Pokemon Black & White Get Soft Release Date

Friday, Nintendo announced release dates and legendary box art for their next iteration of the ubiquitous Pokemon series for North America and Europe.

The new monsters gracing the box art will be Reshiram on Black and Zekrom on White.

Managing Director of Marketing and PR for Nintendo Europe, Laurent Fisher commented on the universal-reaching series:

It’s rare to find a franchise with such worldwide appeal and dedicated fans as Pokémon.We’re excited to inform our fans that this eagerly anticipated adventure, featuring an all-new generation of Pokémon, will be available in Europe in spring 2011.

Since their release, Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver have sold more than 8 million copies across the world, while the entire franchise has registered over 207 million sold since it was first launched in 1996. With new games on the horizon and Nintendo’s new 3DS being announced at E3, the Pokémon trend doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon.
