Couldn’t wait for Pokemon Crystal? You’ll be pleased to know you will be able to pre-load the game on the 3DS eShop from January 8, 2018.
Although the date is only announced for Japan, we’re expecting pre-load to go live in North America and Europe around the same time. In addition, the Pokemon Crystal Special Packaging Edition that will be available exclusively in Japan will also begin pre-orders from January 8. We’ll give you a heads up when that happens.
