With new Pokemon games come a massive amount of Pocket Monster pre-orders, and Nintendo is rewarding those who jump into the remastered Hoenn early with some pretty cool bonuses.
IGN reports those who pre-order Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire at the Nintendo UK website and at GAME stores in the UK (sorry, not in America yet folks) will receive a steelbook case of whatever version is pre-ordered. A picture of its interior is provided above and its exteriors are pictured below. These look exactly as you'd expect steelbook cases to look: sleek, shiny, and awesome. Each case also comes with a key ring figurine, Primal Groudon for Omega Ruby and Primal Kyogre for Alpha Sapphire, also pictured below.
While we haven't received confirmation that these pre-order bonuses are coming to Stateside yet, precedent says that we should expect at least the figurines. Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver, the last remastered Pokemon games to come out, came with figurines of Ho-Oh for Heart Gold and Lugia for Soul Silver for all who pre-ordered them, so why wouldn't that happen again now? We'll keep an eye out for any official announcements and report them as soon as we find out.
Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will launch November 21 for Nintendo 3DS.
Just make sure you wake up on time to get Ruby and Sapphire, unlike that lazy kid, Ash.
