Pokemon: HeartGold and SoulSilver Coming Spring 2010

News from the Sync Blog at Sympatico.ca…

Pokemon HeartGold Version and Pokemon SoulSilver Version will bring players back to the picturesque Johto region, first introduced in the Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver role-playing games released for the Game Boy Color exactly 10 years ago in Japan (followed by North America and Europe in 2000 and 2001, respectively).

Little details were released, but it appears Pokemon HeartGold and Pokemon SoulSilver will be updated versions of the decade-old Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver adventures, but with improved graphics and audio, new touchscreen features to take advantage of the Nintendo DS/DSi hardware and “a host of surprises,” promises Nintendo.

Fans of Pokemon can also expect dozens of previously released characters to make its return for a new generation of players to catch, train and battle.

With more than 193 million units sold since it debuted 13 years ago, Pokemon is one of the most successful video game franchises in history. Pokemon Platinum Version, which launched in March, has already sold more than 5.66 million copies worldwide.
