Pokemon Release for 3DS, Wii or Wii 2, Set For June Unveil?

By Jamie Pert - May 16, 2011

According to a recent post on the Nintendo 3DS blog we may see a new Pokemon game for the Nintendo 3DS, Wii or Wii 2 unveiled next month, this news was originally published in a Japanese magazine called CoroCoro.

We do not have much in terms of details, however we are led to believe that the game will be unveiled on June 15th, we’re not sure how accurate this information is, therefore treat it as a rumor for now.

Pokemon Black Version and Pokemon White Version arrived in Japan in late 2010 and in March 2011 in other regions, despite the imminent launch of the 3DS the games set new sales records for the Nintendo DS, therefore the next Pokemon title will undoubtedly do well.

Nintendo 3DS Blog say that the game will be unveiled on June 15th, we find it weird that the game is not being announced at E3 2011 during the Nintendo press conference, however as this is currently still a rumor don’t be too surprised if the game gets a mention during the expo at some point.

We don’t think that the next Pokemon game will come to the original Wii, therefore we presume that it will either be coming to the Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo Wii 2 (aka Project Cafe), which release would you prefer to see?

    Well, if it’s going to be a huge success, it’s going to have to have better games than the Wii. Ninty will have to rely on third party developers to kick out some good games, as they’ll just shovel out more Mario, Zelda and Donkey Kong games that have been round the block more times than is necessary.

    We knew about this almost a month ago because Dengeki magazine posted it before Corocoro. Also we'll be getting news before next month since this months Dengeki is set to report on it.
    There are no signs it will be a wii 2 game, though its not entirely impossible. I've been translating for a long time now and you just get a sense for these kind of things. (That and the fact that back in January it was confirmed that there will be a Pokémon game coming to both Wii and 3DS and its just a wait to see which one is announced first).
