    Wait just a minute. In the description it says that once you buy the pack, referring to the $50 limited edition, you will download each the two games separately. So that sounds to me like there will be no cartridge included with the package?

      Hello Reagan,

      This bundle will have two games in one cartridge. If you want to buy the game separately, you can only buy it on the Nintendo E-shop.

      Thank you for visiting our website.
      Best Regards,
      Playasia Team.
