Now Playing: Nintendo Switch Gets Into The Breach, Dedicated Indie Channel, And More - GS News Update

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

Nintendo has announced three new game bundles for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, and Super Mario Odyssey. Each bundle goes for $60 and will launch on September 28.

Referred to as "starter pack" versions of the games, each bundle includes both the game and a colored strategy guide to help players. Nintendo hasn't revealed what's exactly inside the guide, so it could be as simple as a collection of tips for getting started or as complex as a series of maps to every collectible and in-game secret. The company hasn't revealed whether the Breath of the Wild or Splatoon 2 bundles include their respective title's DLC expansions either. We're following up with Nintendo PR in hopes of finding out.

Also on September 28, three new New Nintendo 2DS XL handhelds are launching, each for $150. The new handhelds come in purple and silver, black and turquoise, and orange and white. Each one comes with Mario Kart 7 preinstalled as well.

Nintendo also announced 22 new games coming to Switch over the next several months. The most surprising among them is Into the Breach. Previously a PC exclusive, this turn-based strategy game is one of our favorites from 2018, even scoring a 9/10 in our review. You can buy it right now for $15/£11.39 on the Nintendo Eshop.
