Pokémon merupakan salah satu video game yang sudah “tua”. Pertama kali dirilis pada tahun 1996, sudah terdapat lebih dari 10 video games Pokémon yang dirilis hingga saat ini.

Nintendo, melalui Nintendo Direct yang disiarkan pagi tanggal 13 November kemarin mengumumkan bahwa video game Pokémon generasi pertama yaitu Pokémon RedPokémon Blue, dan Pokémon Yellow akan dirilis ulang melalui Nintendo eShop. Versi rilis ulang ini merupakan salah satu program Virtual Console dari Nintendo yang merilis video game untuk konsol/handheld lama agar dapat dimainkan di konsol/handheld baru.

Dalam versi rilis ulang ini, terdapat fitur tambahan yaitu fitur wireless connection yang dapat digunakan untuk bertukar Pokémon dan bertarung dengan Trainer lain. Pada versi aslinya, pemain harus menggunakan GameBoy Link Cable untuk melakukan hal tersebut.

Pokémon Red/Blue/Yellow akan dirilis pada tanggal 27 Februari 2016, tepat 20 tahun setelah tanggal rilis asli Pokémon Red/Blue.


Classic Pokémon Games Return on Virtual Console!
Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow come to the Nintendo 3DS!

Next year, return to where Pokémon began with three classic games! On February 27, 2016, Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow will be relaunched on the Virtual Console for systems in the Nintendo 3DS family. The games remain true to the originals—complete with monochromatic pixel art and 4-bit background music—so you can feel as though you’re experiencing these games just as they were back then! If you’ve never played them before, you can join the millions of people around the world who have enjoyed these classic original Pokémon games.

After Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green, which launched in Japan, Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue launched in North America in 1998 with slightly updated graphics. In 1999, Pokémon Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition launched, featuring your partner, Pikachu, which followed you wherever you went. It also used Pikachu’s distinctive cry from the Pokémon animated series.

Perhaps one of the greatest aspects of the Pokémon video game series is the use of communication features to trade and battle with your fellow players. To allow you to enjoy that unchanging part of Pokémon gameplay, when these titles appear on the Virtual Console, they will be compatible with wireless communication for the first time ever. In the days of the Game Boy, players had to use a Link Cable to connect with friends, but these games will use the Nintendo 3DS system’s wireless capabilities to allow you to trade and battle Pokémon in just the same way.

Look forward to more information on Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow on Virtual Console as we approach their launch on February 27, 2016!
