Nintendo Switch, Mario Kart 8 Available Friday at Best Buy

If you didn’t catch it already in this week’s ad, come Friday you could get your hands on the new Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch. And, you could also buy a Nintendo Switch console, too.

Switch systems will be available in limited quantities when U.S. stores open on Friday, so make sure to head out to your local Best Buy ahead of time.

The console will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Just like for the March 3 launch of the Nintendo Switch, our stores will have a ticketing process for customers before we open. There will only be as many tickets as there are consoles available at each location, with a limit of one ticket per customer.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe features three new vehicles and a smart steering feature that makes it perfect for both beginners and seasoned pros – plus you can now hold up to two items at a time to attack your enemies.

Switch, Nintendo’s first console since 2012’s Wii U, can be played in multiple modes. You can dock it and play on your TV for a big-screen experience, or undock Switch for “handheld mode” and play on the go. Or, you can bump out its rear kickstand for “tabletop mode” to play with friends anywhere.

The left and right controllers — called Joy-Cons — can be used with the screen or detached from it. They’re motion sensitive, too, just like the Wii remote.
