Classic Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow coming to 3DS Virtual Console

Pokemon at its purest.


Pokemon fans need no longer faff about with the remakes and re-releases; the original three games are coming to 3DS virtual console.

The virtual console releases are pretty much identical to the originals, except that you don't need a Game Boy Link cable to trade Pokemon; Game Freak has built in a new online trading feature to overcome the hardware barrier.

The 1998 classics hit the North American eShop on February 27.
