Nintendo will be releasing the Switch Super Mario Odyssey Edition Bundle in the near future. The set comes with the videogame, hybrid system as well as a carrying case. With that said, it is missing a few essential components if you want to get the most out of both the game and system. Below, you can check out our buying guide for the best accessories to purchase along with the Nintendo Switch Super Mario Odyssey Edition Bundle.
About the bundle
First, let’s go a little more in depth as to what’s included in the Nintendo Switch Super Mario Odyssey Edition. As we mentioned above, the latest Mario videogame is included in the bundle. You will only get the digital version, however, as the full game download will take up free space on the flash memory storage of the Nintendo Switch.
The bundle also comes with a carrying case, which will protect the portable unit of the system in addition to making it easier to carry around. The other notable components are the left and right Joy-Cons, Joy-Con shell and system dock (this will let you connect the Switch to your television screen via HDMI).
If you haven’t done so already, you can purchase the Nintendo Switch Super Mario Odyssey Edition Bundle on Amazon with this link.
Micro SD Card
Because you will be downloading Super Mario Odyssey from the bundle, it may be a good idea to invest in a compatible micro SD card for the Nintendo Switch. This is because the Nintendo Switch only comes with 32 GB of internal flash storage memory. Due to the operating system, in addition to the aforementioned full game download of the latest Super Mario videogame, you will already take up a huge chunk of the available free space. Thankfully, you can add a lot more free space with a supported micro SD card.
We recommend checking out the SanDisk Ultra microSDHC UHS-I Cards. There are multiple size options available. If you are planning on buying a lot of games, especially digital ones, in addition to DLC, then we suggest getting one of the bigger sizes (especially with some of the recent and future Switch games ballooning in file sizes). You can check out the available options with the following links on Amazon:
- SanDisk Ultra 32 GB microSDHC UHS-I Card
- SanDisk Ultra 64 GB microSDHC UHS-I Card
- SanDisk Ultra 128 GB microSDHC UHS-I Card
- SanDisk Ultra 200 GB microSDHC UHS-I Card
- SanDisk Ultra 256 GB microSDHC UHS-I Card
amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector
While the Nintendo Switch Super Mario Odyssey Edition Bundle does come with a carrying case, it is missing a screen protector. The amFilm Tempered Glass Screen uses an ultra thin film that will protect the screen from scratches via its 9H surface hardness. The oleophobic coating will also reduce the fingerprints when using the portable unit’s touch screen. One last notable feature is that the product features 99.9 percent transparency; as a result, your image won’t be distorted when the protector is applied.
The Tempered Glass Screen Protector comes with two screen filters in addition to an installation guide, dust removal stickers, squeeze card and wet/dry wipes. Thus, you will get everything you need along with a spare protector. If you are interested, the amFilm product is available for purchase with this link.
Nintendo Switch Pro Controller
Controls are important for a platforming game such as Super Mario Odyssey. While the Joy-Cons are more than capable for making crucial jumps and other maneuvers, we recommend checking out the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.
This is because the gamepad feel more comfortable to hold, which is great if you are planning to play the latest Mario installment for hours at a time. Not to mention that it also features bigger buttons, triggers as well as analog sticks. If you are planning to play the game a lot on a big screen television set, then the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is a must have accessory to purchase along with the bundle.
You can buy the Pro Controller via this page. There are also two limited edition gamepads available, which you can check out with the following links: Splatoon 2 Version and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Version.
Super Mario Odyssey Mario/Peach/Bowser Wedding Amiibo 3-Pack
As expected, Super Mario Odyssey features Amiibo support. When scanned in, these compatible interactive figures will unlock gameplay assists as well as new outfits for Mario. Nintendo is expected to reveal more specific details about these bonus additions in the near future.
There are three Odyssey themed Amiibos available with Wedding Mario, Wedding Peach and Wedding Bowser. You can purchase the three pack via this page. You can also buy each seperetaely with the following links: Wedding Mario, Wedding Peach and Wedding Bowser.
