This time we will guide you to the world of nostalgic games. Game Boy Software “Pocket Monster Red / Green” released on February 27, 1996, 20 years ago. Pokémon battles and exchanges using communication cables became a hot topic and quickly became popular. After that, it was a big hit work that was converted into a series by replacing the hardware and was certified as Guinness as the world's best-selling RPG series, but the first work that can be said to be the origin of “ Pokemon '' celebrates its 20th anniversary 2016 Released as a reprinted version in 1980! Moreover, communication exchanges and battles using the latest Nintendo 3DS are possible! Let's take a look at the original works while decorating the Memorial Year!

This reprint version has been released as download-only software, and can be downloaded to the 3DS via the Internet and enjoyed. This is a software to purchase a card with a serial code called “download card” at a store, etc., connect it to the Internet and install it on 3DS. However, the package version called “Special Edition” was also released this time. This is a new package that mimics the original Game Boy version of the package.

This “special edition” is really good! The author has purchased 4 works in an impulsive manner! Of course, I have the original Game Boy version, but I'm very impressed with this mechanism! Now, this "special version" is the same as the download version, but the serial code is attached to the game, and the installation procedure from the Internet is the same as the normal version. So what's different is that the package is not only imitating the first generation, but the fans also have lots of happy bonuses. First, the town map that came with the original Game Boy version. Comes with exactly the same as the original. In addition, a seal that mimics the original instruction manual. And even a magnet that imitates the original Gameboy cartridge. It's like I bought this because I wanted it. In addition, you will also receive a voucher for a phantom Pokémon “Miu” that was not available at the time! This is pretty nice!

It's an important game, but when you download it and start it with 3DS, you can play "Pocket Monster" with that nostalgic monochrome screen. This is really nostalgic and the contents are the same as the original, so “Oh, I caught Pokemon here”. “This Jim Leader fought with this Pokémon,” revives the memory at that time. It's also nice to hear BGM clearly with 3DS. Even more surprisingly, at that time, Pokemon that exchanged and battled with friends by connecting a communication cable to Game Boy, this time it was 3DS, so you can exchange and play wirelessly as usual! I'm really happy with this. What's more, the Pokémon you get from this “reprint” can be moved to the latest “Pocket Monster Sun Moon”, which will be released on 3DS this winter, so there is also a need to collect Pokemon! Therefore, the author has been open to the latest game and has recently played this “reprint” endlessly. And in any case, I play with this hardware.

Nintendo 2DS, the new hardware that was released at the same time as this "reprinted edition", limited to stores. Integrated hardware that has already been released in Europe, etc., omitting 3D functions from 3DS. Pokemon software is already installed in 2DS released in Japan, and 4 colors are available. You can play with 3DS or New 3DS, but if you play with 2DS, you will feel like a Game Boy at the time.

The writer actually has an extraordinary commitment to the Pokemon series, not only the software of the whole series but also the games other than RPG named “ Pokemon '', figure, goods etc. have also been collected and played over the past 20 years There is a past. Even when this first generation was released, I had a gameboy pocket and a communication cable in my office, and I enjoyed exchanging Pokémon with my colleagues at night and fighting, and reviving my memories at that time. The times have changed and the hardware has changed, but this time, I realized again that “I like things that don't change the underlying part.”

It is also enviable to hear that a friend who was a student at the time is now playing with Pokemon with his child. I believe that even the latest work scheduled for release this winter will not change the fun! Why don't you enjoy Pokemon on a nostalgic monochrome dot screen while reviving memories from those days?

Celebrate the 20th anniversary with the first Pokemon figure!
