Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow Price Confirmed

pokemon red, blue, yellow

27th of Feb is the day that the original Pokemon trio of games turn 20 and they are coming to our beloved backlit 3DSes. My advice, never underestimate the power of a backlight.

Nintendo have told us how much Red, Blue and Yellow will set us back and it is £8.99. More than I thought but understandable from a business view point. I honestly also was expecting Yellow to cost more so that’s a positive.


You may say no £8.99 is way too much for an old Gameboy game, but let me tell you, my first ever play through of Pokemon back in the day took 70hours to beat the Pokemon league. Also would you rather play your old cartridge on a non backlit screen or the backlit beauty that is the 3DS? The more I think of the pros and cons of sticking with the old cartridge vs. downloading it on the eShop the more I think £8.99 is not a bad deal. Especially as cartridges go for £20 on Ebay.

Will you be downloading Pokemon on the 27th Feb?
