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.

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.

Apparently the Splatoon 2 Nintendo Switch Game Traveler Deluxe Travel Case for NA is up for pre-order only at GameStop right now. Not sure if Amazon will ever stock up on them yet.

All of the information was from the European Nintendo Direct, NA never got any of the Splatoon stuff announced until now. It's not like it's a big surprise, there just wasn't any information yet (assuming they were waiting for E3?)

Now the only thing to do is wait and see what color Joycons come with their Splatoon bundle (assuming we get one).

I already pre-ordered this because my wife is a Splatoon addict and I am an enabler.

Hopefully Best Buy will offer it at a normal price and I can cancel.

It's a targeted promotion, only select accounts can use it. If you don't already have an account it might be worth making one to see if their selection involves new customers, but it's a roll of the dice.

If you think about it from Nintendo's point of view, why is it only $75? Stuff like this they can price outrageously, put "limited edition" on the package, and people will buy it.

They're going to sell every one of these they make, I bet. And the same would be true if it was $100.

Personally, I already have a Pro Controller and I'm not buying another.
