From RSE to ORAS – Top Ten Wanted Improvements

Monday, June 30th, 2014

A lot of people got terribly excited when Game Freak finally went and announced remakes to the Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald games. We’ll be able to revisit Hoenn in all its watery, tropical glory on the 3DS with Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. But naturally, even in remakes there will be changes and improvements.

There’s also a follow-up article which examines which of these did improve, and more.
