Another fan has decided to create an artwork based on the two upcoming video games, "Pokemon Alpha Sapphire" and "Pokemon Omega Ruby." According to a report from Slash Gear on May 30, a enthusiast going by the alias "Chop-StiXz" created a mockup of the special edition 3DS systems. Although Nintendo previously announced the two handheld titles, the company has not yet confirmed if the special consoles are coming out.

For "Pokemon X" and "Pokemon Y," a special 3DS system was created for each game. The limited edition red and blue consoles were released at the same time as last year's installments. It features stylized artwork based on the two cover stars, Xerneas and Yveltal. Both products were sold for $199.99, the same price tag as the regular 3DSXL. The two legendary creatures can be seen with an image from the official Twitter page of the gaming series with the photo attached near the top side of this article.

The mockup from "Chop-StiXz" follows a similar concept. He used previously-released official artworks of Groudon and Kyogre, the two legendary pocket monsters, to create stylized silhouettes of the dark red and dark blue 3DS handheld systems. You can find his designs from the Deviantart website.

Nintendo previously revealed a teaser video for "Pokemon Alpha Sapphire" and "Pokemon Omega Ruby." The short clip shows the aforementioned Groudon and Kyogre in action, possibly teasing that the two will be getting new mega evolution transformations. Furthermore, both creatures also appear to have the ability to affect the weather during battle.

More details should be revealed for the two upcoming installments leading up to release. The publisher should be showcasing the latest titles at E3 2014, which begins on June 10. The official "Pokemon Alpha Sapphire" and "Pokemon Omega Ruby" release date window is currently set for Nov. of this holiday season. Game Freak, the studio responsible for the previous mainline titles, is the main developer of both games. Both titles are up for pre-order on Amazon.com: "Pokemon Alpha Sapphire" and "Pokemon Omega Ruby."
