Similar to the commercially successful remakes of Pokemon Red and Green released in 2004, Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen, HeartGold and SoulSilver return players to the setting of Johto, first introduced in 2000's Gold and Silver. Taking advantage of the hardware changes since then, the games feature fully redesigned environments with 3D visuals. The gameplay as likewise been upgraded with the strategic tweaks and features introduced in later iterations, bringing them up to the strategic depth of other 4th generation titles. Like the original versions, HeartGold and SoulSilver offer Red and Blue's world of Kanto to be explored fully after beating the main game. Features such as a further expanded online multiplayer support, new minigames (some using connectivity to the packaged-in Pokewalker pedometer) and new moves for existing Pokemon, the games aim to be the most robust Pokemon experience yet.
