Remakes of Game Boy Advance games Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire are coming to the 3DS. The Pokémon Company announced today that Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire will arrive worldwide in November 2014, only on 3DS.

The Pokémon Company describes the games as a "fresh take" on the originals, which debuted more than a decade ago in 2003. "The new titles promise to take players through a dramatic story within a spectacular new world," the company said.

More information about Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire will be shared in the lead-up to their arrival this November. The most recent entry in the main series was Pokémon X/Y, which has now sold 12.26 million units to date.
