@MarioRedfield:

I used to have a 3DS, but I gave to my sis when she broke hers after playing too rough with Smash Bros. Yeah, she tends to break her handheld games when she's in the moment. How's the demo?

new story content for the remakes

The Delta Episode -- an entirely new story unseen in the original versions of Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire -- has been revealed for Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. The Pokemon Company has also revealed fourteen additional legendary Pokemon coming to the 3DS remakes.
The Delta Episode explores the history of the Hoenn region, diving 3,000 years into the past to uncover the mysteries of Mega Evolution. The story introduces us to Zinnia, a new character "who bears a certain destiny," according to the games' official website. Players must travel around Hoenn to defend the region from an approaching asteroid. The story will culminate in a cosmic clash between, recently revealed, legendary Pokemon Mega Rayquaza and Deoxys.
In addition to the new story, fourteen more legendary Pokemon have been confirmed for Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire: Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Uxie, Mesprit, Azelf, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Tornadus, Thundurus, Landorus, Cresselia, and Heatran. These Pokemon will only be available in Mirage spots, and are said to hold valuable items. It's noted that these Pokemon will vary based on which version of the game you're playing.
Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will be available in North America and Australia on November 21, and in Europe on November 28. For more on the games, head over to IGN's wiki.

@Acura_Max:

Thanks for the news. It's great they added more to the remake. That's a ton of legendary Pokemon for this game. I recall the Rayquaza and Dexoys visual is a homage to the movie where Rayquaza kept stalking and attacking Deoxys, not out of its free will.

@Acura_Max: @takashichea: Next Friday needs to be here already. The Delta Episode sounds like it could turn out amazing.

@Bigheart711:

@MarioRedfield: @takashichea: @Bigheart711: Reviews are out for Alpha Sapphire!

IGN

As a 3D remake, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby do a fantastic job of reintroducing Hoenn. Little details, like characters turning their heads to look as you pass or flocks of Wingulls flying overhead, make the region really come to life, and small updates and tweaks help make the journey smoother. Still, a few of its flaws are even more glaring in 3D, especially the excess water Pokémon and often dull navigation of their habitats.
7.8/10

GamesRadar

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire remain faithful to what made the GBA originals great. The new features are strong, but some of the progress made by Pokemon X&Y has also been undone.
4/5

GameSpot

Yes, its the same game we've seen before, but that's not a bad thing when the core concept is so engaging and rewarding. Your dedication to the cause makes the difference between becoming a good trainer or the best trainer, and while some people may end their journey once the story concludes, there's a wide variety of Pokemon to capture and raise, and potentially thousands of opponents waiting to put your Pokemon skills to the test.
8/10

JoyStiq

This is a larger, more detailed world than the series has ever seen, and thanks to a swath of subtle improvements, exploring the Hoenn Region is more satisfying and rewarding than it's ever been. Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire do little to overhaul the major pillars of a series that's long relied on the same set of classic ideas, but they don't have to. The core mechanics of Pokemon remain immensely addictive, and Game Freak's latest coat of polish only enhances an already captivating adventure.
4.5/5

Destructoid

Although X & Y did an admirable job when it came to transitioning the Pokémonseries onto the 3DS, to me (other than the graphics) it seemed like the same formula from 1998 with a new coat of paint. However, this entry feels like a true next-gen title, with all the charm of the Pokémon franchise and just the right amount of features and complexities to have players journeying through Hoenn for years to come.
9/10

@Acura_Max:

I forgot publishers and reviewers get the game early than us fans. Thanks for the reviews. I try not to look because I want the surprise.

I don't expect the game to be different since Nintendo has always been conservative with their formula. A new Zelda and Pokemon game won't be different. The whole marketing strategy, how you say, "Don't Fixed if it is not Broken.

Got kids at Church and little siblings who are still into Pokemon. Uncle Taka has to deliver the goods.

Edit:

I don't like IGN's review of the game. They complain about too much water and HMs which is weird. The game focuses on Team Aqua (if you have Sapphire) and HMs that explores the depths of water. Of course, there will more HMs. I realized X and Y only 5 HMs or less.

BigHeart711 has the game. From his status bar, he has 5 badges so far. I know a lot of my folks who aren't Anime Vice are tweeting about the new game.
