Well it looks like the announcement that we were all expecting finally came today.  Pokemon Gold and Silver, which many believe were the best two in the series, will be remade and available in Japan this fall.  The remakes will be called Pokemon Heart Gold and Pokemon Soul Silver, and most likely will feature some new additions, alongside that great sixteen gym adventure that the originals were famous for.

Based on the Japanese release date for the games, we can probably expect NA versions sometime between the spring and summer of 2010.  Just how long can the now 11 year old series continue to remain at the top?  Well, as long as people are willing to buy the games, and it looks to me like they haven’t had enough.  One thing is for certain though, capturing Ho-Oh and Lugia on the DSi will no doubt bring back some memories.
