Nintendo and The Pokémon Company announced today that new bundle packages of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are now available at participating retailers worldwide. Each contains the base game and all of the content of the Expansion Pass on one cartridge, or as one purchase if players choose to go with a digital copy. The bundles each have a MSRP of $89.99, or the same price of the game and the expansion pass separately.
This also comes with the announcement that new Legendary Pokémon have been discovered as part of The Crown Tundra, Galistrier and Spectrier. These nimble horse Pokémon help uncover more of the story of Calyrex, the poster Pokémon of the content update.
Those who pick up a copy of Pokémon Sword + Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass or Pokémon Shield + Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass (that is a mouthful!) will get everything released as part of the Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra packages. In addition, players will get 100 Poké Balls and the Pikachu and Eevee Uniforms, which were previously only a bonus for purchasing the game and expansion pass.
Galistrier and Spectrier are Ice and Ghost-type, respectively. These equine embodiments of their elements both feature new abilities that haven’t been seen before The Crown Tundra. According to the story, Calyrex defeated and then bonded with Galistrier and Spectrier, resulting in two more Legendary Pokémon, Ice Rider Calyrex and Shadow Rider Calyrex.
More information regarding these new legendaries can be found today in The Crown Tundra, the second downloadable expansion for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. It’s even easier to grab this content, as Pokémon Sword + Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield + Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass are available now as physical cartridges or as a digital download from the Nintendo eShop.
