The Nintendo Switch has been a massive seller since it initially released with big first-party video game titles supporting the console. There also doesn’t appear to be any shortages for game releases as this holiday season the console is receiving Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. However, there seems to be yet another reason to go out and purchase a unit within the holidays.
According to a tweet made online, a French retailer called Carrefour has seemingly leaked a console bundle. This bundle will pack together Super Smash Bros. Ultimate along with a custom Nintendo Switch and Joy-Cons. The image released is grainy so it’s hard to tell what the official design actually is, but it appears to feature a dark grey and white color scheme.

Nintendo has not made any official announcement yet regarding a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Nintendo Switch bundle, but being one of their biggest video game franchises, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Nintendo pushing sales through the use of a bundle. After all, Nintendo did unveil a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Pro controller not very long ago.
Regardless, because Nintendo has not officially confirmed the bundle, we have to label this as just a rumor for now. As for when Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches, players can purchase a copy of the game exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on December 7, 2018.
