Nintendo Formally Announces Goodies for Pokémon’s 20th Anniversary

Nintendo formally announced they are releasing Pokémon BluePokémon Red, and Pokémon Yellow for the Nintendo 3DS eShop in commemoration of the series’ 20th anniversary, according to a press release issued by the company earlier this morning. They will be available for digital download on February 27 and will cost $9.99 a piece.


On that same day, Nintendo is also releasing a Pokémon-themed New Nintendo 3DS 20th anniversary system (previously covered here) which comes with an exclusive Pokémon HOME Menu, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Red pre-installed on the system. It will retail for $199.99.

With so much Pokémon already announced this year, I wonder if Nintendo has anything else up their sleeves to celebrate one of its most storied franchise’s 20th anniversary?
