The next round of details is expected to be announced soon for "Pokemon Alpha Sapphire" and "Pokemon Omega Ruby." According to a report from Explosion on June 6, the latest issue of the "CoroCoro" Japanese magazine should provide some new information for both 3DS titles. It should be released sometime near the end of this month. Furthermore, the next episode of the "Pokemon Get TV" show may also include some new reveals for the two remakes. The same program provided a brief look at an in-game footage that was eventually uploaded by Nintendo on YouTube.

The "Pokemon Alpha Sapphire" and "Pokemon Omega Ruby" video provided a brief look at the same graphics engine that was used for "Pokemon X" and "Pokemon Y." It shows the two legendary monsters, Groudon and Kyogre, arriving during a battle sequence and changing the elements of the environments. Players were also teased that the mega evolution feature is returning with the new designs of the creatures.

In addition to the "CoroCoro" Japanese magazine and "Pokemon Get TV," Nintendo may also use the upcoming E3 2014 event to talk more about "Pokemon Alpha Sapphire" and "Pokemon Omega Ruby." The publisher already has a big lineup of titles on display with "Bayonetta 2" as well as "Super Smash Bros 4" for Wii U and 3DS. The company is also holding a small conference for a mysterious game for the handheld system during the convention.

The remakes of "Pokemon Ruby" and "Pokemon Sapphire" are due to come out sometime later this Nov. in all major region. Until then, Nintendo still has several events set up for the aforesaid "Pokemon X" and "Pokemon Y." Last year's games managed to sold 12 million copies so far combined in less than a year with several distribution events and tournaments being planned for 2014.
