New Pokemon dated for Japan

Importers eye September date.

Nintendo's unveiled an 18th September release date for Pokemon Black and Pokemon White in Japan.

This is the first new Pokemon for DS - excluding the remake of Gold and Silver (HeartGold and SoulSilver) - for years.

Nitnendo's sticking to a spring 2011 arrival for Black and White in Europe, but importers now have a target to aim for.

There's a brand new (Japanese) video of Pokemon Black and Pokemon White on VG247 to consider.
