"Pokémon Omega Ruby" and "Alpha Sapphire" Launch on November 21

Nintendo unveils new trailer for upcoming full remakes on Nintendo 3DS

Originally announced last month, Nintendo has full Pokémon remakes on the way to 3DS in the form of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. A few days ago we got an early look at its Mega Evolutions and protagonists, and now we have a specific release date.


Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will be returning to the Hoenn region on November 21, 2014. Here's the new trailer Nintendo revealed during its E3 showing:



Nintendo also confirmed the names of its cover beasts, Ruby's Primal Groudon and Sapphire's Primal Kyogre, both of which result from the recently announced Primal Reversion. Here's more on the pair from Nintendo's press release:


·         Primal Groudon is brimming with energy, which pours from its body as magma. The magma burns at such an extreme temperature that its body is always shimmering ruby red from the haze of its heat, giving off light in the darkness. Through Primal Reversion, Primal Groudon becomes much larger and adds Fire type to its Ground type, raising the power of Fire-type moves it can learn. Primal Reversion greatly boosts Primal Groudon’s Attack. Its Ability may get a boost during this epic transformation, too.


·         Primal Kyogre, a Water-type Pokémon, is awash with energy that spills from its body as seawater. Its blue skin shines like a sapphire and is half-translucent like the sea. Primal Reversion greatly boosts Primal Kyogre’s Special Attack. Its Ability also seems to get a boost, although this information cannot yet be confirmed. Primal Kyogre is massive, growing to be more than twice Kyogre’s size.
