Earlier this week a demo for the upcoming Pokemon remakes was announced and released in Japan and with this demo special things are going to happen that affect your full game when it releases this November. Of course when this demo was announced there was a number of people outside of Japan who were hoping this demo would arrive outside of Japan and I can officially say that it has been confirmed.
Here is all the details you need to know about the demo:
Start your next Hoenn region adventure early with a special demo version of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. This demo features gameplay that you won’t experience anywhere else. During the course of this adventure, you’ll be surprised to encounter familiar Pokémon that can now Mega Evolve! What’s more, you can bring this Pokémon into your full Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire game. You can even bring over the reward items that you obtained during your Special Demo Version adventure. Stay tuned for details on how to bring the Pokémon and items into your full game.
You can play the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version as many times as you like. Look for special scenarios that occur if you play every day.
Stay tuned for details on how to get a code that will enable you to download the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version from Nintendo eShop. Don’t miss this chance to start your adventure in Hoenn and discover Mega-Evolved Pokémon you’ve never seen before!
Here’s hoping we get the details within the next week or two.
3DS owners beware the upcoming Super Smash Brothers for 3DS could do more harm for your system then good. Earlier this week Super Smash Brothers for 3DS launched in Japan and as we know a lot of Japanese gamers have bought and are currently playing the game however they are currently experiencing a number issues with the 3DS. Now this isn’t to do with the systems inner workings it instead is the fact the game is doing harm to the circle pad, I believe this is a case of the stress a lot of players are putting on the system. According to reports this issue is mostly affecting the original model of 3DS, there have also been a few reports of similar things happening with the XL model, as it stands though there have been no reports about the 2DS facing the same issue. The problem the game is apparently causing is that the circle pad rubber top is being destroyed from over use or from rough play and has been disconnecting itself from the console. There have also been reports of the plastic part underneath the rubber component of the circle pad coming off also. So if you are planning on buying Super Smash Brothers on the 3DS heed caution and be as careful as possible with the circle pad while playing and don’t be to rough.
Of course it is a good thing these reports are coming out now so that we can be cautious with the game, however I also feel this could possibly hurt sales of the game because of this issue but only time will tell.
What news is better then Pokémon news and as it is that time of the month again we have the latest details coming out of Coro-Coro. The images suggested by this month mostly relate to Mega Evolution and in fact we have three new mega evolutions confirmed for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Coming from this month we have three very exciting Pokémon confirmed as Mega Evolutions and quite frankly before we go on I must say good job to Game Freak for improving Pokémon that needed improving and also say I think the new updated designs look really cool.
So coming from Coro-Coro this month we have confirmation of Sharpedo, Gallade and Camerupt getting a mega evolution. Mega Sharpedo has the Strong Jaw ability and Mega Camerupt has the Sheer Force ability. As it also appears we will see the trainer Wally with a Mega Gallade. Good choices, don’t you agree? They are each different and what I find funnier is that now both Gardevoir and Gallade both have a mega evolution.
By a further look at Coro-Coro this month it also appears both of the title legendary Pokémon also appear to e receiving new abilities. Apparently Primal Kyogre has something to do with spouting the brand new Land of Beginnings and Groudon with Land of Endings. Both will trigger an effect known as Strong Rain and Strong Sunlight though it’s unknown what implication this will have on gameplay. I do wonder might this be how in each game we will get new areas to visit based on how these affect add to the world when they happen. This just all leaves a lot to theorize and imagine and here’s hoping we will see the reveal of more new mega evolutions such as Slaking in the future.
You know what I think Sakurai is trying to get quite a bit of male attention in Super Smash Brothers for the Wii U and 3DS as today’s picture is quite well suggesting. While strictly Sakurai is explaining that Smash Brothers will feature some alternate costumes for Zero Suit Samus I can’t help but have my own thoughts turn towards what many males will be thinking, trust me I have read enough random game articles to know primarily that people believe that Zero Suit Samus is one of the most attractive Video Game characters constantly insinuated by the nice personality references made about the character. So here is Sakurai’s latest picture of the day for you to see and I am certain if you are a male stare at.
Pic of the day. Looking at the number of days we have left for development, it would be an impossible task to create this… That’s what I told my staff. But thanks to the determination of her female designer, these Zero Suit outfits got completed in time. From the ending of Metroid: Zero Mission, here’s Samus in shorts!
See do you see what I am talking about. I know this costume decision is strictly because of a Metroid game reference but still it is an interesting costume choice that I didn’t see coming particularly from Nintendo. I now wonder what is next?
Remastering big games is a big thing at the moment giving players a chance to replay some of their favourite experiences from over the years, on top of this it also gives new players their chance to experience the classic. According to a new rumour we are set to see a new remastered game from a past generation delivered by Nintendo next year, this rumour actually has quite a likeness to be true given the reporters past history if what they were right about this year. This is what the guy had to say
“It’s perfect to fill gaps in the line-up,” and “You’re gonna love it, but it’s a Remaster,” . This is apparently a source that has been correct in his predictions of other Nintendo titles in the past, NeoGAF credits him on predictions about Devil’s Third for Wii U as well as Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
Heres hoping that this person is correct and that a remastered classic is in the works to come to hopefully the Wii U or maybe the 3DS. Going through it my head is filled with possibilities and at the current moment the most likely candidate is Majora’s Mask and if not that a Wii or Gamecube game otherwise seem most likely as upping them to a HD game if much easier. Personally though I am really hoping this is true and it is a Nintendo 64 game as there a great library of games that I would really like to play again or for the first time, but mostly it is Donkey Kong 64 that I most hope for as that is one of the best games ever made.
Just the other day we received a sort of confirmation in regards to a small selection of mega evolutions in this case being Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino. This was found through the Korean Pokemon website but we had no idea about when the Pokemon would receive an official announcement, well as it appears Gamecon was that time but not for Mega Slowbro but instead Mega Audino and an official announcement has been released:
Today The Pokémon Company International showcased the Mega-Evolved form of Audino in a new trailer made especially for the crowds at gamescom, taking place this week in Cologne, Germany.
Audino was not known to evolve from or to any other form, so this is an interesting twist in the mysterious story of Mega Evolution.
Before Mega Evolving, Audino is known to use the feelers on its ears to tell how others are feeling or when a Pokémon Egg might hatch. It may have either the Healer Ability or the Regenerator Ability. After Mega Evolving, Mega Audino adds Fairy type to its Normal type, automatically gaining all the advantages of Fairy type. Mega Audino always has the Healer Ability.
Thanks to its improved Defense and Special Defense stats, Mega Audino can be a great support in Double Battles. It emits a powerful, soothing pulse from its body that reduces hostility in others and calms any opponent within range. Pokémon should avoid contact with Mega Audino’s new secondary feelers lest they fall into a deep sleep and become easy prey to an opponent’s attacks!
Just the other day during one of Sakurai’s picture’s of the day he showed off Mii Fighters and how they can be disguised to a minor extent as other characters, one of these characters shown was Samus an original character and Meta Knight a character that appeared in Brawl but had yet to be confirmed for the new game. However this picture did lead to speculation about Meta Knight appearing in the game and they would be correct as the official Smash Brothers website has now been updated to include Meta Knight as a returning character which for Meta Knight fans is a great thing. The one thing wonder though is whether Meta Knight will be banned once again from competition still to the day I have no clue why he was banned in the first place as he has no moves that I would classify as bad or uneven.
As it appears we have confirmation of two new mega evolutions and the latest ones are from from the Pokemon I was expecting, according to the Korean Pokemon website Mega evolutions of Slowbro and Audino are set to appear. These two Pokemon are two of the main ones I would never have expected particularly Audino. The full listing of these mega evolutions has not been given yet but I am certain this will come for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and perhaps we will see a full announcement of these Mega Evolutions during Gamescon which is already well underway so stay tuned for a proper announcement. I also imagine that in a few years time every Pokemon will be mega evolved and Audino and Slowbro to at least look cool and I look forward to any future mega evolutions to come as I imagine there are still plenty more waiting in the wings to jump into the spotlight.
Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire is out in just a couple of months and as we find out about new mega evolutions and several other things. One of the announcements made last month was about Metagross receiving a mega evolution and since then or just recently it has been confirmed that we will be playing Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire with a bonus Pokemon to have from the very beginning. This Pokemon is a shiny Beldum along with its mega stone allowing us to have ourselves a much better experience then we did back in the original games.
On top of this a trailer has been given displaying the new mega evolutions as well as how contests have changed, eve allowing mega evolution if you haven’t checked out the trailer yet here it is. Now we can look forward to future Pokemon possibilities.
Hello all it is that time of the month again which I mean in the good way it is time when the leaks come out of Japan from Japanese publication Coro-Coro and in this case the leaks have started relating to the upcoming Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire remakes Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and some more details relating to the game. Might I also add that the details presented this month have me really excited as they give me all the details I want about the game.
One of the key parts of this months announcements pertain to mega evolutions and the Pokemon that have now been announced to have these evolutions. Two of these Pokemon are ones I have been really wanting mega evolved for a few months now and I am pleased to be able to announce that mega evolutions for Salamence and Altaria have been announced and they look really cool, on top of this Lopunny the evolution of Buneary has also received a mega evolution. Mega Altaria is Dragon/Fairy type with Pixilate and Mega Lopunny who is Normal/Fighting type with Scrappy. Mega Salamence can use the ability Aerilate.
When players change Pikachu’s clothes for contests, it gets special moves. Pikachu Rock Star can use the move Meteor Mash, Pikachu Ph. D. knows Electric Terrain, Pikachu Pop Star knows Draining Kiss, Pikachu Belle knows Icicle Crash, and Pikachu Libre knows Flying Press.
Another tidbit from CoroCoro: players receive a shiny Beldum – who holds its Mega Stone – in Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire through an event. The magazine also confirms that you’ll earn special clothes for participating in contests with you meeting a Contest Idol named Lucia.
