Multiple Pokémon Gray and 3DS hints turn up

Thursday, 5th January 2012 04:16 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The inevitable 3DS Pokémon game may be just around the corner.

There are at least three mentions of a new Pokémon game floating around, including one Nintendo’s latest press release regarding sales figures, specifically linked with the 3DS.

Siliconera received a New Year’s card from The Pokémon Company, which makes mention of “even more amazing games” in the coming year than 2011, which brought four Japan-only releases as well as the western launch of Pokémon Black & White.

Meanwhile, GoNintendo has an image of a Pokémon tease splash from the pages of CoroCoro, which asks “What mystery is hidden in Kyurem?” and promises “Kyurem’s unseen power will be revealed”. Kyurem, according to Bulbapedia, is the third member of the legendary Pokémon trio featured in – and on the covers of – Pokémon Black & White.

Kurem is grey. The other two are black and white. You see what we’re saying here. We won’t be terribly shocked by a Pokémon Gray announce for 3DS in 2012.

    Also, clearly I was much more intolerant under my old persona, Crysis, but I stand by my comment. Glad they’re not doing a special edition on top of 2 identical-full RRP versions.

    Nintendo went out of their way to register a website for the game. Nintendo registered a few months back

    @2, Companies register sites all the time for reasons unrelated to development, remember MS snapping up those sites or whatever they were? I guess it’s not impossible that Nintendo have changed their minds, just saying that many publishers snap up sites that sound official just for defensive means, a likely move to prevent some fanbois picking it up & tricking everyone with an official-sounding domain.

    poketrainer – A WHOIS shows that *no one* from Nintendo owns that domain name. The one who registered it doesn’t even live in the same state as NoA’s headquarters. Any time Nintendo does register a domain, it will have their information on it. Not a single individual’s. And as Christopher Jack mentioned, Nintendo registers domain names for Pokemon games all the time. They do the same with registering names for copyright.

    @1 – they will do it, it would hardly be the first time a publisher lied about releasing new editions of their games now would it?
