Nintendo: Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, Omega Ruby are 'full remakes'

Nintendo's surprise reveal of Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Pokemon Omega Ruby was a bit vague to say the least. The company described the 3DS games as a "fresh take" on Game Boy Advance entries Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire, while a brief press release mentioned things like a "new adventure" and a "spectacular new world."

So, just what are these games? Step in Satoru Iwata to clear things up, or at least a little bit. In today's financial briefing, the Nintendo president described the games as "full remakes," which at least removes some of the confusion if not a lot of it.

Otherwise, details are as sparse as they were yesterday. At least we do know Nintendo's releasing both games worldwide in November this year.
