Next year y'all.

Cyndaquil, Totodile, or Chikorita?

Nintendo announced this weekend that the DS remakes of the beloved second generation of Pokemon titles, HeartGold and SoulSilver, will be hitting Europe and North America sometime in the Spring 2010 range.

The massively popular games, originally Game Boy Color releases, introduced 100 new monsters, a day/night system tied to the real world and Pokemon breeding. These new releases will not only beef up the graphics and sound but will also add touch elements and promises a few more hidden surprises.

Welcome back, Johto.
