pokemonNintendo has released their early 2009 lineup and I must admit I’m impressed with the quantity of games we’re going to see released by Nintendo. Hopefully, the quality will also be very high – it would be sad not to, since the highly anticipated Pokemon Platinum will finally be released on March 22, together with new Mario, Pikmin, Sony and many, many more games – over 100 titles, to be more specific.
