That’s what you’ll probably see flooding every Pokémon-related message board on the Internet today. Nintendo and the Pokémon Company International have announced Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire will be launching worldwide for the Nintendo 3DS this November.
The “remakes” of the Game Boy Advance entries into the series will take trainers on a new adventure through the Hoenn region.
What do you think? Are you excited to revisit Hoenn? Do you think those are Mega Evolutions for Groudon and Kyogre on the covers? Will the (presumably) 3D perspective make the surfing and diving more tolerable?
