Pokémon Crystal Will Get A Physical Release In Japan And Europe



Nintendo announced  that Japan and Europe are getting physical releases for Pokémon Crystal along with the Virtual Console version via eshop when the game releases this January.



While it technically is a “physical release” the game doesn’t come with the physical software, but a download code and a box. This isn’t the first time Japan and Europe get in on physical releases with boxed copies, as seen with Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver’s 3DS Virtual Console release back in September.


Japan will once again get several bonus items to come with their packaged version:



Cartridge-style magnet


Game manual-style stickers


Poster showing all the Johto Region Pokémon and their type affinities.

Pokémon Crystal releases on January 26, 2018 for Nintendo 3DS via eShop.
