Anyone that's getting a Nintendo Switch this holiday season will want to pick up a Pro Controller and Super Mario Odyssey. That said, you can knock out both in one go thanks to a bundle that offers the controller and a full game download code. However, the big news is that the bundle, which is normally priced at $99.99, is down to $69 here at Walmart. The list price for the Pro controller by itself is $70, which means that you're getting the game for free. To put that into perspective, the standalone Super Mario Odyssey game is on sale for $45 here on Amazon.
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.
On a related note, Nintendo's plans for the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros were fully unveiled recently, and they involve a ton of new games for the Nintendo Switch, toys, events, and more. This includes the debut of Super Mario 3D All-Stars and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. What's more, both games are now available to order / pre-order.
