Pokemon Remake Boxarts

#1 Edited by Linkyshinks (11405 posts) -

The latest issue of Corocoro Magazine in Japan has revealed the boxarts for the two upcoming Pokémon DS remakes. The covers feature, Ho-oh for Heart Gold, and Lugia for Soul Silver. Both games also feature Pokémon-themed Pedometers.

Will you be catching them?

I hope our box arts are different, because i really dont care for them. I'd rather they were more like the ones for the original release. Not going to stop me from picking the game up, but the new art just isnt as good

Yeah I'll pick up Soul Silver. I played so much Silver when I was younger.

I sure hope it isn't just the boxart that's being remade, although I have NO idea how they will (or if they will ever) manage to truly "remake" any main-series pokemon game.

I'm getting a copy of Soul Silver, it will actually be my first ever Pokemon game believe it or not. I would have got second hand original, but nobody I know plays it anymore, besides, online play and the rest makes for a much better experience.   If I like it I will get a copy of Platinum.

We had a discussion on it.  

We weren't overly keen on it.  You can use your pedometer to level up your character.  I am not going to risk being seen with a Pokemon pedometer in public  :-)

Still going to get the games though.  Oh, and the boxes are a bit bland.
