Tsunekazu Ishihara Speaks on Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, and Pokemon Dash!
Tsunekazu Ishihara, President of Creatures Inc (which creates the Pokemon games along with Nintendo and Game Freak, shed more light on the Pokemon games for Nintendo DS.
"We've developed many entries in the Pokemon series. Among those, titles such as Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire and Emerald are the backbone of the series. We've started developing the NDS (Nintendo DS) Pokemon Diamond & Pearl as the true successors to these games. They will be the definitive entries in the series, so please look forward to them," said Ishihara.
Ishihara also mentioned the dual cartridge feature. The Nintendo DS supports GBA games, but at the same time, a DS game and a GBA game can be inserted to the DS handheld. For the Pokemon Dash game, by using a Pokemon related GBA game, you can unlock new courses.
"While playing Pokemon Dash, if you insert a Pokemon-related Game Boy Advance cartridge, your Pokemon will become a race course. It will become a fun course in the shape of a Pokemon."
