When an iconic video game gets a new sequel fit for modern day consoles, you know it calls for a retro game controller to be introduced. Such is what Nintendo is doing with its upcoming video game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This much anticipated video game is set to hit the stores starting December 7, 2018 and along with it is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Limited Edition which will come with a copy of the game, a Nintendo GameCube Controller Super Smash Bros. Edition and a Nintendo GameCube Controller adapter, so it could be use on the Switch console.
The iconic GameCube controller isn’t new. There are already third-party versions floating round the market, but this one here is the real-deal, straight from the maker and thus, it will make a good addition for any true blue Nintendo followers. In fact, the official game controller, which picture first appeared at this year’s E3, has quietly made its way to Amazon and Best Buy as a pre-order in exchange for a modest sum of $29.99 of your hard-earned money.
