It's official. #Pokemon Red, Blue & Yellow will arrive on Virtual Console for #3DS on 27/02/2016! #NintendoDirectEU pic.twitter.com/2DfvTRtMg0— Nintendo of Europe (@NintendoEurope) November 12, 2015 It's been announced by Nintendo of Europe that Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow will be re-released on Virtual Console, complete with Link Cable capabilities (trading, battling.) They will be released on February 27th 2016. Who knew they'd start releasing more GB VC games after they said they weren't gonna be making more? Could Gold/Silver/Crystal show up sometime in the future as well? I think this is something people have been requesting for a while now. Re-releases of the original Pokémon games on Virtual Console with Link Cable capabilities over wireless, and they delivered. Similarly, Japan will be getting Red/Green/Blue/Yellow, and be available in a special bundle that gives you a download code + a map. Warning: Spoilers inside! ニンテンドー3DS用バーチャルコンソール『ポケットモンスター 赤・緑・青・ピカチュウ』をGB版赤・緑の発売日と同じ、2016年2月27日に配信。ワイヤレス通信でポケモンの交換や対戦が行える。#NintendoDirectJP pic.twitter.com/7G5ROhaIre— 任天堂株式会社 (@Nintendo) November 12, 2015 当時のパッケージを再現した箱に、さまざまな特典を封入した『ポケットモンスター 赤・緑・青・ピカチュウ』専用ダウンロードカード特別版も発売。#NintendoDirectJP pic.twitter.com/6jyJ0kX7PT— 任天堂株式会社 (@Nintendo) November 12, 2015 It would appear this map would be the same one that came in the boxes for the original releases of Red/Green/Blue in Japan. No info regarding North America yet (that I know of), but it's likely it will come out over here as well.
