Pokémon Crystal is coming to 3DS Virtual Console on January 26th

When Pok√©mon Gold and Silver launched on the 3DS’ Virtual Console earlier this year, Pok√©mon fans were left wondering, “What about Crystal?” Today, that question gets an answer.

Revealed on twitter earlier today, Nintendo of America has announced that Pok√©mon Crystal will arrive on the 3DS eShop on the 26th of January, 2018. The game, which first launched on the Gameboy Color in 2001, is a fan favourite, and known for a lot of firsts ‚ÄĒ including the first time a female character was playable, the first “third version,” and the first game made exclusively to be played in colour.

The virtual console release will also come with a special surprise ‚ÄĒ you’ll be able to obtain a Celebi in-game, for the first time ever in Crystal outside of Japan. You can watch the announcement trailer below.
