Black and White: Nintendo Announces 5th Generation of Pokemon Games

In the wee hours of some-time-last-night, Nintendo announced the fifth generation of its historically popular Pokémon games: Pokémon Black and White.

Very little is known about the new game, other than that it will be a game made for the Nintendo DS rather than the upcoming 3DS, making the DS the first Nintendo handheld to host two different generations of Pokémon in a row.  Out of a presumed hundred-or-so new Pokémon only two have been revealed; the Zorua and its evolved form Zoroark.  According to the Bulbapedia, the game will also take place in a new region. 

However, more information is promised to be forthcoming in just a few days; on April 15th via the (Japanese) launch site for the game.  The game is set to launch in Japan this fall, with the American launch expected to follow a few months later.
