Hoenn Confirmed: Nintendo Officially Announces Remakes of Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire for the 3DS

There’s not much information on the game itself, or the changes the company is making for this 3DS remake.  Most of what we have this morning in the short press release is the announcement itself, which gamers have been waiting a long time for:

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are a fresh take on Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, which launched in 2003 and were fan-favorite hits on the Game Boy Advance system. The new titles promise to take players through a dramatic story within a spectacular new world.

That’s about it.  We have our first look at the cover art and an announcement trailer (doesn’t show any gameplay though), and a vague November 2014 release date.  Doesn’t sound like a whole lot, but considering how many people have been demanding this remake, it’s enough to make a lot of fans’ day.
