Nintendo 3DS

Pokémon Red, Blue, And Yellow Home Menu Themes Revealed


In honor of the 20th anniversary of the Pokémon, Nintendo is rereleasing Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. The company has also put together a Nintendo New 3DS bundle for North America and three Nintendo 2DS bundles for Europe. In each case, the bundles come with special Home menu themes to celebrate the series. Serebii was able to get images of the three themes.

The three Nintendo 3DS Home menu themes each correspond to one of the games. In Europe, the Nintendo 2DS bundle you purchase determines which theme you get. There are bundles for Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow, and each one has its own theme. The Nintendo New 3DS bundle in North America comes with both Pokémon Red and Blue pre-installed and includes the Red and Blue Home themes as a result. Nintendo has not said if these themes will be exclusive to the bundles.

Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow will be available on the Nintendo 3DS eShop on February 27, 2016. North America will get the Nintendo New 3DS Pokémon Red and Blue bundle and Europe will get the three Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow Nintendo 2DS bundles on February 27 as well.
