In today’s Nintendo Direct, recent rumours of a new duo of Pokemon games coming this year were confirmed.
The next generation of Pokémon games, Pokémon Sun & Pokémon Moon, will be releasing for the 3DS console family in late 2016. Not much is currently known aside from the quick glances at design work for the game shown in the trailer above, but it’s been confirmed that, as a series first, these new titles will allow players to choose from nine languages to play in: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish, plus Traditional and Simplified Chinese.
In addition, it’s been revealed that the Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Red, Blue & Yellow, releasing tomorrow (February 27th) on 3DS, will be compatible with Pokémon Bank, a subscription service that allows players to transfer their Pokémon between games.
“Using Pokémon Bank, you’ll be able to transfer Pokémon you’ve caught in the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow into your copy of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon.”
The Pokémon Bank blog has, however, stated that players will only be able to transfer Pokémon from Red, Blue & Yellow in this way to Sun & Moon.
“Note that Pokémon cannot be moved directly from Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow to Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, or Pokémon Y via Pokémon Bank.”
Expect to hear more on Pokémon Sun and Moon very soon, all of which will be shared right here on Ready Up Live!
