The Pokémon Company, GameFreak and Nintendo are proud to announce the launch of the latest pair of Pokémon games (Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon). Both of the new games will cost you $39.99 to grab a copy. Both games are also available in both physical form and in digital download format via the Nintendo 3DS eShop. The press release highlights a number of new features in these games, and also points out this brand new trailer celebrating the launch of these two games:

 

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon tell a new story. Dark, ominous clouds begin to spread as the secrets of Necrozma and the Alola region are finally revealed. They were never disclosed in the previous games. Trainers will also encounter new Pokémon that were not seen in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, as well as some new ultra beasts. There are new areas to explore, like Pikachu Valley. Players can eventually ride Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo and Lunala to pass through the Ultra Wormhole to the worlds beyond it. During their travels, players will also discover the new Z-Power Ring, allowing them to use a wide variety of new Z-Moves.
You can’t find out more about both of the new games at their website.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
