Pokemon fans rejoice! The long awaited remakes of the decade old 3rd gen titles, “Pokemon Ruby” and “Pokemon Sapphire” are finally approaching.
Pokemon just released a trailer for the Hoenn remakes entitled, “Omega Ruby” and “Alpha Sapphire” for the 3DS. The games are set to release this November. That’s only about a half a year away! The trailer did not give us any gameplay or screenshots, but we do know what the box art is for these titles. There was also text in the trailer stating that this would be a “new adventure” in a “new world”. Perhaps this is more than a remake. This could be a Ruby and Sapphire sequel and maybe it’ll be set in a new region. I know people have been expecting regular remakes just like with Fire Red, Leaf Green, Heart Gold and Soul Silver. However, Game Freak has been breaking a lot of traditions lately so these remakes may be a little different this time around. But I guess we’ll have to see.
If Nintendo is smart, they’ll wait to reveal any more information about the games. They’re going to need as much hype as possible since they are skipping the live show once again.
What do you think? Are these standard remakes, or will they truly be an all new adventure?
