Nintendo’s investor meeting transcript for Q3 2009 isn’t up yet, but the teasers are already starting to trickle in. As some of our readers know, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has a habit of teasing some manner of new information each time he meets publicly with his investors, and this time he seems to have confirmed a new Pokémon for the DS.


Gpara report that the game will be a new Pokémon RPG developed by Game Freak, scheduled for release sometime in 2010. No further details were mentioned, and neither was it specified whether the game is being developed for the DS Lite or the DSi. The information is further confirmed on the Pokémon site.


Since details are scarce at the moment and all we have to go on is that Game Freak were looking to hire a 3D modeler last year, let’s not get too ahead of ourselves1 and keep expectations in check.


1. Oh, who am I kidding. New Pokémon!!! Laura said she visualized the announcement looking like the “I am Iron Man” scene from the movie, which wouldn’t surprise me in the least.
