Some surprising (albeit not unexpected) news from Nintendo today: Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire will finally be getting their long-awaited remakes on the 3DS in a worldwide release in November of this year.
Almost a decade after Fire Red and Leaf Green and a few years after Heart Gold and Soul Silver, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will bring a new take on the Hoenn region. Are those Mega Evolutions on the cover for Groudon and Kyogre? Nothing’s been announced for sure yet, but it certainly seems possible.
Very little information is available at this point besides the official announcement and a brief trailer, which you can see below. Still, this means that every major Pokemon title will be playable on the DS family in some form or another, whether it’s through the GBA slot on the original DS or the newer games on the 3DS. For those who are obsessed with catching them all, that certainly is good news.
