With a release date of March 22, 2009 Pokemon fans have something sweet to look forward to early on in 2009! Pokemon Platinum will feature a brand new story in which you will be required to solve the mystery of the Distortion world which appears within the Sinnoh region, home to never-before-seen pokemon, including the legendary Giratina’s Origin Form. Pokemon Platinum also includes a 20 player activity room in which you can play mini-games and activities, share battle videos with the new “Vs. recorder”, as well as the new Battle Frontier where you can test your skills with other players in all new ways. Pokemon Platinum has already been a humongous success in Japan with over 1 million copies sold in the first two days of it’s release!
