Nintendo Pushes Super Mario Odyssey Pro Controller Bundle

If you thought Super Mario Odyssey was getting left out of the 35th Anniversary conversation, think again as Nintendo has a new item. The company is releasing a special Pro Controller complete with a downloadable version of the full game. By full game, we mean the main game as well as all of the updates and DLC content that was added to it over the past few years. The controller itself doesn't have any new design qualities to it, it is just a standard Pro Controller. But essentially this is to get you stoked to buy Super Mario 3D All-Stars since the game won't be a part of that collection. The controller and game sell as one item for $100, but unfortunately, it is exclusive to Walmart. Here's more info on it from the retailer.

Kick your game sessions up a notch with the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Includes motion controls, HD Rumble feature, built-in amiibo functionality, and more. Explore incredible places far from the Mushroom Kingdom as you join Mario and his ally Cappy on a massive, globe-trotting 3D adventure. Use amazing abilities—like the power to capture and control objects, animals, and enemies—to collect Power Moons so you can power up the Odyssey airship and save Princess Peach from Bowser's wedding plans! Thanks to heroic, hat-shaped Cappy, Mario's got moves that'll make you rethink his traditional run-and-jump gameplay—like cap jump, cap throw, and capture. Use captured cohorts such as enemies, objects, and animals to progress through the game and uncover loads of hidden collectibles. And if you feel like playing with a friend, just pass them a Joy-Con controller! Player 1 controls Mario while Player 2 controls Cappy. This sandbox-style 3D Mario adventure is packed with secrets and surprises, plus exciting new kingdoms to explore.
