Pokemon is coming aplenty this year with the upcoming release of Pokemon UltraSun and UltraMoon later this year, but those looking for a blast from the past will be able to (re)experience the classics Gold and Silver in just over a week.

During today’s Nintendo Direct broadcast highlighting Nintendo 3DS and Switch titles, Nintendo announced that Pokemon Gold & Silver will release for the Nintendo 3DS eShop on September 22nd, 2017, allowing veteran Pokemon players to experience the titles once more, or give new players the chance to discover them for the very first time.

No pricing information was revealed for the ports, but it can be expected that the titles will run $9.99 each, like the eShop versions of Red, Blue & Yellow that released last year on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
