I understand that, but LQX seemed to have missed it, and I wasn't 100% sure that I'd missed the XB1 quietly having that feature or something.

¥ 55,300? That's like 496 US bucks. Not to mention the International Shipping. Looks like I'm out man. :(

What's the point of bundles if there's no savings?

Those are resellers. Preorders on Amazon.jp went extremely quick...you're a few days late.

Sometimes nicer then just buying the vanilla console and game separately

This one comes with the Splatoon 2 Joy-Con, which aren't included in other hardware packages.

Glad I've waited to get a Switch. I'm gonna check Amazon Japan regularly to see if I'm lucky and grab a bundle with pink and green joycons! God bless region free stuff.

Loads of fanservice. Splatoon-themed Joy-cons (for Japan), Splatoon-themed box, and some Splatoon stickers thrown in.

They are even selling the box separately for those who already got the Switch and may feel like they are missing out on this, LOL.

Basically it's the bundle for those waiting on Splatoon 2 to buy a Switch.

I mean it might look appealing enough to result in a few more game copies sold that way (people like bundles), but I agree it's a bit redundant.

Is switch region free enough for importing? I speak/read no japanese, NA Nintendo account, and not really interested in importing titles. Will I run into any oddities purchasing games in NA physical/online with one?

However, I really want the neon pink/green splatoon bundle. =)

Fair enough. Yeah, there's nothing like it at the moment. It seems silly, but it was something that blew me away the first time I noticed it.

Switch is as region free as they come. The account is what matters, not the hardware.

intend is going to make a killing on Joycon colors

Gold, Black, White, Platinum.... the possibilities are endless... and everybody will have a unique switch.

Is the box only, digital code inside case coming to the States? Best Buy and Amazon can do 20% off for anything physical - and this is physical ;)
