Last week, Nintendo released some new Software bundles on the Nintendo eShop, in Europe. They include a game and a Nintendo Switch Online subscription, and cost less than both bought separately (not taking into account any eventual sales).

Here’s the 4 bundles available right now:

  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe + Family Membership (12 months): 15% off
  • Splatoon 2 + Individual Membership (12 months): 12% off
  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate + Individual Membership (12 months): 11% off
  • Super Mario Maker 2 + Individual Membership (12 months): 12% off

Right now, those bundles are only available in Europe, and it’s not clear whether they will ever be released in Japan and North America. It’s also unclear whether they will ever go on sale.
