Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire SteelBook edition and preorder bonuses for Europe ⊟
Though Europe gets the new ‘mons a week later than the rest of the world, if you preorder the games there, you’ll receive special SteelBook packaging, elevating you above the plastic casing plebes in other regions.
The official Nintendo UK store is throwing Primal Kyogre and Groudon figures with their respective preorders, as is retailer GAME. It looks like ShopTo is including Torchic keyrings with reservations for standard editions for the game — not sure how you get the other keyrings, but they are things that exist!
Cyber Gadget done did it again — its releasing a fresh set of Nyan silicon covers with new designs for ¥1580 (around $15) each. While they release in Japan next week, you can buy the original Nyan covers — available in White, Pink, and Black — along with Paw Pad touch pens on Amazon right now.
I neglected to mention Mega Slowbro’s existence this morning, and now Patricia Hernandez and every other Poké person has put up much better posts than I can hope to make. So, let’s just get it over with. Here’s Mega Slowbro. The creature popped up on the official Korean Pokémon website (along with Mega Audino) this morning. Its special ability is “Shell Armor.”
"It has boosted Defense and Special Attack. Energy was focused in the Shellder biting Slowbro’s tail, and the result was that the hardness of the shell increased and it became an immensely hard suit of armor that can be damaged by no one. When the battle begins Mega Slowbro uses its tail to stand up straight and it propels itself like a spring."
Mega Slowbro is super cute and super pitiful, and this Mega evolution solidifies his status as Pokémon’s Ralph Wiggum. Look at the poor fool. It can barely move in that thing. Credit to Ferrari94 for the GIF.
So far it’s only announced for Europe, but I would be surprised if Nintendo of America didn’t support such a big release with special edition hardware in the States. This bundle, which includes a pre-installed digital copy of Smash Bros., will launch alongside the 3DS game in Europe on October 3.
MONOPOLY: THE LEGEND OF ZELDA [GameStop Exclusive Edition]
Do you like having friends? People you can trust and count on when you need them the most? WELL, NOT ANYMORE! Monopoly: The Legend of Zelda is coming out September 15th and is guaranteed to break up a friendship or two! You can pre-order it now by going to this handy-dandy link. I am going to be dirt-poor by the end of this year, I just know it.
At a Nintendo shareholder’s meeting which took place last month, Miyamoto claimed “there are also secret ideas brewing for another [Legend of Zelda] series entry on 3DS” as well as “we have ideas for Nintendo 3DS which we have not announced yet, so I hope you will look forward to them.”
Could it be the Majora’s Mask remake many people have been hoping for? Many people are speculating that it might be exactly that, especially considering that Nintendo producer Eiji Aonuma hinted at such a remake last year.
