited storage space built in the Switch (32 GB), partly because playing a physical copy on the Switch does not require a huge install like the PS4 does (so you actually do save storage space by getting a physical copy, well for MOST games) , and partly for the ability to resell the game later.

      From my understanding, the cartridges are quite a bit more expensive than discs. I don't know if this is correct, so someone with more insider knowledge could validate/correct. I guess this is where Nintendo makes its extra bucks on the bundle.
      If I didn't have a Switch already, I would be unlikely to purchase this bundle (because of the same limitations MrMischief outlined).

      A download code... can't trust that after what happened to me with my NNID...

      I've had good luck with download codes, but I'm hoping to put off buying an SD card as long as possible.

      I debated getting this bundle, in england it's priced around £320.
      Ended up getting a switch from VERY, With Mario kart 8 for £250, Brought a case for a tenner on ebay with screen protectors (although not mario addition!)- Will get mario odyssey when it comes out (around £41 is the cheapest i can find), So will get mario odyssey, Mario kart, NEON switch and a case for about £301 in the end which is cheaper than this whole deal!.

      Cancel the honeymoon. I am sure it costs way more than a Switch.
