Nintendo is literally selling an empty Nintendo Switch box for about $5

Pre-order now!

Nintendo is one of the biggest video game companies ever. Everything that has their name on it sells gangbusters (well, with the exception of the Wii U). Knowing this, Nintendo is selling empty boxes of their very successful console/portable hybrid, the Nintendo Switch.

On the Japanese Nintendo website, a Nintendo Switch Splatoon 2 bundle box equal to about $5 USD is on sale. After translating the product description, it was clear the box is filled with nothing. It's just a box and it also sounds like you'll have to assemble the box yourself (meaning just folding it so it looks like it should).

You can view the product description below:

Recommended for Splatoon fans who already have Nintendo Switch!

It's hard to imagine anyone actually buying this but who knows?! Some diehard collectors will probably buy one.
