If you live in Europe, you can also get your hands on a Super Smash Bros. Wii U Amiibo Collector’s Edition for £50 that includes the game along with a Mario Amiibo figure in one nifty package.
The Smash GameCube Controller (a standard black GCN controller but with the Smash Bros. logo in the center) can be bought separately for $30/£22.85, whereas the Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter will also be sold for $20/£18 separately (reportedly).
There are also Mario, Yoshi & Peach official Nintendo-licensed Smash Bros. GameCube Controllers for Wii U called “Wii U Fight Pad Controllers” (made by “Performance Designed Product”) that cost $30/£20 each. They have a shiny, glossy finish and come in Red, Green & Pink designs. Unlike the Nintendo Smash GameCube controller that only plugs into the Wii U via the GameCube Adapter, these controllers plug into the Wii Remote directly, making them more “wireless”.
This same company also sells similarly-colored Mario, Yoshi, Peach and Luigi Wii Remote Plus controllers for $40/£41 each.
While this Special Edition version of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (officially titled the “Super Smash Bros. Bundle”) is disappointing to some who were looking for the full-on Collector’s Edition treatment for such a high-profile game… It’s still much better than nothing!
And don’t forget that launching alongside Super Smash Bros. for Wii U are the Amiibo figures themselves. All told, there will be 18 total Amiibo, with the latter 6 launching on December 19th. The 18 Amiibo figures available will include: 1. Mario, 2. Peach, 3. Yoshi, 4. Donkey Kong, 5. Link, 6. Fox, 7. Samus, 8. Wii Fit Trainer, 9. Villager, 10. Pikachu, 11. Kirby, 12. Marth, 13. Zelda, 14. Diddy Kong, 15. Luigi, 16. Little Mac, 17. Captain Falcon, 18. Pit. Early 2015 will bring another set of figures in January or February. Amiibo’s will cost $13/£10.50 per figure.
Also don’t forget that stores can have their own bundles. Right now there is a Walmart Smash Bros. Wii U Amiibo Bundle that includes the Smash Bros. Wii U game, along with a Mario, Pikachu & Link Amiibo figure for $90.
There is also a hardcover Super Smash Bros. Collector’s Edition Prima Games Strategy Guide that is well worth picking up for uber-fans. It cost $35/£20 but will satisfy those CE gamers looking for an art book.
A Super Smash Bros. Wii U Console Bundle, that includes a 32GB black Wii U system, a physical copy of Super Smash Bros., a Smash GameCube Controller & the Wii U GameCube Adapter, has been rumored with a leaked image of the box art, but the console has yet to go on sale or be officially announced. It will likely be on sale this holiday during December… One would hope.
Will you be picking up the Super Smash Bros. Wii U Collector’s Edition?
What CE contents would you have liked to see? A toy figure? Amiibo’s included? A soundtrack? An art book?
