Amazon Opens Pre-Orders For Super Smash Bros. GameCube Adapter and Controller Bundle
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
$100 if you're all in
Those eager to pick up Super Smash Bros. for Wii U have no doubt been spending plenty of time scouring listings and some pre-order packages popping up at some online stores, yet now Amazon US has placed its sizeable and particularly valuable hat in the ring.
Amazon listing a pre-order does, in a sense, bring some legitimacy to proceedings, and the pricing also gives us an indication of what to expect when the game, GameCube Controller Adapter and rather neat GameCube controller, pictured above, come onto the market. Although the retail giant is using a placeholder 31st December release date, the following are the prices it's charging for the multiple Smash Bros. packages on Wii U.
- GameCube Controller Adapter — $19.99
- GameCube Controller - Super Smash Bros. Edition — $29.99
- Super Smash Bros. game — $59.96
- Super Smash Bros. Bundle (game, controller and adapter) — $99.99
The bundle does offer a $10 saving over each individual part, though $100 is plenty to put down on a single game, especially if you're also planning to buy the 3DS version first in October for around $39.99.
These are US prices, of course, with other countries and regions set to vary. At the time of writing there are no equivalent listings on the UK or German Amazon stores.
Have you decided whether you're buying the game on its own or also putting down cash for some GameCube controller accessories? Let us know in the comments.
