The Nintendo Switch will be available in two different bundle options, but many fans are asking what is the difference between the two Nintendo Switch bundles? Today Nintendo unveiled more details on the Switch, including two different bundles that will be made available on release day. The difference between the two bundles is more cosmetic than anything. We do appreciate Nintendo offering some choice in what bundle people buy. We’re even more thankful that Nintendo didn’t create a special pricing scheme for the Switch, both bundles cost the same as you’ll read below.
Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con
This bundle includes the Nintendo Switch console and Nintendo Switch dock in black, and left and right Joy-Con controllers in a contrasting gray. It also includes all the extras you need to get started.
Nintendo Switch with Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Con
This bundle includes the Nintendo Switch console and Nintendo Switch dock in black, with contrasting left and right Joy-Con controllers—one red, one blue. It also includes all the extras you need to get started.
The only difference between the two different Nintendo Switch bundles is the color of the Joy-Con controllers. Both bundles retail at the same MSRP price, which is $299.99 in North America. Both Switch bundles come with the following items:
