Pokémon Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition is coming to the Virtual Console for systems in the Nintendo 3DS family! The game remains true to the original, so you can feel as though you’re experiencing it just as it was back then!
This title will be compatible with wireless communication for the first time ever when it appears on the Virtual Console. In the days of the Game Boy, players had to use a Link Cable to connect with friends, but this game will use the Nintendo 3DS system’s wireless capabilities to allow you to trade and battle Pokémon in just the same way.
Look forward to more information on Pokémon Yellow on the Virtual Console as we approach its launch on February 27, 2016!
The first enhanced sequel to a Pokémon RPG introduced a few gameplay elements, and incorporated the use of the Game Boy™ Printer.
Building on the terrific success of Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version, Pokémon Yellow Version returns Trainers to Kanto for more even more fun and adventure. Pokémon Yellow delivers a feature that hasn't been duplicated in any other Pokémon game-Pikachu actually follows you around throughout your journey!
The graphics for Pokémon Yellow are updated slightly from Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue, and you can use innovative peripherals such as the Game Boy Printer, which allow you to print out stickers of your favorite Pokémon. Pokémon Yellow also introduces challenges and battle modes that let you compete in exciting ways. There are even great Pokémon minigames to play, such as Surfing Pikachu!
