Listed as a $90 savings. I know both games are often on sale, but I don't think I've seen them this cheap together before.

What a weird combo, you an find both for this price separately but nice to have a bundle.

 

Don't get the physical of Starlink though, get the digital deluxe. You get all the ships with the digital copy but have to buy the physical toys if you have the physical game for the rest. Not worth it after buying all the toys.

It’s a weird pairing but amazing deal. I purchased. It’s basically like a BOGO.

The price breakdown. Tax will vary of course. Mario Rabbids: 21.40 Starlink: 10.70. You can’t beat this deal if you are remotely interested in either game.

Considering they are both Ubi games it's not that strange.

I'm in for one. I totally missed that great amazon deal where you got starlink for free with the credit offer. I wonder how it works to return one of the games and not both.

Helluva deal, but I agree that the digital version of Starlink seems preferable here.  What's the cheapest the digital deluxe version has been?  PSPrices only seems to list the base version.

I picked up Starlink for about $18 on a Target deal a while back, but never actually got around to playing it. I really just wanted the Arwing though and just traded the game into Gamestop to take advantage of the extra $5 deal.

Psprices is the worst “tracker” out there, the only tracker that works is dekudeals.

$40+$24 for the digital deluxe of both.

I also agree the deluxe of Starlink is best, you have to get the toys.. and put them on the controller once every 7 days to use them..

Thanks for this. I thought my GCU was cancelled because yesterday I went to a bb store and my GCU wasn't applying to a clearance game I wanted, then today with this bundle I was like WTF!! Is going on!

Typically, the item you keep returns to normal price, and your refund is deducted from that.

 

Best case scenario, you'd get $0 back.  Worst case scenario, you'd need to pay $20 to return one game and keep the other.

Pretty sure you can mix and match between digital and physical, so buying the physical game doesn’t mean that you’re now forced to only getting the physical ships.

Besides, going physical does have some advantages - namely that it’s the only way that you can use duplicates of weapons or wings on your ship. In fact, it’s the only way that one can access the almighty (looking) “Godwing” ( https://m.imgur.com/a/gDgYWAD ) in the game. Plus, if you wanted to ever get the PS4 or Xbox One version (as they have better graphics/performance), then you’d already have all the ships and weapons available to you.

I love both games, this is a great deal. I mean Mario alone is usually around that price, so your getting starlink for like $5

Its an awesome game, and i love playing with the toys....and i don’t care if I’m 30....its fun!

Starlink is a little mindless but I enjoyed it.  Running around completing various tasks on the planets was a great time waster when I was traveling and the Starfox version doesn't add a ton mission wise but hard to imagine this game being anywhere near as good without that addition. 

 

I got the physical version for like $8 at target and then bought the first DLC pack (don't need the 2nd at all).  You don't need all the extra DLC, really if you just had a good sampling of weapon types you can do most everything in the game, but the game's difficulty curve is way higher if you only have the two base ships to swap out should you die.
