There’s little doubt that Nintendo is taking this unique time in their own history to flex their software muscle. With the release of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, the company takes the extremely well-selling Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire – originally made for the Game Boy Advance back in 2003 – and revitalizes them for the new age.
UPDATE: Have a peek at some more in-depth analysis and oddities that’ve turned up this afternoon regarding Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
If you’ll have a peek at Nintendo’s yearly financial results this morning, you’ll find that the company is doing very well in one sector: games. Software, that is – and Pokemon X / Y are pushing big numbers since inception. Nintendo is pulling out all the stops and bringing back another franchise with both Ruby and Sapphire for the Nintendo 3DS.
We must assume that these games will drive sales of the Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL as their originals were amongst the highest-selling titles for the Game Boy Advance. These titles will include whole new settings and takes on the original titles released a decade ago, breathing new life into the still-new worlds of X and Y.
These games will launch inside 2014 – right around November. This means you’ll find them in holiday socks around the world, made specifically for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
