Pokemon X and Y could be followed up with a remake of the 2005 Emerald version.
The new title, rumored to be named Delta Emerald, will follow in the footsteps of the two other Pokemon remakes Fire Red and Leaf Green. Plans for a new Emerald were thought to have been canceled, but a recent IGN report points to its release still being a possibility.
The Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire versions for the 3DS will launch in November, according to an announcement from Nintendo.
"Announcing Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems! Prepare for an epic adventure exploring a world filled with Pokemon!" wrote the company.
Nintendo went on to explain the origins of the Ruby and Sapphire versions.
"Pokemon fans first enjoyed Pokemon Ruby Version and Pokemon Sapphire Version when it launched in 2004 for the Game Boy Advance. Now a whole new generation of Pokemon fans will experience the dramatic storyline that unfolds in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire," the statement read.
Another Pokemon game titled Art Academy will be available for digital download in Japan on Nintendo 3DS starting June 19.
A trailer for the game launched earlier this week and it basically shows a game that allows players to create high quality fan art. It starts out with tracing exercises and moves up to more advanced drawing and painting.
There should be more information released on Art Academy in the coming months and U.S. release should follow shortly after the initial Japan launch. E3 might be the place where that information is revealed.
