The June 6 Pokémon Direct had a few pieces of news, and they were all big. Beyond the release of Pokkén Tournament DX on the Switch – marking the first entry in the series that could be played either on a TV or on the go, we also got the announcement of revamped versions of the newest games.
Pokémon Sun and Moon will be getting definitive re-releases in the form of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon – with all-new Pokémon in each game. There weren’t many details revealed beyond that, and it doesn’t look like they will get any graphical upgrades – but new Pokémon should make this a must-buy for anyone who didn’t play the first release, or for series die-hards who truly do have to catch them all. The appearance of Solgaleo and Lunala in odd-looking armor has us asking more questions!
Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will be released on November 17 for the 3DS.
