First spotted by Nintendo Life, the special-edition Switch’s design is influenced by Fortnite and also comes with a few in-game goodies. The Joy-Con are new shades of yellow and blue, while the back of console and dock feature various Fortnite skins.

Inside the box, you’ll find a code for the Wildcat Bundle, which comes with three outfits and three Back Blings. Fortnite will also be pre-installed on the console–not exactly a bonus since it’s free-to-play already. You’ll also get 2,000 V-Bucks to spend in game.

Pricing for the console hasn’t been revealed for Europe or New Zealand, but Australian shoppers can expect to pay AU$469.95 for the Fortnite-themed Switch. Nintendo hasn’t said whether the limited-edition console will come to North America.

This isn’t the first time Nintendo has used Fortnite to sell Switch consoles, but previous bundles came with standard Switch consoles. The Nintendo Switch has been hard to find in recent months, but it’s currently in stock at Best Buy. Recently, the Switch has become the most convenient device to play Fortnite on a handheld, in large part due to the ongoing legal dispute between Epic Games and Apple/Google that has taken Fortnite off both the App and Play Stores.
