Updates to the official Pokémon website and social media channels have revealed that Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will be receiving new retail releases worldwide from November 3rd, bundling the original game together with The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC.

Though not explicitly stated in the English announcements, the Japanese product details for this release clarify that these new bundles include these together in a single physical cartridge, as opposed to simply bundling a digital code for the DLC with a regular cartridge. On release, players using this cart will only have access to Part 1: The Teal Mask, with Part 2: The Indigo Disk becoming available via a free update when that DLC is released.

This bundle will also include a special purchase bonus of 100 Poké Balls. It's not clear at this time if this will be distributed as a digital code for redemption, as was the case with the original physical releases of the game in Japan, or if this will somehow be included on the cart itself for all players.
