Who would have thought that the Pokemon phenomenon could have lasted for so many years, even until now? There doesn’t seem to be any end in collecting them all, and Nintendo just announced that Pokemon Black and Pokemon White will be arriving on the Nintendo DS platform on March 6 next year. Just like other Pokemon titles of yore, both White and Black versions will come with 150 new Pokemon to collect, alongside an exclusive Pokemon that will definitely have all trainers hankering after it right from the start. Nintendo also ups the ante for gamers to purchase both titles, since this is the first time that there are different areas contained in each game. The Pokemon Black game world will come with a unique metropolitan area known as Black City, while the lush, green area named White Forest can only found in Pokemon White. Apart from that, the introduction of seasons would also pave the way for you to play the game all year round, as some Pokemon are more common during certain times of the year. Hmmm, it is beginning to sound like a borrowed idea from Animal Crossing here. Either title will retail for $34.99 a pop officially if you’re interested in placing a pre-order. [Press Release]
