Nintendo has announced a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Limited Edition for gamers to drool over. And this is in addition to the literal mountain of new details coming out of Nintendo’s Direct livestream for the game a few days ago. So strap in because we’ve got a lot to go over.
The big announcement this time is that the company is releasing a special Limited Edition of the game, only in European markets though, which includes a custom box, a GameCube controller, and a GameCube controller adapter.
And even if you don’t care about the artwork on the box, which is beautiful by the way, the GameCube adapter and controller is a welcome addition. Anyone who played the older Wii versions of the game will remember how difficult it was finding both an adapter that was compatible with the console and a working GameCube controller. And if you were a competitive Smash player who needs the feel of a GameCube Pad to play well, this is great news for you.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is on track for release on Nintendo’s Switch console December 7, with the Limited Edition coming to Europe on the same day. Check out the Twitter announcement for the Limited Edition of the new fighting game down below.
