    First Heart Gold/Soul Silver footage appears
    Doesn't reveal too much, however.
    [​IMG]

    Some gameplay of the recently announced Pokemon Generation II remakes, Heart Gold and Soul Silver, have appeared on Japanese TV. The video shows what is presumably New Bark Town, the beginning area in Pokemon Gold/Silver, with a Chikorita following the player. If anybody was in doubt, yes, these remakes are definitely using the same engine Pokemon Diamond and Pearl used. Unfortunately, not much else is shown the video, but it's a little teaser for a game which will almost certainly be shown more in depth at E3 next month.

    LMAO, "The video shows what is presumably New Bark Town, the beginning area in Pokemon Gold/Silver, with a Turtwig following the player."

    Watttt. XD

    But about the pics...I would of prefered a really nice 2-D engine, but it's still Gold/Silver so I'll forgive it.

    Well its the game looks good so far, i woulda loved it if they changed the sprites back to the original to give G/S a older feel, hopefully there'll be a hack out for that if its even possible

    I thought it was a Turtwig. Why is it follow you anyway? I thought only Pikachu does that.

    Why would a Turtwig be following you in a GOLD/SILVER remake? And I believe it's only at specific times, as I read somewhere. Or it could be how Pikachu followed you in Yellow.

    @Teelow - I'm with you when I say I prefer Digimon over Pokemon, but I prefer the Pokemon games rather than some Digimon games. Besides the current Pokemon games which I think weren't that great.


    In any case don't expect a Crystal Remake as there was no Yellow Remake for Fire Red and Leaf Gree (Red and Green remakes) so there is no reason to make a Crystal Remake as all of the features of Crystal (and then some) are most prominently in HG/SS.

    But has anyone noticed those blue posts next to Prof. Elms Lab, they look like the ones in DPPt (the ones in some towns that connect underground I think?) that could mean that just like DPPt, there is an Underground where you can excavate fossils and other items, and possibly secret bases etc.


    Can't wait!

    I Know what you mean, digimon does have some, dare I say low quality games, but i do think they should make a Crystal and Yellow Since its like both games in one which I like ^^

    Suggestions:
    Lighting Yellow
    Yellow Stone
    Crystal Heart
    Ice Crystal
    underground excavation points - Hmmmm.. Sounds like Spectrobes >.>

    I will never understand replies like this one. The whole point of remaking the game is to bring it back with a newer look, similar to the one from the current generation. If you want the original GBC sprites, go play the original game, don't expect a hack for the remake.

    I thought this was answered with the second guy saying it was a Chikorita.

    it looks more like a turtwig to me though. but it probably is a chikorita. I want more screen shots of the game. cant wait for it.

    I'm not as excited about this game as everybody else. It seems to me like they just are taking D/P/P's engine and changing around things to match gold version. The only way this would really impress me would be if they added super detailed animations in pokemon battles. On par with the excellent animations of Dragon Quest IV and V for the DS.
