“Pokémon Sun” and “Pokémon Moon” are slated for release in November, but aside from the new RPGs The Pokémon Company has teased about another item that fans should watch out for.
According to My Nintendo News, the Japanese marketing and licensing company for everything Pokémon took to Twitter last Friday to announce that the “Pokémon Sun and Moon” Super Music Collection is also slated for release around the same time that the two Nintendo 3DS-exclusive titles arrive.
The Nintendo-centric gaming site also noted that fans can expect each entry from the 175 tracks to cost $.99, but they can save a lot when they purchase the entire collection, which is valued at $9.99.
Interestingly, all of the tracks are inspired by the sounds of the Hawaiian Islands, and players will hear all of them as they explore the different islands of the Alola region when they play “Pokémon Sun and Moon.” Furthermore, the official Pokémon website stated that each track features enhanced sound quality.
The “Pokémon Sun and Moon” soundtrack joins the digitally remastered soundtracks of other Pokémon games that have since been made available on iTunes by The Pokémon Company.
Meanwhile, another update regarding the two upcoming games states that the Korean Ratings Board for games has already rated “Pokémon Sun and Moon,” and My Nintendo News wrote in a separate report that this could be hinting at the possible release of a demo version ahead of the game’s official November release.
Though the listing of the rating board for “Pokémon Sun and Moon” Special Trial did not reveal details about the content and release date of the demo, IGN believes that a demo for the games is seemingly on the way because it would help pique the interest of more people to watch out for the video games.
Nevertheless, the games and entertainment media company stated that there is still no evidence on the possibility that the demo would be released worldwide and that there is also no word if it would only be region-specific.
The news about the soundtrack and the demo comes days after it was revealed that Alolan Rattata, Snorlax and Munchlax have been confirmed to be part of “Pokémon Sun” and “Pokémon Moon.”
However, as previously reported, Munchlax would only be available to players as an early purchase incentive, and since this pocket monster is the pre-evolved form of Snorlax, it seems that players should indeed buy the games early on to witness the heavy sleeper’s Z-Move that was teased in the new teaser trailer for the games.
“Pokémon Sun and Moon” are expected to arrive for the Nintendo 3DS on Nov. 18.
