Don't Sleep On This Nintendo Switch Deal: Two Games For $30 (US)
That's a full $90 savings, folks.
The Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle or Starlink: Battle for Atlas Starter Pack bundled deal from Best Buy is back, and this time, the sale lasts all weekend. The bundle costs $30 USD, down from $120, and is available until Monday, September 2, as long as supplies last. Be sure to check out the rest of Best Buy's Labor Day sale deals.
Starlink: Battle for Atlas Starter Pack, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle bundle
The Starlink: Battle for Atlas Starter Pack (which is on sale for $33 individually at Amazon, for comparison) includes the Starlink action-adventure game as well as physical elements that actually attach to your controller and impact gameplay, such as a starship, weapons, controller mount, and pilot. The Nintendo Switch version also comes with a Fox McCloud pilot and an exclusive mission.
The game itself received a 7/10 in GameSpot's Starlink: Battle for Atlas review, in which one of the main criticisms was how expensive the game's physical models are. "Starlink is an interesting and enjoyable open-world game, one that fully understands the appeal of exploring new planets and dogfighting in the cold depths of space," wrote critic James O'Connor. "With a small fleet of ships at your disposal, it can be a lot of fun to progressively assault and weaken the Forgotten Legion's hold on the galaxy. It's just a shame that if you're interested in the physical models, you'll have to spend more to get the same experience as the digital version."
You'll also get Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle as part of the bundle, a crossover between the Mario and Raving Rabbids franchises created for Nintendo Switch. Mario + Rabbids, a turn-based tactical game with both single-player and co-op gameplay, has sold extremely well on the Switch, breaking into the console's top 10 bestsellers list, and it earned an impressive 9/10 in GameSpot's Mario + Rabbids review.
"Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle exudes off-beat optimism that never dissolves. It's a consistent delight, no matter how challenging the road becomes, because Kingdom Battle's unique turn-based tactics system is in every way a pleasure to engage with," wrote GameSpot's Edmond Tran. "Coupled with the annoyingly infectious allure of Rabbids, and the always delightful, colorful world of the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is an implausibly engrossing formula that is positively challenging and endlessly charming."
