Best Buy has revealed a new pre-order bonus for Doom Eternal. If you reserve the game, you’ll receive the steelbook pictured above.

Note that the steelbook seems to be for something like a CD or Blu-ray rather than a Switch game cartridge. With that in mind, it has a metal exterior and has artwork on the exterior and interior.

You can pre-order Doom Eternal on Best Buy here. Those that reserve the game will also be given $10 in Best Buy credit.

Best Buy has started taking pre-orders for the next round of Smash Bros. amiibo. Pichu, Isabelle, and Pokemon Trainer can be reserved here. All three are scheduled for July 26.

Best Buy will be giving consumers an opportunity to go hands-on with the Nintendo Labo VR Kit. On April 14, stores across the United States will be holding a four-hour demo event.

You can see if you have a participating store nearby here. The event will be held between 10:30 AM and 2:30 AM local time.

Persona 5’s Joker will be added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as the game’s first DLC pack character within the next month. Despite that, we’ve yet to get a full look at him. Nintendo hasn’t shown a single screenshot of Joker or even a look at his render.

Now fans think that Best Buy may have provided a first look. In the retailer’s latest ad, the image above is included. That does look like a possible render and could be a look at how Joker will be released in amiibo form.

In any case, Joker is coming to Smash Bros. Ultimate very soon. Let’s hope that Nintendo will be sending out assets not too long from now.
