GameStop Pokemon Scarlet Violet Mimikyu Electric Tera Type distribution

There’s a new, easy way to get a Mimikyu with Electric as its Tera Type in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet as part of a distribution at GameStop.

The retailer is now offering a free code card for the games with a chance to claim the creature. Visit a local store by October 29 to pick one up for yourself. The Mimikyu comes in a Cherish Ball, has the Classic Ribbon, and is holding a Life Orb that increases the damage of all its moves at the cost of its HP. It also features the move Thunderbolt, which will receive a same-type attack bonus while Mimikyu is Terastallized into an Electric-type Pokemon.

A new buy 1, get 1 free sale for August 2023 is now live at GameStop, and a number of first-party and third-party Switch games are included.

From titles Nintendo has published, highlights include Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, Metroid Dread, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, and Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Third-party offerings include Hades, Persona 5 Strikers, and No More Heroes 3.

Switch game sale Amazon Best Buy GameStop

A number of Switch game deals are running at Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop as part of various promotions, including Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, New Pokemon Snap, Nintendo Switch Sports, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, and Yoshi’s Crafted World are currently down to $39.99 from their original $59.99 starting points. Right now you can get these deals on Best Buy here. Amazon has largely matched them as well – physical here and digital here. GameStop also has them here.

Malzeno, Felyne Malzeno Palico, and Canyne Malzeno Palamute GameStop

Original (9/6): Monster Hunter fans and amiibo collectors have been wondering when we’d be seeing the Malzeno, Felyne Malzeno Palico, and Canyne Malzeno Palamute figures in the United States. Thankfully, the wait is almost over. All of these products will be available tomorrow, September 7.

The Malzeno figure has technically been available since the rise of Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. This was included in the game’s collector’s edition. However, there’s been no way to get it individually, and the Felyne Malzeno Palico and Canyne Malzeno amiibo have thus far not been available in the United States.

Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival pre-order bonus

Those that plan to pick up Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival physically on Switch next month might be interested to know about a new pre-order bonus from GameStop.

By reserving the title at this retailer, buyers will be given a couple of enamel pins. There’s one for Don and another for Katsu. We have a look at the designs above.

Sonic Frontiers pre-order bonus GameStop

Best Buy and GameStop are both planning an pre-order bonus for Sonic Frontiers. And as it turns out, the gift is technically the same. The two retailers are providing a steelbook, though the design varies depending on the store you go with.

We have a look at the steelbook design for GameStop above. The one from GameStop can be found below.
