Tomorrow, Pokemon fans all over the world will be able to get their hands on Pokemon Sword and Shield, which are the latest installments in the Pokemon franchise. This means that today is the final day for players to pre-purchase Sword and Shield, which will come with several pre-order bonuses. However, for players who can't decide on whether to get Pokemon Sword or Pokemon Shield, Amazon wants to make the decision easier by offering the Double Pack at a discount right now.
The Pokemon Sword and Shield Double Pack is a bundle that includes both Pokemon Sword and Shield in one single package. A day before the release of the games, Amazon is offering the Double Pack for only $99.88, which is 17% off its original list price of $120. It is currently unclear whether this price would carry over once the games are released tomorrow, but today is definitely the last day to purchase the pack and still avail the pre-order bonuses which include a download code for an in-game Gold Studded Leather Case that can be worn by the player's Pokemon Trainer.
Unfortunately, the individual versions of Pokemon Sword and Shield are not discounted at Amazon right now and are currently priced at $59.99 each. This means that players who are planning to get both games would get better value by purchasing the Double Pack at Amazon right now, which provides a total of $20 in savings.
Yesterday, Pokemon Sword and Shield reviews were released by several gaming outlets and both games got good scores across the board. Apart from the changes that were implemented as the series transitioned from the 3DS to the Nintendo Switch, the general response from video game critics was mostly positive. Although there were small aspects that could have been executed better, reviewers said that the overall experience was still enjoyable.
Pokemon Sword and Shield are set to release on November 15, exclusively to the Nintendo Switch.
