It feels like we’ve been talking about Pokémon Sun and Moon for a lifetime now, but that November 18 release date is finally on the horizon. Now, there’s news of another new release that’s coming before then, for those who may not own a New Nintendo 3DS XL at the moment or for those who have to collect every variant out there: A Solgaleo Lunala Black Edition of the handheld is hitting shelves on October 28, and it can be yours for $199, the standard retail price for the console.
Similar to the special edition Nintendo 3DS XL that was released around the time of Pokémon X and Y, the new machine features a solid-colored background (black this time) with minimal but striking outline drawings of the games’ legendary Pokémon on the 3DS’ outer shell. Depending on your situation, this might be a buy, especially for those who want to get more into Pokémon after getting swept up in the Pokémon Go mania. Actually, if that’s the case, we can’t recommend getting a console and the games enough.
Speaking of the games, and in another repeat of X and Y‘s release cycle, both games will also be available to purchase together as a dual pack, for $79.99. If you search for it on Amazon, though, you might also notice that the site has an exclusive edition of the dual pack, which comes in a “steelbook” case featuring art of the two cover Pokémon on the outside and a partial map of the Alola region on the inside.
As of right now, those appear to be all your options, so take a deep breath, and allow yourself to get swept away by how awesome Sun and Moon are shaping up to be.
