It’s been more than a decade and Pokemon games are still here. Many things have changed but those are the kind of change that we want. This is one of the reason why Nintendo thought it was necessary to give Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire the update many fans have been asking for. Thanks to the new Pokemon X and Yengine, we will to see and experience a better Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire. Of course, they are also making it exciting with many of X & Y’s unique gameplay mechanics while introducing ahost of new features all its own too. Well, I am lucky enough to experience it first hand at Nintendo’s Bay Area with its first 90 minutes of gameplay.
To be honest, the core of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire is still the same as it was in the original games. But because we now live in a much advance system following the success of X and Yworld, the game’s been updated to take advantage of the features that generation introduced. So for example, you’ll now acquire the Exp. Share item after saving a scientist early in the game, which will allow you to easily level up your entire Pokémon team, as compared to the slower-pace of the original release. But perhaps the biggest addition is that Mega Evolutions, which were first introduced in X & Y, not only are now a part of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire–including brand new Mega Evolutions– but it now even continues their story from X & Y, as you’ll now explore their mysterious origins.
The very obvious difference is the display after all Ruby & Sapphire originally came out in a single-screen world. The remake takes full advantage of the 3DS’s touch screen to provide support throughout your adventure. Of course, this is nothing new if you’ve played any of DS Pokémon games, but www.pokemonomegarubyrom.net and Alpha Sapphire takes it a few steps further with the addition of 3 different Nav devices: The AreaNav, DexNav, and Buz zNav–the first two of which you’ll gain access to early into the adventure, before the 1st gym. They take up residence on the right side of the touchscreen, allowing you to cycle between them with ease simply by tapping them.
The AreaNav is basically a more in-depth map, detailing points of interest for each area, such as stores and Pokémon centers, as well as streamlining that travelling process, allowing you to fly to any city you’ve already visited simply by tapping its location it on the touchscreen. Then there’s the BuzzNav which provides you with updates of things happening in the Hoenn region, such as clues as to where you might be able to find certain Pokemon. But the DexNav is where things really get cool, as this basically makes it waaay easier to find Pokémon. Essentially, any time you encounter a new Pokémon, the DexNav will display where you can find that same time by displaying its silhouette over nearby grassy regions on the map.
If you are already pretty hyped up with all the information that you have learned today, you might as well try to experience the game yourself with the demo version that has bee released earlier this month or you can just pre-order the game from your the official online stores or from the local shop near you, and pretty much play the game as it will released soon.
