Pokémon Omega Ruby And Alpha Sapphire Look A Lot Like X And Y

Earlier in the week, Nintendo and The Pokémon Company announced remakes of the Ruby and Sapphire editions of the game (sorry, Emerald fans, nothing on that yet). Today, we’ve got a look at the first footage from the title.

You’ll note that the clips of the two legendary Pokémon featured (Groudon for Omega Ruby and Kyogre for Alpha Sapphire) look very similar to the aesthetics of Pokémon X and Y. Nintendo promises that these will be full re-makes, and it appears that these titles are getting the full 3D treatment.

Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire were originally released on the Gameboy Advance in November 2002 in Japan. The titles made their way to the west, starting with North America in March 2003, followed by Australia in April and Europe in July.

These remakes will be out worldwide in November. For more, check out our breakdown of the announcement trailer.

  • A definite day one purchase for me.

  • I'd like to know if there will be an Omega Emerald.
  • It's...It's...beautiful.

  • Not sure how to feel about all these pokemon remakes, but I guess it's better than a half baked attempt at something new, I just hate how Nintendo in general always plays it safe :/
  • Now I need a 3ds.

  • Whoah. Never seen kyogres mouth before.
  • It was common knowledge at the time of the announcement that OR/AS would use the X/Y engine.
  • So its only a remake? Not a sequel in hoenn?
  • They look awesome in 3D!

  • Is it just me or does the first pic on this post look like he's making a very dump smile lol?

  • I'm buying both on day one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • cool there's nothing wrong with them looking like Pokemon X and Y since the sprites in those games are awesome.
  • Looks good.

  • This makes me wish I had a 3DS.

  • I can't wait for these 2 to battle, watching in Emerald as Rayquaza quelled these 2 was amazing!!!

  • Pokémon Sapphire and Leaf Green were my childhood... and they're old enough for a remake now? Wow, now I know what all you 90's gamers feel like... OLD!
  • I like Groudon's animation in the water, hopefully we can finally solve the Diglet issue where he has ground underneath him in water.
  • sounds like a big wind, almost hurt my ears. I was using headphones!
