Pokemon celebrates its 20th anniversary with a New 3DS bundle and a Super Bowl ad

  • 8 years ago
In 1996 Nintendo released a pair of games about catching and battling monsters, and two decades later it's now one of the biggest entertainment franchises around.
To mark the 20th anniversary of Pokemon this year, the Pokemon Company has announced a number of upcoming promotions, starting with a Super Bowl ad that will air during the game on February 7th.
While we don't know what the ad will look like, it appears it won't be promoting a specific title; instead the Pokemon Company says it "will encourage fans to ‘train on.'"
Then, on February 27th, a special edition New Nintendo 3DS bundle will launch, which will include two changeable faceplates featuring art from the first two games in the series, Pokemon Red and Blue.
