Nintendo held their special Direct stream today to announce and show off upcoming 3DS and Switch titles where they closed the show with the announcement of Isabelle's inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate plus the reveal of a new Animal Crossing game for the Switch. Nintendo had more to show than just software, however.

A special hardware bundle for the Nintendo Switch and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was also revealed before the close of the live stream and presents the perfect opportunity for players still waiting to hop on the highly successful hybrid console platform.

The Switch console itself features a dock branded with the eight original Super Smash Bros. characters from the Nintendo 64 title — Mario, Samus, Kirby, Fox, Donkey Kong, Link, Yoshi and Pikachu — plus Joy-Cons branded with the Super Smash Bros. cross logo.

This special bundle will also come with a digital code for the new Super Smash Bros. title and is scheduled to launch on November 2nd along with the new Smash Ultimate branded controllers and GameCube controller adapters, but players will still need to wait that extra month to actually play the fighter.

As of the time of this posting, the hardware bundle is not yet available to pre-order though it is set to retail for $360 USD. This wasn't the only Switch bundle announced in the past week either, as Nintendo also recently revealed the Pokémon-themed Pikachu and Eevee Nintendo Switch for the new Pokémon: Let’s Go games also coming this Fall.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is still scheduled to release on December 7, 2018. You can check out the official images of the bundle in the gallery below plus the trailer from the Direct in the video after the jump.
