Nintendo have announced via their website that the brand new entries in the Pokémon series will be coming to the US and Europe in Spring 2011 (about six months after the Japanese release date in September).

Also revealed on the website are the two Legendary Pokémon that the games will feature. As seen above, their names are Reshiram and Zekrom, and look, well, really similar. It’s almost as if the designers just inverted the image to create the second one. Still, there are differences, and I will defend the new Pokémon games to the end- both of these are much better Pokémon than something like Mr. Mime. I, as well as many like me, remain positive that these games will be great. It’s also nice to see that the European and US release dates are both in the Spring next year- Nintendo are getting much better at this in recent years.
