If you’re eager to explore the Galar Region in Pokémon Sword & Shield the second they launch digitally, you’re in luck, as pre-loading has been enabled for the games. Just head on over to the Switch eShop and you can get to downloading.

Not only that but for a limited time, residents of Europe can snag a free steelbook for their non-existent game cartridge while stocks last.

It’s worth noting that pre-loads can’t be datamined, so there’s little risk of major leaks.

Pokémon Sword & Shield launch on November 15th, 2019.
