A fine day for Pokémon fans today as Nintendo of Europe has been busy making a few quiet announcements related to the latest games, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
First off Nintendo revealed two new 2DS designs will be making their way to Europe in the form of a transparent Red and a transparent blue console. The two will be sold on their own from the 7th of November and from the 28th of November will also be offered as a bundle with a copy of either Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. The two designs remind us a lot of the transparent cartridges that the original Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire had...
Nintendo also shared details on how they're going to handle the demo for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire in the UK. The demo won't be a straight download from the eShop. You'll first have to get a code from either GAME, Amazon, ShopTo, Smyth Toys Superstores, or via the Nintendo UK store. Once you've gotten the code you can input it to the eShop and download the demo from there.
The demo will hit the UK on the 15th of October and as previously announced any items you obtain while playing the demo can be transferred over to the full game when they're released. The demo features gameplay you won't experience anywhere else and will allow you to Mega Evolve a well known Pokémon who can also be transferred from the demo to Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
