Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, re-imagined versions of Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, will launch globally on the 3DS on Nov. 21, Nintendo announced today at E3.

In the game, players travel through the Hoenn region to catch, battle and trade Pokémon as they seek answers to the mystery behind Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre and their possible connection to Mega Evolutions.

Pokémon Ruby/Pokémon Sapphire, the third pair of Pokémon titles, originally launched in November 2002 on Game Boy Advance in Japan, and in North America in March 2003. It is one of the Game Boy's top-selling titles, selling more the 16 million copies of both Ruby and Sapphire.
