Can Nintendo please release Pokemon Red/Blue on the eShop?

#1HellsingOrgPosted 1/5/2013 2:19:45 AM
I really really want to play it again and my copy of blue is so old now that the battery died and erased my save and instead of paying to buy a new internal battery or buy a new cartridge I want to wait for a digital release version.

Any idea if they will release them?

It's called emulation. There are so many portable and non-portable options it's not even funny. You have the games already (moral scruples: satisfied) so what on earth is stopping you?

They're probably going to release to the e-shop on the 8th. That's the big announcement!

I'd prefer a Pokemon Red 3D remake with streetpass and netplay features rather than a new 6th gen game

Crystal had unused but built-in functionality to trade via the Gameboy's Infrared port. The 3DS has one, too, so maybe they could add support for that for trading and battling.

They could try trading by coding the emulator to look to the 3DS's wireless capabilities for the link. Its not impossible, but given that Game Boy games looked for the connection directly to another player before connecting rather than giving a choice of who to connect to like most modern wireless multiplayer games do, it might not work.

Also, jedinat, unless you dump the rom yourself its technically still illegal. You have the right to play your own backups, not someone else's. Just speaking in technicalities, because I do agree with you.
