In just ten days the original Pokémon games that started it all will be available to download via the 3DS eShop for $9.99 apiece. They’re just as you remember them, black and white pixels and all. You can still trade Pokémon locally without a cable thanks to the 3DS wireless connection. Unfortunately there’s no Internet option so you’ll have to team up with some real-life friends.
Nintendo of Europe has put up a new trailer showcasing the games. Everything should be identical for us, except both Japan and Europe are getting those really cool limited edition 2DS handhelds and we aren’t. Granted, we do get the New 3DS with the original box art cover plates and they don’t, so maybe all is fair? I don’t see why all territories can’t have it all. Which version are you buying? Let us know below.
