A soundtrack album for Pokémon Red and Green is to release on April 27th. The four disk album will feature the original Red/Green soundtrack (45 tracks), all 151 original Pokémon cries, Pokémon FireRed / LeafGreen soundtrack (73 tracks), three bonus tracks, and Pokémon Red/Green best selection (10 tracks).

The album will also come with a booklet including an interview with Junichi Masuda, who composed the soundtrack. You can head over to Amazon to preorder the soundtrack now!

It has now been over ten years since the release of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red/Blue Rescue Team, and now these two games are coming to the Wii U Virtual Console in Europe. Red Rescue Team originally released for Game Boy Advance, and will cost £6.29 on the eShop. Blue Rescue Team originally released on DS, and will be available to purchase for £8.99. Both versions will be available on the European eShop tomorrow (February 11th). There's no word on Pokémon Mystery Dungeon coming to North America, but we'll be sure to keep you updated.

Back during the days of console mascots, Sony had two competitors to Nintendo's Mario and Sega's Sonic: Spyro the Dragon and Crash Bandicoot. However, as Sony moved on to newer consoles, they left these two icons behind after selling the rights to these characters, which are currently held by Activision; Spyro was somewhat revitalized with the Skylanders games, but Crash hasn't gotten a new main-series title since 2008. However, if a recent tweet from one of the PlayStation Twitter accounts is anything to go by, that could change soon. Head inside for more.

In 1986, the Nintendo Entertainment System was graced with a groundbreaking game that set a new standard for fantasy and adventure games in its wake. Shigeru Miyamoto's inaugural The Legend of Zelda took players on a journey throughout the kingdom of Hyrule in a bid to gather the shards of the Triforce of Wisdom, defeat Ganon, and rescue the titular princess. With this milestone year, Nintendo is launching three new titles, and fans the world over are just as ready to commemorate the 30th anniversary of one of gaming's most celebrated franchises.

The Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra recently played a spectacular concert dedicated to the music behind video games, and one of their suites just so happens to be a 16-minute medley dedicated to the past thirty years of Zelda. Give their performance a watch after the jump!

This year, the Pokémon franchise is proudly celebrating the fact that they've been captivating players for two decades. The 20th anniversary will be marked by new game releases, re-releases of the original games on 3DS, special distribution events, and much more. The latest in a long line of festivities was revealed today when The Pokémon Company announced the Kanto Classic Online Competition.

The Kanto Classic Online Competition is an online tournament for Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire players, but it's entirely themed after the first generation. Only the first 149 Pokémon in the National Pokédex can be used (you can use Pokémon imported from other games), and battling rules will mirror those of the first generation. Anyone who manages to rank in the tournament by completing at least three battles will win a special Dragonite inspired by Elite Four Trainer Lance's Dragonite in the original games. Registration for the competition lasts from February 25th until March 3rd, and the competition will be held from March 4th - March 6th. Click below for all the details!

Shigesato Itoi spoke with Nintendo Dream at an event for the Mother series, and both parties talked about Mother 3. Included within the discussion was a conversation about messages within Mother 3, advice Itoi has for new players of the game, and a personal message from Shigesato Itoi to the fans and followers of the Mother series.

At an event for the Mother series, designer Shigesato Itoi responded to multiple questions on the development of Mother 3. He spoke about features of development from Mother 3, the cancellation of the installment for the Nintendo 64, and its revival for the Game Boy Advance. Part of the reason the game was moved from the Nintendo 64 to the Game Boy Advance was due to the fact that the concepts and vision for it became too big.

YouTube user TrackerTD has caught a possible Easter egg in the Bayonetta DLC for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. While playing as Bayonetta, triggering her forward throw attack will occasionally result in her exclaiming a particular Japanese phrase, "Juu'nen hayain da yo!" This common Japanese phrase, meaning "you're ten years too early," can be heard in her native games where she'll shout it alongside a similar move.

However, Tracker and many gamers believe that given Bayonetta's history as a SEGA property, it can also reference the Virtua Fighter series. In those games, the phrase serves as victory dialogue for the character Akira (who himself is represented in Smash through a downloadable Mii costume), whose signature move is also the same technique present in Bayonetta's forward throw. Watch TrackerTD's video after the jump for the full details.

If you don't know, Legends of Localization is a fan-book detailing the changes made during localization for The Legend of Zelda NES. We recently learned that a second book is coming, which surrounds the localization of everyone's favorite 2D RPG, Undertale EarthBound.

February 27th, 2016 marks the 20th anniversary of the immensely popular Pokémon series, but today is also a special day for Pokémon. According to a diary found in the crumbling, burned-down Pokémon Mansion on Cinnabar Island in the original Pokémon games, the legendary Pokémon Mew gave birth to Mewtwo on February 6th. In the movies, Mewtwo was cloned from Mew by a scientist named Dr. Fuji at the behest of Team Rocket leader Giovanni. In the games, Mewtwo remains one of the most devastatingly powerful and competitively popular Pokémon in the franchise. Happy birthday, Mewtwo!
