Launch En

We hope you're ready to catch 'em all, because today marks the launch of Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire in Europe. It's a fantastic game — as you'll know if you've already checked out our review — and will ensure that the 3DS ends 2014 on a high.

To mark this momentous occasion we're giving away 3,000 special demo codes for those who fancy trying the game, but aren't quite ready to lay down the monies for the retail edition.

About The Special Demo Version:

This demo starts in Mossdeep City, and below is Nintendo's official description of why you should be excited about this download.

The Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire features gameplay that you won’t experience anywhere else. During the course of this early adventure, you are likely to encounter familiar Pokémon that can now Mega Evolve. What's more, this Mega-Evolved Pokémon can be brought into the full Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire games. Reward items obtained during the Special Demo Version adventure can also be brought into the full game.
