Nintendo has revealed, via the Super Smash Bros. official site, a new Smash Bros. themed controller coming with the release of the highly-anticipated title. You can see a screenshot of the new device down below:
This new controller will be bundled into the game’s limited edition but you will also be able to purchase it separately this December. At this time, Nintendo doesn’t have any pricing information for the limited edition version of Smash Bros. Ultimate or the new controller on the game’s official site.
However, Best Buy is currently listing the pro controller by itself for $74.99. The retailer also has a listing for the limited edition, which will cost $139.99. With the limited edition of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, you’ll receive the game, the Nintendo pro controller, and a steel-book.
At E3 2018, fans got to see a new fighter join the roster who has been one of the most requested characters since Smash Bros. Melee back in 2001, Ridley. This Metroid villain took on the likes of Mega Man, Mario, and arch-rival Samus in his reveal trailer and will finally “hit the big time” when Ultimate releases in December.
Earlier this month, Nintendo held a Nintendo Direct where they revealed some more information on Smash Bros. Ultimate. The platform announced that Castlevania’s Simon Belmont and Richter Belmont would be joining the already enormous cast. Along with these Castlevania reveals, Nintendo also announced the addition of Donkey Kong’s arch-nemesis King K. Rool. Like Ridley’s reveal, Rool’s inclusion in Ultimate came as a shock to most fans who thought they would never see the villain appear in the Smash Bros. series.
Stay strong Waluigi fans. There’s still a chance he pops up in a future reveal.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases December 7th, 2018 for the Nintendo Switch.
