Get ready for even more bundle madness as Nintendo has announced new starter bundles for some of its most popular Switch titles: Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Beginning in September, we will see a new series of bundles that include controllers and starter pack versions of games for both Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo 3DS. We are also going to be seeing a sweet new Nintendo 2DS XL bundle in a host of new colors. They are focusing on the holiday shopping rush by timing it when most people start thinking about Christmas gifts or, better yet, stocking stuffers.
Reggie Fils-Aimé, Nintendo of America President and COO, had the following to say:
We want to give people a variety of options and price points when shopping for themselves or the Nintendo fans in their lives. Whether looking for a portable system for a first-time gamer or a cool controller to play Super Smash Bros.Ultimate, Nintendo has great gifts for all ages this holiday season.
Super Mario Odyssey Starter Pack ($59.99 MRSP)
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Starter Pack ($59.99 MSRP)
Splatoon 2 Starter Pack ($59.99 MSRP)
These will all be available at most retailers on September 28 and are a great buy for those looking to pick up the game and a helpful collector’s guide. Also worth mentioning is the previously announced Nintendo Switch Pro Controller Bundle for Super Smash Bros.Ultimate. That launches December 7 and will set you back $139.99. You can also pick up the controller by itself the same day for $74.99.
Nintendo also hinted that more great games for both Switch and Nintendo 3DS are on the way soon.
