Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow are heading to the 3DS.
It was announced that these games would be ported to the system's virtual console, as opposed to attaining physical releases, at the most recent Nintendo Direct Conference.
The news comes almost twenty years after the release of the first generation of Pokémon games. A Western release has also been announced.
The games will be loyal ports of their original releases, with the exception of communication capabilities. Instead of a link cable, trainers will be able to use wireless communications to trade and battle with their friends. It is currently unknown whether or not internet communications will be enabled too.
Japanese gamers will be lucky enough to be able to pick up a special bundle that includes a magnet resembling the original Gameboy games, as well as a manual and map for a total of 1,389¥, which translates to £7.44 in British sterling.
Nintendo Direct is an online presentation where Nintendo can present to its fans information about their games and upcoming releases, and first started in 2011. It was revealed that the virtual console ports of these games will be released on the 27th February, 2016.
