Pokemon Omega Ruby And Alpha Sapphire Footage To Debut In Japan This Sunday

By Ishaan . May 9, 2014 . 8:30am

Earlier in the week, Nintendo and The Pokémon Company announced Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire for the Nintendo 3DS, but didn’t show any footage from the two games. That will be changing soon.


Serebii.net reports that Japanese variety show Pokémon Get☆TV will debut the first footage from the two remakes in Japan this Sunday, May 11th, at 7:30 JST.


This sounds like a big deal, so we wouldn’t be surprised if this footage were also to be released in North America and Europe the same day. In the last year or so, The Pokémon Company has been making an effort to make their major reveals simultaneously worldwide.

  • Postnjam

    Sunday will be awesome, Game play of pokemon and going to see The wind rises!

  • Son of a Smooosh

    Gen 3 is my second favorite (my actual favorite being 2), so I’m really pumped for this. Can’t wait to see how Hoenn looks in 3D.

  • Spider-Man

    It’s HAPPENING!! Time go by faster…hurry…

  • VenerableSage

    It would be nice if everything ELSE was worldwide, though. *coughcoughstillwaitingonallofthosedistributioneventscough*

    • AuraGuyChris

      We’d get like eight different Pikachu with different sucky movesets from the anime.

      • VenerableSage

        Hasn’t happened *yet* with X/Y.

        But, NA is missing the following (all serial code):
        12 Free Quick Balls
        “CoroCoro” Charizard (Charizard w/ Charizardite X for Y, or Charizardite Y for X)
        Electabuzz / Magmar (EU)
        (technically) Movie Darkrai (though, I’ll give this one more time)
        Wobbuffet (Tretta)

        Plus a veritable handful of Pokemon Center distribution events (Scizor (different than the Walmart one), Gengar, and the Eevees or Pikachu (pretty sure it was a 1-off, random draw as to which one you got?)).

  • Byron Kerrison II

    I would like to see these two titles on the Nintendo E-shop.

  • celery

    [hypes into the stratosphere]

  • Firion Hope

    If it’s not released in the same day (or even if it is but delayed) I think I’ll just find a way to watch it anyway ;)

  • Makoto Yuki

    Just give me the Mega Milotic already!

    • wububu

      Yes please!!

    • I say no and for good reason. For one, how can you make “true beauty” even more beautiful? Second, I think they would make it look ugly trying to be bad ass.

      • Ferofax

        …but what if Milotic’s Mega form turns her into a bipedal babe Sea Goddess?

        Imagine all the freakouts.

        • ……….I’m imagining something else right about now.

  • Kai2591



    • MrRobbyM

      You missed out on a lot of good GBA games :/

      • Kai2591

        haha true. but hey I was a wee lil’ lad back then who didn’t know any othe games but Pokemon haha!

        • Raul Indries

          Well, Pokemon games are awesome. But you must try Golden Sun and Megaman Battle Network.

  • Hexodious

    I wish other companies would do simultaneously worldwide releases. But then again they don’t have that big of a budget like Nintendo or have big name franchises like Pokémon to make the risk worth while.

    • subsamuel01

      Even Pokemon did a simultaneous release for the first time with X and Y, I doubt other’s will follow the trend though.

  • NintendoPSXTheSecond

    Diamond and Pearl came out in 2006. It’s 2014. In 8 years we’ll see a Diamond and Pearl remake on the 4DS.
    Sinnoh Confirmed.

    • chroma816

      Wouldn’t it be 2016 that we see remakes, considering that that would be 10 years from release?

      • NintendoPSXTheSecond

        Ruby/Saphire came out in 2003, we didn’t get remakes in 2014 did we?
        Anyways it was more so just an ironic joke lol

  • I’m fine with the first footage to come off of Pokémon GetTV or whatever they want to call it now, but if they want to release footage and info worldwide, please do another Pokémon Direct.

    • Yeah, a direct makes much more sense if they’re trying to distribute worldwide.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I really want to see mega Sceptile:Dragon grass *4 ices weak to lce? who cares lol

    • mike dickson

      I was thinking mega serperior would dragongrass with contrary instead sceptile

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        Sceptile learns more dragon moves then Serperior

        • mike dickson

          Doesn’t he learn dragon claw and D pulse if so serperior will be no different since he learns dragon tail and dragon pulse

          • Raul Indries

            Sceptile can also learn outrage.

          • mike dickson

            So can serperior they can both learn 4 dragon moves in the long run they’ll both be awesome as dragongrass

  • Will have to see that when its shown

  • Jonah Paley

    Can’t wait to see Hoenn in 3D! Also can’t wait to hear the trumpets once again.

  • Arizato

    I swear to god… If they changed the protagonists appearances too much I will cry. May is the best pokegal!

  • J_Joestar

    Even if they don’t immediately release the footage worldwide, with the modern day internet, it’ll probably be world wide within the hour anyways.

  • Slickyslacker

    A Mother’s Day special, eh…

    • As a mom that hopes to get her baby into Pokemon, that’s a pretty nice mommy’s day gift from them~.

  • Charles

    Sunday? That’s too far away!

  • mike dickson

    Come on Sunday hurry up I’m getting excited mega swampert with mold breaker

  • grevlinghore

    2014 confirmed to be a fantastic year for gaming. Project Beast hinted at. The Last Guardian hinted at for E3 at long last. Pokémon R / S remakes. Sonic Boom has some potential. Mario Kart 8. Smash Bros… I´ve even seen some really interesting indie-games lately. This French team of 15 has apparently fleshed out an impressive looking RPG called Shiness, and there´s something like an Alaskan game about Eskimos… Plenty to be excited for, and I´m sure that´s not nearly all of it!

  • Ni ~Algidus~
    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      Brenden: …….time to get the fuck out of here!

  • I’m really hoping we get a Mega Sceptile/ Mega Swampert; it’d be pretty unfair for only Blaziken to get it.

  • Wouldn’t this be tomorrow in US since, Japan is technically a day ahead?

    Like Saturday 6:30 PM EST? (for me)

  • exrazer

    My mothers day present to my mom is showing her this footage.

  • ネオフォトン ~ Neo

    So basically a day and 2 hours~ It’ll be 6:30 PM EST for those in NA.

  • Surgeon of Death

    WELP IT THAT TIME AGAIN. Who needs a ride?

  • RebelliousTreecko

    It’s gonna be around 5:30 pm my time. Can’t wait!

  • I liek Mudkipz.

  • Rita Tong




  • TerrenceEncore Jones

    I hope they show Mega Starter evolutions. If this game is just going to be a straight-up remake with the N3DS look then I will have to pass on this. I hope there will be a lot of new things to make this game worth getting. I still have my old Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, no need to buy the same game a 4th and 5th time LOL
