It's sadly been a long time since I held a Gameboy Advance in my hand. Though the memory of my day of purchase and the long, long flight journeys we had together remain intact. Likewise, I so vividly recall the day that I received my first Pokemon game. I recollect the smell of opening the wrapping and the feeling that is brought on by the beautiful introductory music on that old console.

Now we have remakes of these old classics popping into our existence left and right. I mean from Pokemon and Silent Hill, to Metal Gear Solid and Halo, every game developer is jumping on the old remake bandwagon! Though all of which I must say I've enjoyed tremendously. Seriously you guys have to get the Halo: Master Chief Collection! But that aside, let's take a trip down memory lane and see how times have changed our old Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire!

Naturally, we are all aware that there will be substantial alterations to the gameplay and look of Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire on the 3DS. It has been reported that even if you have played the original games, you are in for a new experience with these two releases. New Pokémon and tons of new features are awaiting us!

We're receiving a whole host of new items including the Pokémon Tretta Power Strength Set, The Treat Speed Strength Set, The Pokémon Vegetable Snack Salad and the Pokémon Sprinkles Mini Pack. However, these items can only be obtained through special codes. The game also features the new PokeNav Plus! All in all, it seems we are in for quite the adventure with the new games.

Naturally though, the written word isn't going to give you the full impression of the changes in store for us on come November 21st! Therefore, I highly suggest you check out the video below to see just how far the game has come! Nothing like a bit of good old fashioned nostalgic indulgence.

If you're looking forward to Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, then let us know in the comments. These titles really seem to be the next best thing after an entirely brand new Pokemon game, and while the latter would certainly be the preferred option, its great to see old games getting, not only a HD remake, but getting brought onto our new console packed full of new features for fans both old and young!
