'Pokémon Sun' and 'Moon' hit the Nintendo 3DS this holiday

Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon are indeed real games and they're heading to Nintendo's 3DS this holiday season worldwide. Nintendo's announcement was short and sweet, but we know the games will feature nine language options with the addition of both simplified and traditional Chinese.

In other juicy Pokémon news, the classic installments Red Version, Blue Version and Yellow Version will all be available to download in the Nintendo eShop tomorrow, February 27th. These games will also take advantage of the Pokémon Bank, allowing players to transfer their Pokémon to the Sun and Moon games once those launch.

While there weren't many details on the Sun and Moon front, we grabbed some screenshots of Nintendo's concept art from its announcement video. Check those out below.
