We're now into November, which means that the silly-season of game releases is well and truly here; Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire will be a major part of that in the upcoming weeks when it arrives on 3DS. Hitting North America on 21st November and Europe on 28th November, Nintendo has recently talked up pre-order numbers for the re-releases — they could potentially be hugely important for the big N's Holiday season.
The hype will build, naturally, and we can expect plenty of videos and final details in the next few weeks to push excitement further. One of the former has now been released, providing a useful overview of the games and their features; there's a particular focus on new or updated features to be found in these 3DS entries.
You can see it below, and even if you're familiar with all of these details there's some attractive footage to enjoy. Are you planning to pick up either Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire, or perhaps even both? Let us know.
Alpha Sapphire for me!
So can Cosplay pikachu still use items? If so I think people are really underestimating how fun icicle crash Pikachu will be.
@epicdude12302 Ruby all the way here!
Omega Ruby for me.
Also, all of my yes to secret base sharing.
I'm surprised that I saw this on here before Serebii.
Getting both for Christmas, I suppose.
I paid off the rest of my pre-order today
If I can use the poke bank right away with this... I'll have the pokedex completed in an instant... I have all the pokemon in there starting from Bulbasaur all the way to Diance
Alpha Sapphire for me The original Sapphire was my first Pokémon game, I'm really excited. Will eventually get Omega Ruby too, I just love Hoenn.
STILL no confirmed footage of Battle Frontier. Ugh, I'll cancel my preorder if they have removed it.
Alpha Sapphire for me, can not wait! My first Pokemon game I will buy and know what I am doing (got X for free). This games looks much more rural and out of bounds than X, X had Lumoise City and all the town areas.
I got the special demo code so I will try that soon!
That video made the mystery of the mega evolutions seem like a main point of the storyline in the game so I guess thry added a lot to these remakes. I'm going go go Youtube some vids of the originals fof a better perspective.
Almost on topic - I really wish SSBU had secret bases for the amiibo to call home. Wouldnt add anything to the gameplay but I think it would help connect player and figure. My kids and I spent a lot of time decorating Sackboys cardboard cubicle in Little Big Planet and that served no purpose. But it was his home. amiibo deserve a secret bsse.
I hope that Pokebank access is blocked until you reach an in game event, but not as long as in the Fire Red/Leaf Green games. Otherwise, it takes the fun out of completing the Pokedex.
Alpha sapphire and starting my journey with treecko. Think ill keep the rockstar for my cosplay pikachu his looks awesome but the lucha with flying press is so tempting.
Omega Ruby for me. I got Ruby Version back in 2003 when it came out. I can't turn my back on it now.
Ruby was my first pokemon game. My hype level is well above anything.
I can't decide who my starter should be!
In sapphire and emerald I picked Mudkip both times, but there are so many awesome water types I could put on my team instead. And there are hardly ANY fire types in this game for some reason. I might end up with Blaziken, even if I did have him in X/Y
Scep... Sceptil... SCEPTILE?!?!?!
The games must be selling well the limited editions have both sold out! Lucky I pre orders both 🙌
My 3DS broke last week, and I don't want to send it to repairs. ;(
I'm really looking forward to these games, but since I still have don't own a 3DS I'll wait untill the new3DS comes out in Europe...
We need a Pokemon Yellow DX. Classic gameboy visuals but utilizes the second screen.
Ruby, gotta get my zangoose buddy
Omega Ruby for the wife, Alpha Sapphire for me!
Ironically I recently bought a copy of Pokemon Ruby. Oh well, I guess I'll just enjoy the original anyway.
I'll buy both Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. I cant wait! Not long to go now guys!!
@Xcape_DuCkMAN_X your wife sounds lovely
It pays to have a gaming girl for a wife, all gaming girls are lovely!!
I've pre-ordered a steelbook copy of each game, It would be good if they did re-make yellow in the new style then work on heartgold, soulsilver and so on, all in the new style, cos I'll be honest the kind of 8 bit style was rubbish. Does anyone agree?
