First Pokemon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire gameplay shows 3D legendaries

S. Prell, @SamPrell

The Pokemon Company and Nintendo have shared the first gameplay glimpse of Pokemon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire, the upcoming "full remakes" of Pokemon Ruby / Sapphire. According to a screengrab from Pokemon website Serebii brief trailer (posted above), the games will feature full 3D graphics similar to Pokemon X / Y. It is unknown at this time if the games will also feature X / Y's other gameplay invention, Mega Evolutions.

Like a normal evolution, Mega Evolutions grant a pokemon extra power and change its physical appearance. However, Mega Evolutions are temporary, and only last for a single battle. The Mega Evolution forms of pokemon who can utilize them are also not counted in the franchise's expansive pokedex.

We'll update as more information becomes available.

Update: We've replaced the Serebii screengrab with a (very) brief trailer showing off the monsters in motion.
