Nintendo Announces Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

/ May 8th, 2014 No Comments

Pokémon Omega Ruby

Nintendo revealed the two latest Pokémon titles for the Nintendo 3DS and 2DS. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will launch on Nintendo’s portable platforms sometime in November.

[adsense250itp]Details on the Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are scant. The two games are remakes of Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire. Ruby/Sapphire released back in 2003 on the Game Boy Advance. Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire gives newer Pokémon fans the opportunity to play and enjoy Ruby/Sapphire’s storyline.

To herald the announcement of these new titles, Nintendo released a teaser video. The video revealed little aside from packaging shots of the games and the release window. Of note, though, is that like Pokémon X and Y, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are getting a worldwide release this November. Fans should expect some details on the two titles during Nintendo’s digital E3 presentations.

For more on Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, stay tuned to Gaming Illustrated as more details emerge.

Quick Take

This is a surprising and not so surprising announcement on Nintendo’s end. The company’s recent report of major losses for the last year’s fiscal period between both the Wii U and 3DS means they have to be aggressive moving forward. A remake of Ruby and Sapphire is a bit of a curve ball. However, it is not shocking since Heart Gold/Soul Silver did extremely well for them and a remake is much easier than producing a new title so soon after X and Y. With little more than packaging shots to go by, it remains to be seen exactly how much of the improvements the series enjoyed in X and Y will benefit Omega Ruby and Alpha Silver. If anything, these two games will make the Pokémon Bank much more enticing to fans.
