Arriving on September 28, 2018, these Starter Packs will all retail for $59.99 USD and each of the three game’s strategy guides are uniquely named – Super Mario Odyssey’s is the Traveler’s Guide, Breath of the Wild’s is the Explorer’s Guide, and Splatoon 2’s is the Splategy Guide.
Two of these bundles aren’t completely new as Splatoon 2 and Breath of the Wild had similar packages in the past.
In November of 2017, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Explorer’s Edition was released that included all the contents in the Starter Pack and an Explorer’s Map.
In March of 2018, the Splatoon 2: Starter Edition was released and included all the contents of the Starter Pack plus some Splatoon-themed sticker sheets.
Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild both received the elusive 10/10 from IGN and Splatoon 2 was given an 8.3/10 as it brought “the pain(t) with a great new co-op mode and the best updates from its predecessor.”
Adam Bankhurst is a news writer for IGN who bought these games on launch day so wouldn’t need these, but thinks it’s another great incentive to pick up three incredible games if you haven’t. You can follow him on Twitter @AdamBankhurst.
