Pokemon Scarlet and Violet getting new physical release with Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC
Original (9/26): Nintendo has announced a new physical release for Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet that will include The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC. It has been confirmed for Europe and Japan thus far, and presumably North America will be seeing it on the same day as well.
This is a bit of an odd move as not all of the content will be included on the cartridge. The Teal Mask is immediately accessible, but players will need to download an update for The Indigo Disk. It’s unclear why Nintendo and The Pokemon Company aren’t simply waiting for the second part of the DLC to ship out a complete physical version.
The new Pokemon Scarlet and Violet physical release with the DLC is due out on November 3, 2023. Those who purchase the package will be given a serial code for 100 Poke Balls as a bonus.
Update: The same package has indeed been confirmed for North America. It will also drop on November 3.
