Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Dual Pack Announced

Jonathan Higgins

It may not be anything close to the Limited Edition Steelbook versions of Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire that were announced for the UK at the end of August, but Nintendo of America does have something to offer for fans that want to pick up both games.


The “Dual Pack” announced this morning will be priced at $79.98 and will feature both games, as well as an in-game bonus. It will be available at Best Buy in-store or online, as well as Amazon.com. The bonus comes in the form of 100 Potions.


Here“s the full Press Release:


REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Fans who want to pick up both the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire games when they launch for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on Nov. 21 now have access to a special offer. The Dual Pack launches on Nov. 21, exclusively at Best Buy retail stores, on BestBuy.com or on Amazon.com at a suggested retail price of $79.98. Separately, each game sells at a suggested retail price of $39.99. The Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Dual Pack includes both games, letting players experience both adventures (not to mention the ability to capture both Legendary Pokémon).


In addition to both games, the Dual Pack includes a pair of in-game download codes that can be redeemed for 100 Potions each. Starting a new Pokémon game with 100 extra Potions is a treat for players who want to be well-stocked for their epic journey through the Hoenn region.


Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are reimagined versions of the original Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire games, which launched for the Game Boy Advance system in 2003. Not just simple remakes, both games offer updated graphics and new features like Soar, which allows players to travel on the back of Mega Latios or Mega Latias. Players can also decorate their personal Secret Bases and enter Pokémon into in-game Pokémon Contests. Fans may even learn the mysterious origins of Pokémon Mega Evolutions.


Both Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire will launch in stores and in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS on Nov. 21. People can also purchase the digital version of the game at Nintendo.com and have it sent directly to their Nintendo 3DS system. The Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version is also now available. Visit Nintendo.com to learn how to receive a download code.



More information about how to obtain the Special Demo Version can be found here. My impressions of the Special Demo Version are here. And last but not least, don't forget: today's the day you can visit your local GameStop to receive a special code to obtain Diancie.


Is anyone planning on picking up the Dual Pack? The price may not be reduced, but I guess 100 free Potions are good for someone, somewhere.
