Amid more disappointing reports of Wii U sales, Nintendo released some exciting news for its popular 3DS line of handhelds.

"Pokémon Ruby" and "Pokemon Sapphire" -- which were originally released in 2003 for Game Boy Advance -- are being remade for the 3DS and 2DS as "Pokémon Omega Ruby" and "Pokémon Alpha Sapphire." The new games are set to be released in November.

The news hit Pokémon's website and social pages May 7.
