The first appearance of a Nintendo Switch in a new colourway.
Scheduled to be marketed on February 12 at 349 euros, the Nintendo Switch – Mario Edition (Red and Blue) will consist of red Joy-Con controllers with blue straps, a blue Joy-Con support, a docking station and a red console as well as a transport pouch with a screen protector. For the anecdote, the main frame of the hybrid machine of the Japanese manufacturer is traditionally dark gray, so it’s completely new to see a different color even if this reinforces the collector side of this model celebrating 35 years of the Mario license.

Super Mario Bros 35, global challenges to unite players around the world
In addition to revealing a collector’s Switch with a red and blue set, Nintendo also announced that the competitive online game Super Mario Bros. 35 (exclusively available with the Nintendo Switch Online service subscription) will test the talents of players during the three global challenges organized between January and March: “To achieve the goal of Super Mario Bros. World’s first challenge. 35, players around the world are going to have to come together to defeat 3.5 million Bowsers from January 19 at 8 a.m. to January 26 at 7:59 a.m. In addition to the 35-player battles that already feature Bowser, this week’s Special Battle features a selection of stages that will provide even more opportunities to rub shoulders with the thorns of Mario’s eternal rival. If the goal is met, every player who defeats Bowser at least once will be able to receive 350 Platinum Points which can be redeemed for various rewards in the My Nintendo Store. More details on the next global challenges organized in February and March will be revealed shortly.”
