BREAKING NEWS: Tomorrow is Poképalooza on the Nintendo eShop Images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS_ncpqwtEGzowmCjsb4itW_wQSVGC1U8X-6ov_9LgEwtkRt0fnIAgEX5o

Since the introduction of the Nintendo eShop, fans have clamoured for rereleases of their favourite classic Pokémon titles to play anytime. Nintendo, in conjunction with The Pokémon Company International, has declared tomorrow, April 2nd, as Poképalooza, which will finally bring over 15 games to the Nintendo eShop on both Nintendo 3DS and Wii U around the world, as well as finally establishing other long-requested consoles to the service.

For those in doubt, Pokémon Red and Blue will be included in the offerings, meaning that Nintendo 3DS owners will at long last be able to play the original adventures. They are the first games in the new 3D Classics Combo range, which include two titles in one package: Pokémon Red Version + Pokémon Gold Version and Pokémon Green Version + Pokémon Silver Version! These games are faithful recreations of the original games, complete with full link-up options including the ability to trade or battle with other owners of a game; the sequels even retain the Time Capsule feature, which can be utilised with the save file of the first game in the same package! Finally, the sequels include the female character from Pokémon Crystal Version as a player option, as well as adding a new female character in the original titles, at long last allowing for girls to not have to play as a boy.

Wii U owners will be treated to Pokémon Stadium Plus, a compilation of the first two Pokémon Stadium games for Nintendo 64, which includes full compatibility with the 3D Classics Combo titles on Nintendo 3DS. Both Stadium titles are brought to life in every detail from the originals, with everything exactly the way you remember it from childhood. As a bonus, the package includes a new Pokémon Snap title, Pokémon Snap Frontier, which provides the player with eight areas inspired by the Nintendo 64 original in which they can take photos of over 100 different Pokémon from Generations I and II. Speaking of Pokémon Snap, it is the first Nintendo 64 title to be added to the Virtual Console service on Wii U, and will be joined by two Pokémon-themed Nintendo GameCube games as well, such as Pokémon Colosseum, the first full Pokémon adventure to appear on a home console.

Finally, digital rereleases of Nintendo DS games will be added to the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS, in much the same manner as Wii titles on Wii U. The first main offerings will be Pokémon Diamond Version and Pokémon Pearl Version, the flagship games from the Pokémon franchise's Generation IV, and will retain local wireless multiplayer but not online play. A Wii game, Pokémon Battle Revolution, will also be added to the Wii lineup on Wii U, and will be fully-compatible with both the digital and original cartridge versions of Diamond and Pearl, as well as Platinum, HeartGold and SoulSilver.

A full list of releases is detailed below:

Nintendo 3DS
3D Classics Combo: Pokémon Red Version + Pokémon Gold Version (Nintendo 3DS Download)

@Zack that's because I am. Also a real direct is announced and after a "leak" one that I thought was fake! But this one seems real, if everything in that "leak" direct is true, we may see some huge changes on WiiU/3DS tomorrow. These include SNES on 3DS, GB/GBC on WiiU with Crossbuy, new eShop, Amiibo gallery, badge center, N64 VC release dates, and pre order in full on games coming months from now...
