Nintendo president Satoru Iwata adds further confusion to the mix.
After its recent financial report, Nintendo revealed that it was bringing Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire to the 3DS which serve as “fresh takes” on the Ruby and Sapphire games from the Game Boy Advance era. Of course, there was some confusion as to what this could mean, since the company also promised a “spectacular new world”.
In a recent company investor briefing, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said that these games will be “full remakes”. Again, it’s fairly open to interpretation at this point but we can at the very least expect some revamped visuals. Mega Evolutions are confirmed at the very least, so we can look forward to some features from the recent Pokemon X&Y.
Nintendo also revealed that Pokemon X&Y which released late last year managed to sell 16.22 million units worldwide. Japan sales contributed to more than 5.44 million units (and counting). Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire releases for the 3DS in November.
