With news emerging last week of UK video game retailer – GAME – distributing not 1 but 3 legendary Pokémon in the weeks to come, it comes as a surprise to hear of them playing it cool with fans of Nintendo’s mega popular monster collecting RPG series again so soon. The retail gaint has today announced through their Facebook page the pre-order bonus of October’s 3DS release of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y.
Pre-orders of either game will receive the game cart holder replicated the series’ iconic item – the Pokéball – sporting a detachable base turning the purchase bonus into a cosplayer’s dream prop.
It’s unknown whether the bonus will bounce to other parts of the world or truly be exclusive to the one chain. But with news slipping of the very same legendary distribution dates mirroring over to Gamestop stores in the U.S. it’s anyone’s guess as to whether the perk will serve as the game’s early selling point the world over, or just a deal GAME managed to worm themselves into.
