I know the next Pokémon games are Pokémon Black and Pokémon White and I know that both of them are going to hit the streets in Japan on Sept. 18, but other than that I don't know much about Game Freak's next project(s).
Which probably goes a long way toward explaining the look that washed across my face as I watched the following trailer earlier today:
Which scenes in particular prompted my "WTF face," as I like to call it? Well, there are the twitchy, three-on-three battle scenes that appear at the 3:22 mark. (I knew they existed, but I had never seen them in action before today.) Then there are the headscratchingly crazy trainers--including a fat chef and a football player--that appear at 5:18. Last but not least, there's the dress-up-and-dance "music show" that appears at 2:12. (Note to the game's developers: Please let me take the lizard-like Pokémon--Tsutarja?--into battle avec purse!)
I know I'm going to buy this game, play it for about 10 hours and then give up on it, but that isn't stopping me from being completely and totally stoked about it at the moment.
