Nevermind the one console future, Nintendo would rather like you to buy as many Switch’s as you can.
Back in February’s investor Q&A, Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto said, “Our ultimate ambition is for a Nintendo Switch to be owned not just by every family, but by every single person.”
That’s a bold target, to put it mildly, but the new Nintendo Switch Second Set bundle, which is now available in Japan, makes that scenario a teeny tiny bit more likely.
The new bundle is firmly aimed at households that already own at least one Nintendo Switch, and only includes a base console, two Joy-Con, and two Joy-Con straps. Left out of the box are the Dock, AC adapter, Joy-Con Grip, and HDMI cable.
The product description is clear that consumers will need to use a existing dock for charging and connecting to a TV.
The Second Set retails at 24,980 yen, which equates to around $226/£170.
At the time of writing there is no confirmation on the bundle getting a Western release.
