New Shades of Pokémon, in 2011

I’m just catching up with Nintendo’s buzz about confirmation that Pokémon Black Version & Pokémon White Version are heading to North American DS owners, along with a bit of art for new legendary Pokémon Reshiram and Zekrom.

When the games were originally announced for Japan there were plenty of people expressing surprise that the new titles would be hitting the DS rather than the platform we’re only a little over two weeks away from seeing – though that probably had more to do with disappointment rather than surprise.

Based on the title of this post you can probably conclude that I’m more surprised that the date for their arrival is a year from now, in Spring 2011, but I suppose we don’t have to worry about overdosing that way. All I know is that this is still a far cry from the Pokémon MMO I want.

While I ponder that, you can catch Reshiram and Zekrom after the break, along with a trailer for PokéPark Wii: Pikachu‘s Adventure – the minigame filled Wii title recieved a European release date of July 9, 2010 yesterday.

  1. PokéPark should be seen at the Nintendo E3 conference for release soon after.

    My guess is the new Pokemon game will be “3DS enhanced” as it happened with Link’s Awakening DX when played on the Gameboy Color.
