The Pocket Monsters: The Origin television anime will premiere in Japan on October 2 at 7:00 p.m. The anime was announced at the "Pokémon Game Show" event held at the Tokyo Big Site event center on Saturday.

Images from a promotional video shown at the event reveal that the anime will feature the player and rival characters from Nintendo's original Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green (released as Pokémon Blue in North America) video games. The original games' and television series' first gym leader Takeshi (known as Brock in English) will also appear in the upcoming anime. 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 San Francisco Chronicle reports that video game industry revenue fell by 26 percent in April, adding more concerns about the health of the industry in the worst year-over-year decline since July 2009. But the big news is that the decline in portable sales makes up 61 percent of the overall monthly decline, suggesting that the Nintendo DS platform is losing steam but also reflecting the growing clout of the iPhone platform as the iPhone and iPod Touch continue to draw in more casual gamers, the iPad offers a bigger screen experience, and Apple announces the 'Game Center' — a social gaming hub with console-like online gaming features. Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata is understood to have told his senior executives recently to regard the battle with Sony as a victory already won and to treat Apple, and its iPhone and iPad devices, as the 'enemy of the future.' 'If Nintendo's future mobile platforms are to be any kind of success, the company will have to figure out how to take on the ease of use afforded by the App Store,' writes Nicholas Deleon. A large part of Nintendo's faith in reviving its efforts hinge on the 3DS, which may ship in the fall, the first truly major handheld introduction for Nintendo since the original DS in 2004. He adds, 'Maybe Nintendo should just release a phone?'

Nintendo Co said Thursday it has filed a lawsuit against a U.S. firm for selling devices that allow users to download and play pirated versions of the company’s game software. The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in the Western District of Washington against NXPGAME Inc after the company ignored repeated warnings from Nintendo to stop selling the so-called game copiers on its multiple websites.

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.

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.
