This includes the steelbook too, I guess its about £5 each as you can get the figurine if you buy from Game UK supposedly and thats £34.99

On the game website those steelbooks are £49.99 each so I'm hitting this as hot

Hmm limited edition Pokemon game? Never seen this before.

Any other stores selling this or is it exclusive to Nintendo?

Pokemon Platinum had a steel tin as well (from a HMV pre-order I believe).

Is this the 1st DS/3DS steelbook?

I can't think of any other DS/3DS steelbook so yeah, this would be the first.

Game.co.uk is also selling it for 39.99 steal book edition

Look at the price of heartgold and soul silver now, I would say this is a good investment.

Don't buy from game as you don't get the figurine, just asked live chat. What is included with the steelbook do you get the standard case as well?

Steel book edition comes in a box with the regular version. (From what I gather, the game is sealed inside the normal box and the steel book is empty inside the same package.

GAME only give out 1 figurine per order and only with the non limited versions (I know, makes sense...)

I've ordered three from the nintendo store. Asked them if they each come with a figure and they said yep

The limited edition from game comes with standard case and steel book according to live chat. Copies from the Nintendo UK store come with the following
1 x Pokémon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire Steelbook
1 x Primal Kyogre or Primal Groudon Figurine
1 x Pokémon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire 3DS game
I asked and they said I would not get a standard case as well as the steel book.

Hmm interesting. These images seem to suggest you get both esperino.com/wp-…png

A) Simply due to the thickness of that box
B) if you look very carefully at the top of the box, I'm pretty sure you can make out an image of the regular box + the steel book.

The box art on there could just as easily be used as an illustration that it does come with the game. I'm thinking of things like the OOT 3D Pre-Order box which didn't come with the game.

The figurine would also account for the thickness. But in that case why does GAME not get it?

Though I remember The Last Story limited edition came with both the steelbook and the game (I think Pandora's Tower was the same).

You could be right about it being an illustration, but seems like an unnecessary one. The figure won't be included in the box since GAME don't offer it with their limited edition (they are hardly gonna open up the boxes and actually remove it). And I'd say from the image it's roughly the size of two 3DS game boxes, so evidence certainly points towards it being packaged that way.

All in all it's not exactly that important anyway.

From the news article on the nintendo website it does state:

'' games are packaged in their standalone casing and presented alongside limited edition metallic cases'' - that to me means you get them both.

Conflicting info as according to the nintendo agent who i just spoke to it ONLY comes with the steelbook case not the original case.

''We can confirm that there is only the Steel book case that you get. The case has a slot for the game cartridge''

Maybe I'm being naive but I don't understand how they can sell the game on its own for the same price as the game (steelbook) AND a figurine? Not that I'm complaining, I've ordered both as I know my son would like the figurine and I don't want to wait too long and miss out (usually if I do this there will be a much better deal just after mine gets dispatched to me!!!).

The game on its own is RRP price for the game. Everywhere else cuts out the profit margin to be competitive on the price and so sells the game for less. Basically nobody sane would buy the game on its own for RRP.

The steelbook having the same RRP is the surprise here (Nintendo Store is always RRP and so GAME have no competition, hence both retailers the same price, Nintendo store is better for having the figurine though) but maybe that is why it is limited to a few retailers.

The steel book editions are unavailable at Nintendo store now.
However you can still pre-order at GAME but it doesn't come with the figurine.

I pre ordered the Limited Edition Sapphire from GAME and that did not get a figurine however I bought the normal Omega Ruby and did not get a figurine either... so disappointed with them

Years old thread (but pre-ordering Sun and Moon now), and yep, no figurine here either. Only reason I pre-ordered from them, bloody swindlers.
