Pokemon Legends: Arceus

Another pre-order bonus for Pokemon Legends: Arceus has been revealed, this time coming from Amazon UK. The retailer is actually providing a couple of gifts. In addition to a steelbook, all buyers will receive a ball cartridge. Both items can be seen above.

Outside of Amazon, the UK My Nintendo Store is also looking to entice fans with a Pokemon Legends: Arceus pre-order bonus. Fans will be provided with the steelbook plus a figurine of Arceus, one of the stars of the Switch game.

We still have a few months to go until the launch of Pokemon Legends: Arceus, but the game is now up for pre-order on the UK My Nintendo Store with bonuses.

Fans will be supplied with not one, but two special items. Along with a steelbook, a figurine of Arceus will be provided. These bonus items are subject to availability while supplies last. If you already pre-ordered from the UK My Nintendo Store, your order will be automatically upgraded.

We’ve had a couple of major looks at Pokemon Legends: Arceus thus far. Our first glimpse at the game came back in February as part of the initial reveal. Then just this week, another trailer arrived with a look at gameplay as well.

It’s unclear how many Pokemon will be included in Pokemon Legends: Arceus. But based on what’s been shown and said thus far, we’ve compiled an initial list.

Here’s the full lineup:

After last week’s Indie World Showcase, another Nintendo-related presentation took place this week with Pokemon Presents. There were no brand new game announcements, but we pretty much knew that was going to happen going in. However, we did get a look at some big upcoming Switch games.

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl took up a good chunk of the broadcast complete with a new trailer and gameplay. Pokemon Super Contests are back as Super Contest Shows, players can socialize with others around the world in the Union Room, and it’ll be possible to customize the gameplay experience with Capsule Decoration.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus closed things out with a lengthy trailer and overview. Gameplay information was shared and new creatures were revealed: Wyrdeer, Basculegion, Hisuian Braviary, and Hisuian Growlithe.

Other games were covered as well such as Pokemon Unite and Pokemon Cafe Remix. We have the full recap here.

Now that this week’s Pokemon Presents has aired, how are you feeling about the presentation? What are your thoughts on Pokemon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl and Pokemon Legends: Arceus? Let us know in the comments below.

The Hisuian Growlithe Kimono Set will be offered to Pokemon Legends: Arceus as a pre-order bonus, it’s been announced. Players can claim the item by choosing “Get via Internet” from the Mystery Gifts feature in-game. The offer ends on May 9, 2022.

The Pokemon Company notes that it takes roughly two hours of play time to unlock the Mystery Gifts feature. A paid Nintendo Switch Online membership is not required.

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl will have an early-purchase bonus as well. We have more information about that here.
