(Update) US gamers are getting a Smash Ultimate special edition with a swanky Pro Controller


And that amazing steelbook!

[Update: The bundle is now available for pre-order on Best Buy's website. It is priced at $140, though that could just be a placeholder until Nintendo officially reveals a price.]

Not content to let the UK get all the cool special editions for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo of America has announced a special edition bundle for US gamers that will include the game in a snazzy steelbook and with a themed Pro Controller. If you aren't keen on the steelbook (are you dead inside?), the Pro Controller will also be available separately on Smash's launch.

No prices have been given, but Pro Controllers typically go for $70. I wouldn't expect this one to be pricier. The bundle, though, could be anything from $100 to $150. I won't enjoy plunking down that much money just to get a steelbook, but I certainly don't have an excuse for passing it up now. Pre-orders are not live yet, but you can check out details over on the official Smash Bros. website.
