Pokémon Gold and Silver Coming to 3DS Virtual Console

While there were three brand new big announcements during the Pokemon Direct, there was one final reveal that made sure to stand out among the three new games. The original GameBoy versions of Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver were revealed to be coming out this year for Virtual Console on 3DS.

The two retro titles are planned to launch simultaneously in September and let fans revisit the first ever adventures in the Johto region once more. Like the first generation released on Virtual Console, Silver and Gold are compatible with Pokémon Bank, so players will be able to transfer their Johto companions to the most recent Pokémon titles.

Pokemon Gold and Silver will be released on Virtual Console for 3DS on September 22, you can check out the reveal trailer below.
