Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire demo: First Impressions
I was lucky enough to get a download code for a demo to the upcoming game and I was really excited to test it out. It offered a brief glimpse of the baddies and the allies, also hinting at a much expanded offering of Mega-evolutions. It also comes with a small bonus. You can move a Glalie, Megastone in hand, to the full game when you get it. All in all, it was quite short, and remained very similar in style to it's predecessors, X and Y. That's not to say that there weren't any improvements though. Here are a few things I noticed:
-More detailed character sprites, including facial expressions and body movements.
-More detailed battle backgrounds
Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will release in North America on November 21. Also, don't forget to stop by Gamestop between now and November 16th to pick up a free code to receive Diancie in Pokemon X or Y. This pokemon is only available through special events and can't be found in game! And for those interested in the card game, Phantom Forces, a new set of cards, dropped earlier this month. They introduce Mega Manectric-EX and Mega Gengar-EX.
