HeartGold and SoulSilver are still the rage amongst Pokemon gamers, but Nintendo isn’t letting Pikachu and crew rest. In Japan today, the company announced that a new main entry in the series is being developed for DS psp games.
By “main entry,” we mean a game in the line of titles that includes Red & Green, Gold & Silver, Ruby & Saphire, and Diamond & Pearl. The new game is set for Japanese release this year, meaning it will come four years after Diamond & Pearl’s original release over there.
Nintendo did not share details on the game today, only hinting that it would have new Pokemon, take place in a new region, and feature new gameplay concepts.
But with the announcement out of the way, and with a 2010 Japanese release, expect to start hearing details shortly.
