Nintendo Direct - 3DS Pokémon Re-release

During the November 12 Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced that they would be releasing Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow on Nintendo 3DS. The games will be releasing on February 27, as a celebration of the anniversary of the originals’ release in Japan and the 20th anniversary of the franchise as a whole.

The new versions of the games will also include the ability to use the multiplayer features, namely trading and battling, over the 3DS wireless capabilities.

    And still no release of Pokemon Green in one of the original forms of the original games. Convenient

      We need Pokémon Green!

      Honestly, we aren’t missing out on Pokemon Green. Its just our Blue Version with worse sprites and a less stable code.

    I wonder if they could somehow have these games work with the Poke Bank.
