Nintendo will also give a Legendary Figurine keyring of either Primal Groudon or Primal Kyogre depending on which version of the game is pre-ordered.

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire for the Nintendo 3DS and 2DS is set for a November 21 release in North America, Japan, and Australia, and will launch in Europe a week later.

In other news, The Pokemon Company finally revealed their “shocking” news from last week.

Nintendo and Bandai Namco will be working on Pokken Tournament, a Tekken-style arcade game that is slated for a 2015 launch.

According to Bandai Namco Director Katsuhiro Harada, “Tekken characters will not be making an appearance.”

“As we’re making a Pokemon fighting action battle game, I’ve already touched on this while on the livestream, but in this game there will not be a high/mid/low guard system mechanic. Instead, we’re planning to include a new type of [mechanic].”
