Nintendo just announced the next release in the ever popular Pokémon series. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, remakes of the Game Boy Advance titles, will be available worlwide in November 2014.
There are very few details regarding these games other than the following statement and teaser video:
Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are a fresh take on Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, which launched in 2003 and were fan-favorite hits on the Game Boy Advance system. The new titles promise to take players through a dramatic story within a spectacular new world.
Nintendo also launched a free Pokémon TV app on iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire. It allows you to watch over 700 episodes of the Pokémon cartoon. Netflix subscribers can also stream the cartoon via the subscription service.
We all know Nintendo's profits are down and the company's future rest on key releases. With the recent Pokémon X and Y selling over 12 million copies, it's evident that this series is a major cash cow. Nintendo is clearly trying to stay "top of mind" with its fans.
Mario Kart 8 is the next key release for Nintendo and will be available on the Wii U system on May 30th. We'll see if it can bring some luck to the game developer.
