It’s the holiday season, and that means deals all around! Microsoft and Sony have already unveiled deals on Xbox One X, PlayStation 4, and more, and now it’s Nintendo’s turn. To show off their bargains, Nintendo released a video starring Luigi as well as GandaKris, a talented Amiibo modder who Nintendo hired as an Ambassador.

So what savings do the two have to show off? Nintendo revealed three deals today, including hardware bundles for two of their consoles. You’ll be able to get a Nintendo Switch bundled with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $300, essentially saving you the cost of the game itself. If you’d like to drive your kart in style, you can also pick up a set of two white Joy-Con Wheel accessories for $15. If a more traditional handheld experience is what you’re looking for, you can also pick up a yellow and red Nintendo 2DS bundle with Super Mario Maker pre-installed for $80.

These deals aren’t quite as numerous or enticing as what the competition is offering, but that’s not terribly surprising. Nintendo’s sales this holiday season will be driven by new releases like Pokémon: Let’s Go and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Nintendo knows those titles will be mega-sellers without a discount, so they can focus on an older title like Mario Kart when offering savings.
