Nintendo will release Pokemon Crystal for the 3DS on January 26

3DS owners will continue to get the chance to catch some classic Pokemon games in 2018, as Nintendo has announced that Pokemon Crystal will be released for the handheld as a digital download on January 26.

Pokemon Crystal was originally released for the Game Boy Color in 2000 as an expanded and enhanced version of Pokemon Gold/Silver. The 3DS version will also be compatible with the Pokemon Bank app (giving players the opportunity to import classic Pokemon into the newer games), and players will be able to unlock the Celebi encounter after completing the game. According to Nintendo, in Pokemon Crystal’s original incarnation, Celebi could only be obtained by using a special accessory.

Pokemon Crystal will be priced at $9.99, and an Announcement Trailer has been embedded above.
