A few months ago, Nintendo released the original Generation 2 Pokémon games, Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver, on the Nintendo 3DS’s Virtual Console service. Since then, a lot of people have been wondering why the third game from that generation, Pokémon Crystal, was not released with it. Pokémon Crystal had several features not found in Gold or Silver including animated sprites in battle and the option of playing as a female trainer. Well, I’ve got some great news for people who have wanted to play Pokémon Crystal on a modern system.

Today, Nintendo has announced they will be re-releasing Pokémon Crystal, arguably the best game of that generation, on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console. Here’s the official announcement trailer.

Pokémon Crystal is already out on the Nintendo Game Boy Color. It will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console on January 26, 2018.
