The Pokémon Hitokage (Charmander), Ishitsubute (Geodude), and Kamex (Blastoise) are featured in the promotional video.

The separate Pocket Monsters XY television anime series will premiere in Japan on October 17 as a tie-in with the Pokémon X and Pokémon Y games. Pre-orders for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y opened in Japan on August 10, and the games will ship for the Nintendo 3Ds worldwide on October 12.

An article at Wired discusses the difficulties involved in transferring games that were purchased and downloaded online when users replace their Wii or DSi. "Neither the Wii nor Nintendo’s portable DSi consoles have an upgrade path for downloadable content, since games are tied not to user accounts but to specific machines. It’s impossible for a user to copy content from an old console to a new one. Even some Wii owners whose machines have malfunctioned said it was difficult, or impossible, to get Nintendo to transfer the software licenses at its headquarters." One gamer, who bought the recently released black Wii console, explained that she got Nintendo to transfer her games, but needed to "mail both of her Wii consoles to Nintendo, and wait two weeks," hardly a convenient solution.

The fifth-generation Pokémon game has been announced! At least, the titles for the next generation have been announced -- Pokémon Black and White are the next pair of Pokémon games, to be released this fall on DS in Japan. Nintendo's going for relatively simple colors after things like "HeartGold" and "Pearl." And ... that's pretty much all we know. Of course, given the way the series works, we can all kind of guess exactly how this will play. Or maybe not: a note on the Pokemon home page promises that "every aspect will be reborn innovatively," according to our translation.

The first new creature from this generation has already been revealed as a sort of teaser: Zoroark, the Monster Fox Pokémon. The teaser site indicates that we'll know more April 15.

There is something oddly mystifying about treasure hunting. To go out into the wilderness, slay some baddies, and loot a treasure chest with glee. Borderlands, by 2k Games, tries to emphasize just that. You are greeted to the world of the Borderlands by arriving to the planet of Pandora, which is basically a desert hell-hole full of psychopaths and monsters, but having plenty of treasure and a mysterious ancient alien Vault that must be looted. Honestly, what more do you need?

The beginning of the game is my main praising over anything else. You start off by choosing any one of a group of 4 linear characters; the Sniper, the Medic, the Tank, and the Girl. Yes there, must always be a girl, but I love this, it makes the game easy to understand unlike the pain-in-the-arse system that Fallout 3 gave me. In which I spawned into the middle of desert (ironically, just like this game) and was promptly murdered by an enemy some 10 times my own level because the game decided it would be so much more fun not to show me a clear objective. But, Borderlands; you start

The 4th Annual Seiyū Awards will be accepting votes in English and in Japanese from October 1 to January 1. The Seiyū Awards were established as an annual award to honor voice actors and actress for their achievements in memorable voice acting performances and creative works.

The Overseas Fans Choice Award category was created last year in order to recognise more voice actors from a larger diversity of opinions. The first winner of this award was Jun Fukuyama, voice actor for Lelouch Lamperouge in Code Geass.

Officially, only votes from foreign fans are accepted for this category, with the results determining the first round of candidates and the second round by the Seiyu Awards Selection Committee.

The awards ceremony will be held at the Tokyo Anime Center in the Akihabara otaku shopping district on March 6.

For anyone who appreciates the symphony and classical music, Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy may be any other beautifully orchestrated performance. For Final Fantasy fans, it is a mind blowing experience that will have one’s blood racing, catalyzed by the sheer force and drama of a familiar soundtrack. It awakens childhood memories and revives all the wonder Final Fantasy has given us over the past twenty years. For a few hours, one is transported to a distant world by song. A world of dreams, heartbreak and adventure.

NAMCO Bandai Games America negotiated with Toei and FUNimation for the new agreement. The new agreement not set to officially start until 2009, will be preceeded by the publisher releasing 3 Dragon Ball games for the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and DS.

The games are:

Dragon Ball: Raging Blast for the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3 consoles,

The newest incarnation of Nintendo’s handheld, the DS launches on April 5th. This will be called the DSi and the system will have overhauled features. Two cameras are on this puppy—one on the back of the panel with the top screen, and the second pointing towards the user on the inside of the hinge. The GBA slot has been replaced with an SD card slot, making the device open to many other types of media and applications. It will play movie and certain music files as well (but not mp3 files), which can also be stored on the card. The DSi also boasts an Internet browser, presumably Opera, just like the Wii. I can only imagine that it will be easier to use, and less of a pain to navigate than the PSP’s browser, especially when it comes to field entry since we’ll have the touch screen to use like a thumb pad, or with the stylus pen if you prefer.

The DSi will be able to connect to the Wii Shop Channel / DSi Shop, which will allow people to download games directly to the machine, or the SD cards inside of it.
