The Pokémon Company International announced several new games including Pokémon Picross and the relaunch of Pokémon Red Version, Pokémon Blue Version and Pokémon Yellow Version on the Virtual Console for systems in the Nintendo 3DS family. While Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon and Pokkén Tournament were given release windows.

Nintendo will release Pokémon Red Version, Pokémon Blue Version and Pokémon Yellow Version on February 27, 2016 for the 3DS Virtual Console. And thanks to technology, players will be able to battle via wireless communication.

Additionally, the latest installment of the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series, Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, that has sold more than 13 million units worldwide is launching for Nintendo 3DS on February 19. With turn-based battles and ever-changing dungeons, players can encounter all 720 Pokémon!


Picross meets the world of Pokémon when Pokémon Picross launches in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS in early next month. Pokémon Picross will be downloadable for free and feature over 300 stages along with an advanced mode. After solving number puzzles to complete pictures of Pokémon, fans will be able to add them to their collection in the game.

And Nintendo hasn’t forgotten about giving the Wii U some Pokémon love. They also confirmed that Pokkén Tournament will see a release on the Wii U sometime during Spring 2016. In development through a collaboration with Bandai Namco, Pokkén Tournament brings Pokémon to life in a way never seen before where Pokémon move in direct response to the player’s actions while battling. Fans who purchase a first-run version of the game at retail will receive a limited-edition Shadow Mewtwo amiibo card that immediately unlocks the character in the game after tapping it to the Wii U GamePad.
