Today is a big day! ORAS is finally released, two special 2DS models are up for grabs, there are Shiny Beldums about, and Super Smash for the WiiU is here. Massive amount of additional information and pictures inside.
ORAS is finally upon us, I’m sure the best Pokefans have already pre-ordered their game copies. We’ve been reporting on ORAS for a long time now so there isn’t too much left to say other than to enjoy your journey back to Hoenn! We hope to have a walkthrough ready to go as soon as we can
Announced Nov. 11, 2014, Nintendo introduces Crystal Red and Crystal Blue Nintedo 2DS systems. Today, November 21st, these two new 2DS systems models will be at a suggested retail price of $99.99 each, $20.00 less than the MSRP of the regular 2DS models. November 28th, UK only, Omega Ruby will be bundled with ‘Transparent Red’, Alpha Sapphire will be bundled with ‘Transparent Blue.’ (The term “crystal” is used for the US 2DS and the term “transparent” is used for the UK 2DS).
The Crystal Red and Crystal Blue systems are launching alongside Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, the next great Pokémon adventures coming to retail stores, Nintendo.com and the Nintendo eShop at a suggested retail price of $39.99 each.
The Nintendo 2DS system plays all Nintendo 3DS games in 2D, is backward compatible with a huge library of Nintendo DS games and also offers the ability to download games from the Nintendo eShop. The system maintains many of the same hardware and connected features as Nintendo 3DS such as touch-screen controls, StreetPass, Miiverse and online multiplayer functionality. Without any hinges, Nintendo 2DS is an affordable, durable gaming system and offers a great entry point into the Nintendo hand-held experience.

Take a gander at these two new gorgeous systems:
Don’t forget to take down a SHINY BELDUM as you pick up your copy of Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire! Shortly after the launch of these two games today, a special Shiny Beldum holding its Mega Stone will be available. If you raise this silver beauty right, it should then evolve into a Shiny Mega Metagross! Beldum is already super difficult to get so don’t miss out on this chance. This giveaway will be available via Nintendo Network from November 21, 2014, through next year January 14, 2015.
Helpful Hint: Because ORAS comes out today, mostly world-wide, Nintendo Network servers might be overloaded and may not run as well. If you plan on getting the game via eShop or downloading Beldum today, it might fail loading or load slowly; don’t worry just be patient, if it doesn’t load right away, come back later and try again.
