We’ve seen Pokémon announcements come in many forms since Pokémon X&Y were first announced last January, but this one came without warning. Below, you can see a YouTube teaser clip for Pokémon Omega Ruby & Pokémon Alpha Sapphire—coming to Nintendo 3DS worldwide in November of this year.

I’m sure Nintendo will announce more about these games and show footage when E3 rolls around in just a few short weeks. We have these newly announced games to look forward to, and even more to speculate for the future of Pokémon. Things are looking pretty good for dedicated fans!

Are you all excited to go back to Hoenn? Be sure to let us know!

    One of my favorite Pokemon games is being remade in 3D? Yes, I’m excited!

  • Reversehero

    Holy cow, I was just going to replay Ruby once Summer break came around.

  • Another_Unknown

    I can’t believe! We are back to Hoenn! I can’t wait to walk around littlefoot town again!

  • Vinicius

    Until now every pokemon remake had a cool extra piece of hardware, Firered/LeafGreen came with with the wirelesse adapter, Heartgold/Soulsiver came with the best pedometer ever made. What will come with this one.

  • Josh S.

    I dunno. I guess if it’s 3D and has A LOT more postgame than X and Y, I’ll be excited. A lot depends on how much extra content they push into it, IMO.

    • DigDugDude

      It’s probably going to include Battle Frontier like the originals, so that alone is quite a bit to do. Considering how much extra content was put into HG/SS, I’m sure there will be plenty of post game content to keep you busy.

  • Tyrannikos

    Time for us to finally get back to the most important part of Pokemon’s history – SECRET BASES.

  • RagunaXL

    wow, this plays into my e3 prediction quite well. I was guessing pokemon z, but this will play out much better. After these games are released, bravely second, and smash bros. there isn’t much left for 3ds. while the original Gameboy and DS had long life spans, Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance were around for just 3 years when their respective successors were announced. I think were looking at a tease, maybe a full announcement, of 3ds’ successor.

  • Vallen

    My favorite gen remade…HELL YEAH!
