The 2019 Nintendo Switch Holiday bundle featuring the smash hit Mario Kart 8: Deluxe won’t include the new Nintendo Switch with battery life from 4-9.5 hours, instead it’ll be the console with 2.5-6.5 hours.

Here’s a comparison from Nintendo’s website with Nintendo Switch models on the left and Nintendo Switch Lite consoles on the right side:

It’s a weird move and a rather annoying move at that, which basically tells us Nintendo had over ordered and has a stupid amount of consoles they need to sell through rather then get rid of. What is the more annoying point is that it’ll be sold at $299.99 and not at a discounted rate for not being the new model, but it is what it is.

The Nintendo Switch Holiday bundle availability depends on the retailer. Some have it on Black Friday, some earlier, some later. Please check your favorite retailer’s Holiday ads to find out!
