Source: http://ds.gamespy.com/articles/980/980964p1.htmlJust when you thought you couldn't possibly milk any more gameplay out of those 10-year-old Game Boy Color titles, Nintendo of Japan has confirmed that Pokemon Gold and Silver will be remade for the Nintendo DS. Renamed Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver, these new reboots to the venerable series are set to hit the streets of Japan this fall.
While there's very little information contained on the official Japanese Pokemon site regarding the content of the games, it's safe to assume that each title will receive a significant visual overhaul. We're expecting some cool new touchscreen features and new Pokemon to collect. This is one moneymaker that simply doesn't know when to quit.
Here's just a small slice of Gold's little gits.
There's currently no word on whether the Japanese versions of the games will be localized for other countries, but if we had to guess we'd say it's a dead cert.
Say what you will, the old Pokemon games were fun.
I'd like to see a Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow remake, though.
