Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter launch on 3DS

Nintendo has finally released their brand new Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter apps in North America, allowing trainers to safely store and transfer their pocket monsters from the last two generations of games.

Pokemon Bank video shows off Poke Transporter in action

We've already written a lot of words on how Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter work. Coming December 27 to the Nintendo eShop, the subscription service will let you store thousands of Pokemon in the cloud--including legacy critters from the Pokemon Black & White games. A free 30 day trial will be available until January 31, after which a $5 annual subscription will be required.

Of course, maybe that's a bit too much information to digest all at once. Or maybe you require your news to be delivered with really happy music in the background. Either way, Nintendo released a new video showing off how the upcoming service works, and it's a great way to see some older Legendary Pokemon appear in X&Y's new 3D engine.

Watch: It really is so cheerful »

Pokemon Black & White Version 2 announced

Pokemon Black & White Version 2 announced

Remakes and revamps are staples of cutesty collect-o-RPG series Pokémon, so it's no surprise that Nintendo has announced new versions of Pokémon Black and White are on the way. Breaking the tradition of upgrading the name's colours to something a little snazzier, they're named simply Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2.

April NPD: Mortal Kombat beats Portal 2

The NPD Group released its retail-only sales data for April 2011 last night, and it shows some positives signs for the industry. Physical software sales grew in both units and dollars for the first time since November.

Mortal Kombat took the top spot with 900,000 units, edging out Portal 2. It's worth noting, of course, that Portal 2 probably saw more than a few purchases through Steam, which isn't tracked by NPD and may never be. Read more »

March NPD: 3DS launch-o-rama

Market research firm has issued its latest monthly retail-only sales report, covering February 27 through April 2--the first since the Nintendo 3DS handheld launched in March. As ever, console manufacturers have come out of the woodwork to support the report with figures and marketing spin.

Nintendo relays that the 3DS sold "just shy of 400,000 units" in the US within its first seven days of sale after launching on March 27. This falls slightly short of the regular Nintendo DS models, which combined sold 460,000 units. Read more »

What are you playing: Down by the Water

I'm getting ready to pack up and move my life to Los Angeles from Toronto, but before then I need to get some gaming time in. The last two games I've played at home were for review, so it would be nice to actually spend some of my personal time playing for fun.

Pokemon White/Black set series sales records

The latest Pokemon incarnations, Black and White, have broken the previous series sales record, according to Nintendo. The pair sold a combined 1.08 million units on launch day, March 6, marking them the new kings of critter-cockfighting sales.

The previous record of a paltry 780,000 had been set by Diamond and Pearl in 2007. The higher figures for Black and White make sense, given that it doles out all new Pokemon for the main quest instead of recycling existing ones, and the new entries add a handful of new features like triple and rotation battles.
