New Pokemon on the way: Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire
May 7, 2014 | By Mike Rose

Nintendo has just announced Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, the next titles in the Pokemon franchise, and a throwback to the original 2003 Ruby and Sapphire releases.

The pair of games are due for release on Nintendo 3DS and 2DS in November 2014, and apparently provide "a fresh take on Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire."

Nintendo says that the games feature "a spectacular new world." Notably, the official website for the game also suggests that the game features Pokemon characters from the recent X & Y titles, and does not stick to Ruby and Sapphire creatures only.

Nintendo has chosen to announce this new Pokemon game on the same day that it recorded losses for the last fiscal year.

Though I was hoping for a remake of Yellow, this is still a great thing to hear. Time to relive the best days of Jr High :)

Why are you reporting on Nintendo stuff, didn't your entitled editor hate them for not following him around begging him to make indie games for Wii U?

Good point, Alex. Why would a video game website publish news about video games? What really bothers me about it is how unbiased and purely factual the article is. It's like Gamasutra just reports on news regardless of their personal opinions of companies, IPs, and individuals. I hope this isn't a trend...

Am I wrong or is this the first time you will be able to port Pokemon from the original game to the new enhanced game?
Up until now all the remakes have been separated from their originals by a game generation that didn't allow forward transfers, but I would imagine that my using several intermediate games it would not be possible to chain them forward.
I don't know that there is any point, but it's kind of a neat stupid game trick.
