Nintendo finally announced that the long-awaited remakes of Game Boy Advance classics Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire are en route to the 3DS. Not only do Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire exist, but they’re scheduled to arrive worldwide later this November, meaning that trainers the world over won’t be waiting too long to get their hands on the games. While the news is good, the teaser trailer announcing the titles didn’t provide fans with much in the way of gameplay details, footage or even screenshots.
The Pokemon Company may not be ready to show off the pair of new Pocket Monster titles in a grandiose fashion yet (E3 is just around the corner), but we think we have a pretty good idea about what to expect from them. There are a lot of great features that debuted in the original games that we expect to see return, but there are also a couple of updates that will have to happen to keep Ruby and Sapphire relevant to modern gamers.
