An official announcement has been sent out for all of today’s Pokemon news. Get the recap on Pokken Tournament DX, Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon, and Pokemon Gold / Silver on the 3DS Virtual Console below.

Pokémon is making its way to Nintendo Switch later this year with Pokkén Tournament DX. Including all the content from both the Wii U and arcade versions of Pokkén Tournament, Pokkén Tournament DX introduces an array of exciting new features to create the ultimate Pokkén experience. Features of Pokkén Tournament DX include:

Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver are joining the 3DS Virtual Console in September. To celebrate the announcement, a new trailer is online. Watch it below.

Pokemon Gold / Silver are heading to the 3DS Virtual Console. Announced during today’s Pokemon Direct, the two games will be available on September 22.

Remakes are a well-known part of the Pokemon franchise. New titles are produced regularly, but older ones are visited fairly frequently. Fans might be interested to hear that Game Freak remains interested in this.

Series producer Junichi Masuda told IGN:

“I think the remakes, like Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen, is still an approach we’re interested in. With the Virtual Console releases of the original games, specifically there had never been a way to bring those Pokemon over to the latest generation. It had always been that you couldn’t get those Pokemon out.”
