Pokémon Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire add a space battle and a devastating asteroid

The latest trailer for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire introduces a new "Delta Episode" in which players must save Hoenn from a giant asteroid, The Pokémon Company International announced today.

Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are the upcoming remakes of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire; in addition to updated visuals, the games include new Mega-Evolutions and features. In the Delta Episode, players will learn the history of the Hoenn region and get swept up in a battle to save the earth. While they protect a research facility called the Mossdeep Space Center from Team Magma and Team Aqua, Pokémon Rayquaza and Deoxys clash in space to "determine the future of Hoenn."

The Delta Episode will also introduce "a mysterious girl rumored to possess the key to the fate of the world" named Zinnia. Check out the trailer above for a look at the new content.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire launch for Nintendo 3DS Nov. 21. For more on the series, check out our interview with producer Junichi Masuda.
