Celebrate Mario Day 2019 with a Weeklong Nintendo Switch Promotion

Save Some Coins on Select Mario Games with Purchase of Nintendo
Switch

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/MAR10Day?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#MAR10Daylt;/agt;–Wa-hoo! It’s almost time for Mario Day! Every year, people celebrate the
mustached hero of the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario, on March 10, aka Mar10
Day. For this year’s celebration, Nintendo is offering a special deal on
select Mario games for the Nintendo
Switch
system. Between Sunday, March 10, and Saturday, March 16,
anyone outside the Mushroom Kingdom can purchase select Nintendo Switch
systems and one of five select games starring Mario for a suggested
retail price of only $329.98. That’s a savings of $30, which amounts to
50 percent off one of the games.


People that already own Nintendo Switch can still take advantage of the
promotion, as they can purchase a digital download code from
participating retail stores or retailer websites to redeem in Nintendo
eShop for the same five Mario games for only $39.99 each. Downloaded
games from Nintendo eShop live directly on the Nintendo Switch system,
so it’s ideal for gamers who want all their games in one place, as
there’s no need to carry around game cards.

The five Mario games featured in the promotion, which all offer fun
experiences that can be enjoyed together by the whole family, are:

  • Super
    Mario Party
    , an uproarious party game for up to four players.
    Play as classic characters in a series of more than 80 fun new
    minigames.
  • Super
    Mario Odyssey
    , a massive globe-trotting 3D adventure for one
    to two players. Using his new ally Cappy to control objects, animals
    and enemies, Mario explores multiple creative Kingdoms to collect
    Power Moons.
  • Mario
    Kart 8 Deluxe
    , the multiplayer high-speed racer. Race friends
    through colorful tracks using iconic characters like Mario, Luigi,
    Princess Peach, Bowser, and even Link from The Legend of Zelda
    series and the Inklings from Splatoon.
  • Mario
    Tennis Aces
    , a multiplayer sports game. Play locally or online
    with friends in fast-paced tennis matches across multiple modes.
  • New
    Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
    , a multiplayer side-scrolling
    platformer with 164 creative and challenging levels.

“What better way to celebrate Mario Day than by playing some of the most
popular Mario games on Nintendo Switch,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of
America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This promotion
is a great option for consumers who want to pick up Nintendo Switch and
some hit games at a value price.”
