Outside of the holidays, it’s rare to find deals on Nintendo Switch hardware, but Nintendo has announced a new bundle that serves as a good entry point if you’re interested in picking the console up. The bundle goes on sale starting February 15 and includes a system with neon red and blue Joy-Cons, as well as $35 credit for its digital storefront, the Eshop.

The bundle will be available at retailers around the US and costs $300, the standard price of a Switch console. While the bonus credit can be put toward any Eshop purchase, the storefront is home to a preponderance of great–and fairly cheap–indie games, such as Golf Story, Celeste, and the recently released Advance Wars-like strategy game Wargroove.

The credit can also be used to purchase DLC, which many of Switch’s must-have titles have received. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s expansion pass costs $20, as does Splatoon 2’s single-player focused Octo Expansion. If you pick up Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, its fighters pass runs for $25 and will give you access to five of its planned DLC characters, including Persona 5’s Joker.

If you’re unsure of what to purchase with the Eshop credit, we’ve put together a gallery of the best Nintendo Switch games for $20 or less to help you decide what’s worth downloading.

Nintendo has a number of exclusive games lined up for Switch this year. The adorable platformer Yoshi’s Crafted World launches on March 29, while Fire Emblem: Three Houses arrives this spring. Luigi’s Mansion 3, an Animal Crossing Switch game, and a “core” Pokemon RPG are also slated to release in 2019, although Nintendo has yet to announce release dates for those games.
