23rd September 2014 – As anticipation mounts for the release of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire on 28th November, Nintendo has today revealed upcoming hardware offerings for Nintendo 2DS that present new designs for the system.

On 7th November, both Nintendo 2DS Transparent Red and Nintendo 2DS Transparent Blue will release in Europe, presenting the hardware in new eye-catching forms. Aside from the side panelling, both offerings are transparent in design, revealing the skeleton of the system underneath both the front and back of the system casing.

From 28th November, and to mark the launch of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, two new bundles incorporating the upcoming Nintendo 2DS hardware designs are set to release:

  • Nintendo 2DS Transparent Red + Pokémon Omega Ruby includes: a Nintendo 2DS Transparent Red system plus a copy of Pokémon Omega Ruby pre-installed on a 4GB memory card.
  • Nintendo 2DS Transparent Blue + Pokémon Alpha Sapphire includes: a Nintendo 2DS Transparent Blue system plus a copy of Pokémon Alpha Sapphire pre-installed on a 4GB memory card.

Following on from the announcement of the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version, Nintendo UK has also today confirmed the distribution mechanism for how fans can get hold of the Special Demo Version in the UK from 15th October.

The Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version will be available in the UK from GAME, Amazon, Smyth Toys, ShopTo and the Nintendo UK Official Store from the 15th October until launch.*
