In short, MAR10 Mario Day, at least when it comes to the official side of things, is in some ways starting now with “a month’s worth of activities.” The event kicked off yesterday with a party at Nintendo NY “starring Mario, Luigi and YouTube superstar Ryan Kaji from Ryan’s World,” and today the celebration continues with a “Mushroom Kingdom’s worth of exciting announcements.”
Alongside all of the MAR10 Mario Day deals that are certainly on the way, Nintendo has now announced the Nintendo Switch Mario Choose One Bundle that is set to hit store shelves on March 10, 2023. The console bundle comes with some extra goodies, your choice of one of three Mario titles, and will launch at $299.99.
