Pokemon Let’s Go is Getting an Exclusive Best Buy Steelbook
Best Buy will be giving customers who purchase either Pokemon Let’s Go Evee or Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu an exclusive steelbook case for the game. This is a special promotion that will start Feb. 17 and last until supplies run out.
Good news is that you won’t need to buy the game twice in order to get a case for each character. Both Pikachu and Eevee are displayed on opposite sides of the steelbook, both with equally adorable art.
Of course, those who have already purchased a copy of Pokemon Let’s Go will have to buy another copy of the game if they want the steelbook. Best Buy, unfortunately, will not be selling the cases separately. Which stinks for those who want the case, but don’t want another copy of the game.
According to Serebii this is the first time these steelbooks have been offered in the US, but they actually were available previously in Japan. The case could be obtained as part of a special pre-order bonus for Japna’s 7-11 stores (yes that 7-11).
Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee both released in November last year. The two games were considered to be somewhat of a reimagining of the original GameBoy title Pokemon Yellow. The biggest difference in Pokemon Let’s Go being the removal of wild Pokemon battles.
Despite some of the core gameplay mechanics being altered both titles received a pretty positive reception. Our very own reviewer, Zhiqing Wan, gave Pokemon Let’s Go a 4.5/5, praising it for bringing the Kanto region to life on the Switch. You can read her full review here.
You can play both Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee now exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.
