Pokemon White logoSo much for rumors that the next DS Pokemon games would be made for the 3DS. Nintendo has announced that Pokemon Black and White are currently in development for the DS and scheduled for a Fall, 2010 release in Japan.

While the games have been formally announced and a Pokemon Black and White website has been launched, there still isn’t much solid information available on the new games. The only new pokemon that have been revealed are Zorua and Zoroark. We’ll know more soon though, as Nintendo has promised the website will be updated with pertinent information on April 15, 2010.

And yes, I’m sure it’ll receive a worldwide release. Only a Japanese release has been announced so far, but it’d be insane to think that Nintendo would actually allow a Pokemon game to remain a Japan-exclusive. After all, this is an actual entry in the main Pokemon series, not a spin-off. I figure we’ll see the translated and localized version sometime in early 2011.
