Nightly News Roundup

The next Pokémon set has been revealed.

You may not be a Pokémon Professor, but like me, you may be a Pokémon Master. But why stop there? Why be a Master (or even a Professor) when you could be a LEGEND? The latest set in the Pokémon TCG, HS UNDAUNTED, launches this August. Featured in this set are two powerful Pokémon LEGENDs. Rayquaza and Deoxys LEGEND does 150 damage, and takes an extra prize with every kill. Dialga and Palkia LEGEND might not do any damage, but they can send an opponent’s Pokémon back to their hand, or can take the top two cards of their opponent’s deck and add them to their opponent’s prize pool. Become a LEGEND this August.

Reggie says 3DS targeting DS and PSP market.

In an interview with IndustryGamers, Nintendo of America’s president, Reggie Fils-Aime said that the 3DS targets both the DS and PSP crowds. “The way I would describe the market for the Nintendo 3DS would be the launch market that we had with the Nintendo DS plus the launch market that maybe PSP had. And the reason I frame it that way is we will attract all the Nintendo fans and all the Nintendo early adopters with products like Kid Icarus, and then we’ll incrementally add the consumer who loves Metal Gear, or the consumer who loves Resident Evil. That’s why in my view “DS plus” is a probably a better way to think about what the addressable market is.”

UK Retailer says 3DS this December

An unknown UK retailer has stated that Nintendo wanted a strong 3DS launch that ran up to Christmas , but now the portable is going to be in limited stock. The source said that they expected the 3DS in December, and not a lot of stock until next year. Of course when questioned, Nintendo gave the typical “We don’t comment on rumors or speculation” response.
