During today's Nintendo Direct, it has been announced that Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow (plus Green, but only in Japan) will be released in Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console in North America, Japan, and Europe on February 27, 2016.

The games will use Nintendo 3DS wireless communication to allow battles and trade over the local wireless connection.

Japan will receive a special bundle with a download code, magnet of the cartridge, a manual and a map for 1.389 yen.

The games will be released on the 20th anniversary of their Japanese release.
Classic Pokémon Games Return on Virtual Console!
Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow come to the Nintendo 3DS!

Next year, return to where Pokémon began with three classic games! On February 27, 2016, Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow will be relaunched on the Virtual Console for systems in the Nintendo 3DS family. The games remain true to the originals—complete with monochromatic pixel art and 4-bit background music—so you can feel as though you’re experiencing these games just as they were back then! If you've never played them before, you can join the millions of people around the world who have enjoyed these classic original Pokémon games.

After Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green, which launched in Japan, Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue launched in North America in 1998 with slightly updated graphics. In 1999, Pokémon Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition launched, featuring your partner, Pikachu, which followed you wherever you went. It also used Pikachu's distinctive cry from the Pokémon animated series.

Perhaps one of the greatest aspects of the Pokémon video game series is the use of communication features to trade and battle with your fellow players. To allow you to enjoy that unchanging part of Pokémon gameplay, when these titles appear on the Virtual Console, they will be compatible with wireless communication for the first time ever. In the days of the Game Boy, players had to use a Link Cable to connect with friends, but these games will use the Nintendo 3DS system’s wireless capabilities to allow you to trade and battle Pokémon in just the same way.

Look forward to more information on Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow on Virtual Console as we approach their launch on February 27, 2016!

I kind of like this but at the same time I somewhat don't care about it since I have a working SP and Blue cartridge. But it is cool that they included the trading and battles and make it with infrared probably.

Same for me :yesyes:
I'm happy that they announced those games for the 3DS but I hope they will sell them for... I don't know, maybe 5 euro? I bought both Red and Blue some years ago for 2 euro... XD
I still have my Red, Blue and Yellow (plus a double Red in english)

I hope there will be all the bugs we know and love XD (Missingno!!)

I don't think since those game were released physically years ago and this re-release is for those who want to play the games again on 3DS and for the ones that haven't played them at the time :yesyes:

I think the European price will be 9,99 euro... but we have to wait for the official price :yesyes:

Yes... but I think that some GameStops have it for that price :yesyes: (they have things that are valuable but sell them for nothing... for example Typing DS cost around 20 or more and I found it (new) for 5 euro...)

Please let Mew be obtainable! And plz get rid of all other glitches!! I don't wanna have to see Missingno. ever again.
I think that all the glitches will be available since it's only a re-release. The only different thing will be the link cable that will use the 3DS wireless :yesyes:
