    I have very mixed fews on this.

    On one hand, Sapphire is one of my favourite games ever, and I've probably logged more hours in it than anything else. So... Excitement!

    On the other hand, I don't see the point of this game getting remade. With Gen I and II it was ludicrously difficult to get some of those Pokemon in your Gen III game. Then with the DS and Gen IV, you could transfer all your Pokemon from Ruby/Sapphire and Fire Red/Leaf Green over and catch 'em all pretty well. The Heart Gold/Soul Silver came out and everything was simple. And on a quick eBay, I could turn up some DS/DS Lite pretty cheap, plus a copy of Emerald for nothing.

    Then again, I much prefer Leaf Green to Blue, and I loved the heck out of Soul Silver. And I'll never New Game my Sapphire ever, ever, ever.

    ...

    10/10 will buy


    EDIT: This has lead me to another question, in whether we'll get a Gen IV remake. Given Nintendo's usual backwards compatibility, the successor to the 3DS will presumably have a 3DS card reader, which on the 3DS reads DS games, as well. So, the next console could easily play Gen II-VI, and therefore a hypothetical Gen VII or VIII on the next console would have no need for a Gen VI remake. I, therefore, see a Gen I re-remake as the next remade game. Then, probably IV, II and V, depending on the format of new physical games on future Nintendo handhelds.

    NICE! :D

    I know people have been foaming at the mouth for Hoenn remakes for a while now, so I bet this was one of those 'here, now stfu' game released. :lol:

    I wouldn't mind getting my hands on this and logging some hours in on these as well. :yesway:

    Eh, I didn't like gen III. But at least this gives me a way to get Groudon + Ho-Oh without HeartGold and SoulSilver. :lol:

    Gen III was my favourite, by far. Mainly because it came out when I was like 10. I played Gens I and II, but I was still kinda too young for them to really realize how good they were. 10-11, I was old enough to really understand the games and enjoy them.

    Bring on the trumpets, Wingulls and Tentacools! And lots of surfing!

    ^ Same as above, I remember playing Pokemon Ruby the first time when I was 10 after pounding hours into crystal, turn it on and I'm like :scream: "MUUUUM! THE GRAPHICS ARE SO GOOD!!!!!"

    Gen 3 was probably my favorite because it came out when I was around 10 years old and I was starting to understand more and more about story elements. Those games just hit home for me and I'm thrilled to see the remake in action.


    Now if nintendo would listen to their Zelda demographic and finally make a Majora's Mask remake.... that'd be great.

    As someone who loved the shit out of Ruby, this'll be the first Pokemon game I buy in 12 years.

    All of this via Serebii:

    Mega Diancie's ability is currently listed as ???
    Mega Sceptile has Lightning Rod, and is Grass/Dragon type
    [​IMG]

    Mega Blaziken is the same as X/Y
    Mega Swampert has the ability Swift Swim and maintains the same typing as regular Swampert.
    [​IMG]

    Groudon & Kyogre's new "Mega Evolutions" are known as Primal/Prehistoric/Primeval Groudon & Primal/Prehistoric/Primeval Kyogre and are said to be a regression called Ancient Devolution.
    [​IMG]

    Team Magma is lead once again by Maxie, and his Admins: Tabitha & Courtney. Team Aqua is lead by Archie and his admins Matt and Shelley, all of whom have been redesigned. Like the originals the team you face varies depending upon the game.
    [​IMG]

    ---------

    I'm goin Mudkip, though Mega Sceptile is badass. And i'm an avid Team Magma fan... but goddamn Archie looks awesome. So friggin metal.

    I feel like this is going to be a huge letdown. I've been waiting for this forever, pretty much since HG/SS, and then X and Y came along and I personally hated them because of mega evolution. Now that it's in this game, I'm just selling my 3DS because I have no other games I'm waiting for.
