PSA: Pokemon Sword And Shield Will Be On Sale On Release Day

Uncategorized Admin 0

Pokemon fans, the time has come–we’re finally less than a week away from the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield, the first main-series Pokemon games to launch on a home console and one of Nintendo’s most highly anticipated releases for Nintendo Switch. The games will be available this Friday, November 15, and there’s still time to secure your copy early and get the game’s numerous pre-order bonuses.

Nintendo fans don’t usually expect to save money on a first-party Switch game when it first releases, particularly if it’s one of Nintendo’s most popular franchises, like Pokemon. But this year, Pokemon fans are in luck, as Sword and Shield will be on sale for $49.94 ($10 off) at Walmart stores on release day. This offer is in stores only, meaning you’ll need to actually drive to your local Walmart and make the purchase.

This offer was spotted by deals site Cheap Ass Gamer. According to the below photo, the double pack (which contains both games) will also be on sale, selling for $99.98 instead of $120. These discounts are basically unheard of for a new Pokemon game and we doubt Black Friday will offer anything better, so if you’re planning to get Pokemon for yourself or someone on your Christmas list, this is likely the best offer you’ll find.

A word of caution: The earlier you can make it to the store, the better, as stock may sell out quickly depending on your Walmart location.

This is only the latest in a growing list of games that received release day discounts at Walmart this year, including Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Astral Chain, and Luigi’s Mansion 3.

On the topic of Pokemon deals, you can also save nearly 50% on the collector’s edition of the Pokemon Sword and Shield: Official Galar Region Strategy Guide right now at Amazon. Normally sold for $40, the 400-page collector’s edition is currently on sale for $24.72, and it includes a special black hardcover featuring the game’s legendaries and a Joy-Con controller skin decal.
