While Nintendo has yet to make an official announcement on the matter, Official Nintendo Magazine’s saying Pokémon Black & White’s rumoured March 4 date is “confirmed“.

The chances of this being wrong are slim. This means Europe will be getting the latest in Nintendo’s super-franchise a whole two days before America.

The news originally came from French sources a week ago.

Upon release in Japan last year, Black & White became the fastest-selling entry in the series so far, shifting over 1 million units by pre-order alone, and tallying up over four million units in just one month.

The previous entry, HeartGold and SoulSilver, reached 10 million sales within five months of western release – despite being a remake.
