Pokemon Scarlet And Violet Are Getting New Physical Releases With Expansion Content

The new physical editions come with a download code for the two-part Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC and release on November 3 for Nintendo Switch.


New physical versions of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet bundled with The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC are releasing on November 3 for $95 each. The base games are included on the physical cartridges, while the DLC is included as downloadable content and requires an internet connection to access.

Preorders for the physical editions of Pokemon Scarlet + The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Bundle and Pokemon Violet + The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Bundle are available now at multiple online retailers.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet originally launched in 2022 for Nintendo Switch, and mark the ninth generation of Pokemon games. They introduced players to a host of new Pokemon, including the starter Pokemon Fuecoco, Sprigatito, and Quaxly. They are notable as the first mainline titles in the series to feature a fully open world.

The two-part The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC expansion continues the storyline of the base games with new characters, explorable locations, and Pokemon--including the elusive Blood Moon Ursaluna and all starter Pokemon from previous generations. The first part The Teal Mask was released on September 13, while part two The Indigo Mask is planned to drop sometime this winter. Buying these new physical bundles grants you access to Scarlet/Violet and The Teal Mask, and lets you download The Indigo Disk immediately once it's available.

The physical versions of Pokemon: Scarlet + The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Bundle and Pokemon: Violet + The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Bundle both launch for Nintendo Switch on November 3. Digital bundles are available now on the Switch eShop.
