You wanted more Hoenn, now you have it.
One can never have too much Pokemon OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire footage. Especially considering just how eagerly anticipated these games have been over all these years, seeing the classic Hoenn adventures reimagined the way OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire reimagine Ruby and Sapphire just feels great.
This new footage confirms several things- it shows us just what the map of Hoenn looks like in the new games (it’s pretty unchanged, before you ask), and it also confirms that the remakes will keep the split storylines of the original Ruby and Sapphire, instead of opting for the consolidated storyline that Pokemon Emerald presented.
It also shows us what battles look like, the new character models of Brendan and May, and Kyogre and Groudon in battle. In other words, it shows us a lot, and it will probably be hard for all of us to keep our excitement contained ahead of the games’ release exclusively on the 3DS line of systems this November.
