Nintendo Switch Pro Controller Bundled With Super Mario Odyssey Is a Bargain


If you're new to the Nintendo Switch, odds are a Pro Controller and Super Mario Odyssey are on your wish list. That said, you can knock out both in one go thanks to a new bundle that offers the controller and a full game download code for $99.99. Given that buying these two separately right now would cost you $120 (and that's factoring in the fact that Super Mario Odyssey is on sale in many places for $49.99), this is quite a bargain.

You can find the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller / Super Mario Odyssey bundle here at Walmart with a ship date slated for September 8th. If it sells out you might be able to find it here on Amazon at some point in the near future. The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller offers the best experience on the console by far thanks to excellent ergonomics, motion controls, HD rumble, amiibo functionality, and epic battery life (up to 40 hours). If you play on your TV a lot, you're into fighting games and shooters, or you simply want a more comfortable controller, the Pro is absolutely essential.
