Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are 'full remakes'

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are 'full remakes' photo



Newly announced 3DS games Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are obviously tied to GBA classics Ruby and Sapphire, but what are they really? New? Remakes? Or that terrible industry word -- reimagining? 

Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata cleared the issue up in Nintendo's financial briefing. In his words:

"They are full-remakes of the Game Boy Advance Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire games."

Other than that, you're on your own, as that's all we've got for now. I'm sure we'll hear much more next month at E3.

Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire let you soar the skies & do the creep

Pokémon Puzzle Challenge coming to 3DS next month

I love Pokémon Puzzle Challenge.  I am glad that it is coming to the 3DS Virtual Console. I think I will pay $5 for it despite still having a cartridge. I probably won't bother with the code for the Special Demo Version of Ruby and Sapphire it comes with, but that's fine. It is a lovely little game. I think I will go play it right now. more
