The UK Will Get The Pokémon Omega Ruby And Alpha Sapphire Demo From These Places


New Transparent Red and Transparent Blue Nintendo 2DS models are being released in Europe on November 7th. The Transparent models are exactly what they sound like—you’ll be able to see the innards of the device both from the front and back.


Additionally, from November 28th onwards, Europeans will be able to buy a Transparent Nintendo 2DS bundle with Pokémon Omega Ruby (Red 2DS) and Alpha Sapphire (Blue 2DS). The bundles will come with the respective game installed on a 4GB memory card.


Meanwhile, Nintendo UK have announced that the previously announced demo for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will be available via various videogame retailers in the UK. GAME, Amazon, Smyth Toys, ShopTo and the Nintendo UK Official Store will send demo codes out to fans via their internal databases from October 15th until launch.


Following the demo’s initial release, demo codes will also be made available through other partners like Wikia, Bin Weevils and Nintendo Life until mid-November. Finally, codes will also be available from the Pokémon stand at MCM London from October 24th – 26th.


Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will be released on October 3rd. Details on the demo version can be found here.
