Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, the GameBoy Advance third-generation titles, will be remade for 3DS in the form of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
The games will release worldwide this November, and much like Heart Gold, Soul Silver, Fire Red and Leaf Green before them, will add many new features to the games, bringing them more up to date.
You should expect to see the same 3D visuals from Pokémon X & Y, and they’ll hopefully improve on some issues with the frame rate and visuals, as that was quite disappointing. There’s no gameplay footage, and the trailer above just shows tentative box art, so it seems quite strange announcing the games just a month before E3.
I’m definitely interested in these – I’ve never fully completed Ruby or Sapphire, and it’s the only generation I really felt as though I missed out on. It does feel like quite soon for a remake, but should tide us over until the next new Pokémon title in 2015.
