Pokémon HeartGold and Pokémon SoulSilver will be making an English-language debut in Spring 2010 in America, sadly no news of an official UK release date just yet. The games update the original Game Boy adventures that were released nearly a decade ago where players got to explore the scenic Johto region. This time out, all the visuals have been given the Nintendo DS makeover, making the beautifully detailed locations really come to life. With updated sound and of course touch-screen features now included too, along with a bunch of surprises that Nintendo is keeping to itself right now, we’re all in for some brilliant gameplay action!
“Announcing these much-anticipated game launches at The Pokémon World Championships allows us to give the news directly to the legions of fans who represent the true heart and soul of Pokémon,” said J.C. Smith, The Pokémon Company International’s director of marketing, who made the announcement on stage to kick off the 2009 Pokémon World Championships. “We want to thank these loyal fans by revealing the details to them first.”
Look forward to bringing some of the most beloved Pokémon characters back in to action again next year – Pokémon fans are going to love both releases!
