    Welp, I never expected Nintendo and GameFreak to announce this, but here you go. Yes, this is real. I kid you not.

    Latest Nintendo News Pokemon-black-white-2

    It's coming out in June of this year for the Nintendo DS (from what I'm hearing, not 3DS). I'm unsure of whether it's supposed to be a brand new generation or just the third wheel of Black and White, but considering there's a 2, it sounds like a sequel.

    Though it was originally released back in 1996, Pokemon continues to be a favorite media franchise amongst children and some adults.

One of the most popular Pokemon mediums is a card game, which Nintendo decided to add QR codes to recently as a way to give players access...

    There is apparently a growing trend for game developers to ditch Sony’s new portable platform and invest more of their efforts in Nintendo’s 3DS, which itself had been previously neglected. This is an odd turn of events from the usual market standard, where developers start with the platform that’s released first and then move onto the next big thing. The Vita hasn’t even launched in the US yet.
