23 Pokémon Platinum screens

Japanese smash hit gears up for May UK release

Having sold over 2.4 million copies to date in Japan, DS title Pokémon Platinum is being readied for a May 22 launch in Europe.

Basically it's a beefed-up version of the Diamond and Pearl games that released in 2007 but with an added load of features and areas to explore.


It offers "new ways to play online at the Wi-Fi Plaza over the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection and the ability to save your greatest victories in the Vs. Recorder", plus you'll get to explore a "brand new Distortion World, governed by neither time nor space".

Battling has also been updated, and you can find out more about the additional features in our previous coverage here, but be sure to check out these new screens first.
