Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the upcoming installment in the acclaimed fighting game series, will be launching in a little over two months. You can currently pre-order a Nintendo Switch bundle, which features a Smash Bros. decorated dock and Smash Bros.-themed Joy-Cons. The full game download included with the bundle will be available on its December 7th release date.
Now, the Nintendo UK store has unveiled three more bundles. One, is the normal bundle already announced, but it also includes the steelbook case. The other two bundles feature Mario and Zelda-themed controllers in addition.
Called 'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Edition Mario Pack' and 'Ultimate Edition Link Pack' respectively, these bundles are a little more expensive than the normal Ultimate Edition. The controllers are interesting because they are clearly GameCube inspired, yet have additional buttons for some Nintendo Switch functions. For example, you have the home button, plus the camera button. (Maybe you'll be able to record 30 second clips of your best KOs.) The Packs are £339.99, which translates to around $394.84 in US dollars. It should be noted that these Packs appear to only be available through the Nintendo UK store. It remains to be seen if these bundles will be released outside the United Kingdom.
The dawn of a new Super Smash Bros. is almost upon us. Ever since the teaser from March, fans have been greatly anticipating the Nintendo Switch title. Ultimate was revealed at this year's E3 to include every playable fighter in Smash Bros. history. Not only that, but Ridley and Daisy were announced as newcomers. Later, Nintendo unveiled a Smash Bros.-focused Direct, where it announced Simon Belmont, Richter, Chrom, Dark Samus, and King K. Rool. Then, at Nintendo's recent Direct, the company squeezed in one character reveal at the end: Isabelle, from the Animal Crossing series. With presumably more to be announced, this game looks to truly be the 'ultimate' Smash Bros. experience.
Nintendo has not announced when there will be more information regarding the game. One can imagine that in late October and/or November, there will be at least one or two more character reveals. Plus, Nintendo still needs to reveal the mysterious mode that was carefully blurred during the Smash Bros. direct.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be released on December 7th for Nintendo Switch.
