Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow Headed to eShop, Can You Feel The Nostalgia?

Almost 20 years on from the first time we were introduced to the wonderful world of Pokemon and in many fans hearts you just can’t beat that first time. The original trilogy of Pokemon games have a great deal of nostalgic value for most Pokemon fans. They were the games where it all began and recapturing that feeling has never quite happened since despite the fact that each Pokemon game is generally always good. Well fear not, you can now relive the classics of Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow without fear of your cartridge’s internal battery having died like mine did. Nintendo have announced they will be releasing the original trilogy on the 3DS eShop with some added wireless connectivity to make up for the lack of link cable on the 3DS.

It is one of the most legendary video game series’ of all time, but all legends come from humble beginnings and there’s none more humble than the original “Pokemon Red” and “Pokemon Blue”. Despite the huge selection of modern “Pokemon” titles, the boys from SnapThirty have decided that it is the oldest of the games they’d like to, once again, try to complete. Unlike the way they would have played as kids, the boys decided to play through “Pokemon Blue” under the rules of their very own Nuzlocke Challenge. It’s much too bad they suck at playing video games together because at a short hour in their adventure must come to a close, BUT it’s not about the destination…it’s about the journey, and this journey is one that will be told through the ages as the worst Nuzlocke Challenge …
