‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Nintendo Switch Bundle Confirmed


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate adds Isabelle

It's not the N64 Classic many of us were hoping for but if you've got a Switch and a desire to play classic games, the new wireless NES controllers are probably worth a look.

Thankfully, we can have our cake and eat it too.

Nintendo Direct also saw the announcement of a new Switch online service. Ports of Wii U games were among them, as expected.

You can pick up New Super Mario Bros.

A new Super Smash Bros Ultimate branded console is in the pipeline.

The new version adds gyro controls, HD rumble and single Joy-Con controls for multiplayer battles.

A similar FAQ on Nintendo's US site essentially says the same: "Save data stored via the Save Data Cloud backup is available for as long as you have an active Nintendo Switch Online membership". Microsoft offers free cloud saves without an Xbox Live subscription. In terms of pricing, a 1-month membership costs £3.49 ($3.99); 3-months cost £6.99 ($7.99); and a 12-month membership costs £17.99 ($19.99).

In regards to the NES games, the FAQ confirms that players will only have offline access to these classic titles for seven days as long as their Nintendo Switch Online subscription is active.

The bundle itself will become available on November 2, with pre-orders having already opened, while the previously announced GameCube controller and four-way adapter will also be publicly released on the same date. These include a cute customised console with a Poke Ball Plus and the Let's Go Pikachu game.
