In an unexpected, at least after announcing a special Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee Nintendo Switch, move, Nintendo revealed another special console for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The bundle includes grey Joy-Cons, complete with the Super Smash Bros. logo, specially branded dock, a digital copy of the game for $359.99. While this bundle doesn’t include any discount, it’s still a solid design and awesome way to go if someone is looking to get both. Those interested can snag it when Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases on Dec. 7, 2018.
If the console wasn’t enough, Nintendo also announced Isabelle as a new challenger. Coming from the ever popular Animal Crossing series, she looks to add a number of cute and amusing moves to confound and send opponents flying.
Needless to say, here reveal was nothing too surprising. With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate bringing back every character, the new challenges seem to be focused on fan favorites. So far we’ve gotten Inkling Boy/Girl, a no-brainer considering how popular Splatoon is; the often requested Ridley finally joins the fight; Simon from the iconic Castlevania series and King K. Rool, a massive win for fans all around.
Sadly, there is still no word on Waluigi joining the fray. With his popularity stemming from the fact every other notable Mario character is in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, it has become something of a joke even Nintendo is in on. So far there has been some light teasing, some crazy speculation involving chairs and certainly plenty of potential given echo fighter, though he has yet to get announced. With him being arguably the last extremely popular character, outside of someone like Monster Hunter, Yokai Watch or possibly another Bayonetta representative, it looks increasingly likely he will make an appearance. If not in the base game, as arguably the first and most necessary piece of DLC.
