Nintendo is Offering a Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon Bundle That's Just "OK"

Fire Emblem Warrors is also getting a special edition, but only for the Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo announced two new special edition bundles at the GameStop Expo, both are a bit confusing. First, we have the Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon bundle which packages both games for about the same retail price you would pay for both games individuall, only with some additional art cards. Then there's the Fire Emblem Warriors Special Edition which comes with signifancly more bonuses, but is only available for the Nintendo Switch version when the game is coming out for both Switch and 3DS.

Ultra Moon & Ultra Sun bundle

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon Veteran Trainer's Dual Pack offers both games for $79.99. Now, since both games retail for about $39.99, there isn't much of a discount getting the Dual Pack instead of both games individually. Additionally, Amazon is also offering an exclusive bundle for both games (also priced at $79.99) but it comes with a steelbook case. The Veteran Pack instead includes 16 art cards and a digital download card for 200 Poke Balls, but no special case.

Fire Emblem Warriors bundle

The Switch Special Edition for Fire Emblem Warriors will come with the Switch game, a three CD soundtrack collection, premium cards featuring several characters from the game, as well as some special slipcases for the cards, and a dual-sided poster in both English and Japanese. The special edition will retail for $79.99 and will be available on the same day the game comes out on the Switch and 3DS, that is, October 20.

Interestingly enough there won't be a special edition for the 3DS version of the game. In fact, I haven't seen hardly anything promoting the 3DS version of Fire Emblem Warriors. Presumably because the Nintendo Switch version of the game gets priority treatment for being another title for Nintendo's newest console, and also because promotional materials for the game will look better from the graphically superior Switch version.

So there you have it. Personally the Fire Emblem Warriors special edition is probably the more interesting of the two special editions. Unfortunately the lack of a 3DS version is disappointing, especially for Fire Emblem fans who still haven't been able to track down a Nintendo Switch.
