The Super Smash Bros. series will be returning later this year, with Ultimate set to be the biggest game of the franchise. Despite the game releasing on Switch, playing the games with a GameCube controller is still the preferred way to play and that won’t be changing anytime soon. Luckily, Nintendo will be releasing a new GameCube controller for Smash fans to play with.
Amazon has published the official product page for GameCube Controller Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Edition, revealing lots of new information on the product. First up is the packaging of the product, which gives a good look at the controller that you can check out at the bottom of this post.
The release date is currently slated for December 31st, but this is likely a placeholder. Seeing as the game launches earlier in the month, it’s likely that the release date will be updated and be closer to the game’s launch.
Those planning on purchasing the controller will be able to do so for $29.99, which is standard for these controllers. Nintendo also released similar controllers for the release of the Wii U version release, with the price also being $29.99. It’s worth noting that you’ll need the GameCube Controller Adapter in order to connect it to the Switch console, as the console doesn’t have the required ports.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is set to launch exclusively for Switch on December 7th, with the price set for $59.99.
