Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is Getting a Limited Edition Bundle Complete With Snazzy Pro Controller

I love steelbook editions.

Nintendo announced a special Super Smash Bros. Ultimate-themed Nintendo Switch Pro controller today, as well as a special edition Super Smash Bros. Ultimate bundle. The special edition controller is up for pre-order now, while the bundle will be available at a later time.

The Special Edition Switch Pro controller features white grips and a white Smash Bros. logo printed on the main body of the controller. It is available for pre-order now at Best Buy for $74.99 and will be available on December 7.

Meanwhile, the Special Edition Bundle includes both the special Pro Controller and a physical copy of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in a steelbook case. The pre-order page for the Smash Bros. Ultimate bundle went up on Best Buy for $139.99, though it doesn't appear to be available yet. No word on when other retailers will begin offering pre-orders.

For all you traditionalists out there, Nintendo previously announced the GameCube controller Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as well as a new GameCube controller adapter for the Nintendo Switch. The controller is available for pre-order for $29.99, while the adapter retails for $19.99. A firmware update actually made the Wii U version of the GameCube controller playable on the Switch.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the next game in Nintendo's popular fighting game franchise. For Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo is upping the stakes by including every fighting character ever featured in a Smash Bros. game, as well as new fighters like King. K. Rool, Simon, Ridley, and more (but not Waluigi).
