Pokemon Black and White Hitting American Shores March 6

Posted By | On 28th, Dec. 2010

What promises to be the biggest release of next year- at least commercially- is all set to launch exclusively on the Nintendo DS and DSi handheld video game systems on March 6th.

For the uninitiated, Pokemon Black and White are the newest releases in Nintendo’s long running flagship series for its handheld game systems. These represent only the fifth main installments in the series, but they have been promoted as a ‘complete overhaul and reboot’ of the traditional Pokemon conventions.

While not much is known about these games, we do know that these games feature expanded online functionality, that they have an increased focus on the story that is much more morally complex, that they feature only the new Pokemon and none of the older ones until after the Pokemon League, and that the two versions will actually differ from each other substantially this time around.

If you want to know more about Pokemon Black and White, feel free to check out our previous coverage of the titles.

In the meantime, I have a much more pertinent question that I hope you all will be able to answer- since the 3DS is due to launch in the US in March, but since now Pokemon will most likely be Nintendo’s main focus during that month, what do you think will happen to the 3DS launch? Will Nintendo push it back to April? Or pull it back to February? Or will they foolishly decide to launch both the 3DS and Pokemon in March itself? Sound off in the comments section!
