It’s not as nice as that boxed version that came with a Monado red Classic Controller Pro that our friends overseas got, but if you’re in the US or Canada and would like to buy Xenoblade Chronicles AND get a black Classic Controller Pro, you’re in luck!
For $64.99, you can get this limited edition bundle, straight from Nintendo.com’s web store. You’ll save $5 on the cost of buying them separately, which I guess you can spend on snacks or a drink or something, which you’re going to need if you’re going to play the Chronicles as hard as I will.
The bundle begins shipping on April 6th, so you won’t get it on launch day. But hell, if you’ve been waiting for it as long as the rest of us have, unsure if it’d even see the light of day on this side of the world, what’s a few more days, right?
You can get the standard edition from Nintendo.com right here if you’d like. Ships on April 6th. Pre-orders at Gamestop will score you a free bonus artbook. And there’s an intent-to-purchase survey up at Club Nintendo for you to fill out, if you’d like some bonus coins. April’s coin-redeemable games are out, too, but none of them really seem that exciting (pun intended), especially since Xenoblade comes out this week.
Hang in there, gang. It’s almost Reyn Time.
