Today at The Nintendo Show in London, Satoru Iwata unveiled the latest Nintendo handheld - Pokemon Mini. It sounds like a gimmick machine, but it really isn't. Pokemon Mini is quarter of the size of Game Boy Advance, and features a D-Pad, two control buttons, rumble and IR functions and its own cartridge slot, for which four games are currently in development. We don't know when the pint sized portable will launch, nor which games will feature, but with a name like that it's fairly obvious what a portion of the games will be dedicated to. We also reckon you'll be able to nurture your Pokemon - Tamagotchi style - using the Mini, perhaps importing them from Game Boy Color and Advance games using the IR function. Multiplayer battles are also an obvious possibility, with an effective range of 1.5m for the IR. You can read more about the Pokemon Mini and the rest of the wares on display at The Nintendo Show in our full coverage... which you currently won't find anywhere else on the Net.
