Pokemon Black and White Balling Up on March 6

Pokemon White Version 2 and Pokemon Black Version 2 are both headed to Nintendo DS handhelds in North America sometime before the end of 2012, a morning press release from Nintendo confirms. This comes on the heels of a Japan reveal over the weekend on the TV series Pokemon Smash

The Black and White sequels will be released on the DS in Japan this June, though Nintendo's press release doesn't get any more specific than "2012" for the North American versions. No other details about the two games are revealed, though you can take a peek at new looks for Black Kyurem and White Kyurem at Pokemon.com.

Spider-Man is coming back to theaters this July with a new take on the Marvel superhero directed by Marc Webb and starring Andrew Garfield. One week earlier, Beenox will unleash its first crack at open-world Spidey in the Activision-published The Amazing Spider-Man, a new trailer now confirms.

The official release date posted at the end of the IGN-exclusive trailer is June 26, with the game coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, DS and 3DS. You also get to have a look at the villainous Rhino, who appears in a Spider-Man video game for what must be the 43,464,872.091,330th time. Think we'll fight Electro too? How about Scorpion? Maybe a wacky funhouse level with Mysterio?

Don't get me wrong, I'm totally looking forward to more Spidey from Beenox. But everyone's favorite friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man really needs to bulk up his rogue's gallery. And not just with generic giant robots.

The PlayStation Vita releases today with one of the strongest launch lineups in recent memory for any console, handheld or otherwise. For all of the new features packed into handhelds these days, without a steady stream of games to play, your shiny new toy can quickly turn into an expensive paperweight. Come with us as we look at launch games of handhelds gone by and see what games helped highlight the novel features of the platform and which ones were nothing but a Band-Aid on a doomed console.

Nugget From The Net: The Game Boy That Survived The Gulf War

Console: Nintendo Game Boy

North American Launch: August 1989

There may have been handhelds that launched prior to the Game Boy, but this was the machine that started it all. Created by Gunpei Yokio, the creator of Nintendo’s Game and Watch series, the Game Boy came bundled with Tetris and launched with just four other games: Alleyway, Baseball, Super Mario Land, and Tennis. Super Mario Land went on to spawn two more sequels and introduce Wario to the world, and continued the tradition of launching a new Nintendo console with a Mario title. As successful Super Mario Land was, the real star of this launch was Tetris. By the time that the Game Boy launched, Tetris had been out for five years and had snared many in its addictive, shape-dropping grip. Tetris was accessible to both kids and adults and was shaped based, thereby sidestepping the Game Boy’s color-less display and, best of all, it was free.

A Battleship video game is coming, gamers, so prepare thyself! Developed by Double Helix Games for the Nintendo DS, 3DS, 360, PS3 and Wii, Battleship is inspired by the the well-known kids' game as well as the movie version of the well known kids' game. It is a "seek and find" adventure that is aimed as a stand-alone story from the motion picture. The idea is to provide a "blend of strategic naval command and first-person action gameplay."

“We’re geared up for an outrageous sea and land conflict with the all new Battleshipvideogame,” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing.  “Inspired by the film’s exciting action and stunning backdrop, the game is next-gen naval warfare that thrusts players into the middle of humanity’s last stand against an unfamiliar menace.”

Battlefield 3

While Battlefield 3 didn't outsell its rival Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, the game has done very, very well for parent company Electronic Arts. According to EA, Battlefield 3 sold over 10 million copies. That's not copies-shipped, either. That's copies sold.  Soccer simulation FIFA 2012 also topped 10 million in sales, and Madden NFL 2012 sold over 5 million copies.

The good news comes by way of EA's quarterly financial results. Overall, it's been a really good quarter for the company. They boast:

"We recorded our highest operating cash flow in 31 quarters and grew segment share in both Europe and North America," said Eric Brown, Chief Financial Officer. "Third quarter non-GAAP digital revenue grew 79% year-over year, and we achieved our goal of generating over $1 billion in non-GAAP digital revenue on a trailing-twelve-month basis."

That's another way of saying, "Cha-CHING."

Nintendo Reveals Nintendo Network

During an investor presentation held last night, Nintendo's Satoru Iwata gave the world a glimpse of what we can expect from the Wii U when it launches later this year. One of the most interesting pieces of news concerns Nintendo's online plans: The revelation of The Nintendo Network, Nintendo's online platform.

The Nintendo Network seems planned as a fully functional online hub, like the PSN and Xbox Live. It will allow "competitions and communication among users, as well as the sales of digital content." On the Wii U, you'll have personal user accounts, too.

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes Is Coming This Summer

We all knew that this would be official before long. Too much seemingly hard evidence has surfaced pointing to a second LEGO Batman game for it not to be a Thing. And Warner Interactive has now confirmed it. LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is coming to a gaming platform near you this summer, a press release reveals. That means: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Windows PC, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita. No WonderSwan though. Sorry all.

The DC Super Heroes subtitle means that you're seeing more than just familiar faces from TT Games' previous Batman release. Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and Lex Luthor are all confirmed. Who else would you like to see? I'm casting my vote now for the Wonder Twins.

Batman: Arkham City

All the awards shows and fan polls in the world can tell you one thing, but video game rental service GameFly offers what is perhaps one of the best barometers for what actual people were actually playing over the course of a given year. Today the company releases its top 10 GameQ lists for 2011, with the rankings based on how frequently each title appeared in users' "I want to rent this next" lineup.

The top-requested game across all platforms is WB Games' Batman: Arkham City, followed by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Dead Island in the two and three spots, respectively. Skyrim, G4's own Game of the Year, is ranked seventh, likely because anyone who wanted it recognized the timesink involved and just bought the thing. Arkham is also the top game on the Xbox 360 list, but it's number two on the PlayStation 3 list, behind Uncharted 3 (of course).

Hit the jump for the full platform-by-platform breakdown, also including GameQ rankings for the Wii, 3DS and DS platforms.

Pokemon X Nobunaga's Ambition: Is This The Next Evolution Of Pokemon Games?

Pokemon is known for strictly following a formula. Every iteration of the series from Pokemon Red to Pokemon Black has followed this pattern.

Kid Icarus Uprising Developers Testing Online Multiplayer

With the end of 2011 now clearly in sight, Nintendo is looking to get gamers set for its early 2012 releases. A morning press release runs through a variety of Wii 3DS, DS and eShop release dates and windows for both first- and third-party games, including hotly anticipated titles like Kid Icarus: Uprising.

Pit will reclaim his bow and arrow in Uprising on March 23, 2012, bringing yet another classic Nintendo character to the 3DS platform. Also confirmed is a February 7 release date and $19.99 price tag for the Circle Pad, the 3DS attachment that adds a second analog nub and additional shoulder buttons. It's confirmed to be compatible with both Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater (Q1 release) and Resident Evil: Revelations (2/7 release).

On the Wii side, Nintendo notably confirmed release dates for Rhythm Heaven Fever and Mario Party 9, for 2/13 and 3/11, respectively. Those are the highlights; you can see the full list over on Nintendo's website. Bear in mind that dates and titles both are subject to change.

Modern Warfare 3 Cover Art Revealed?

Unsurprisingly, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim topped the video game sales charts in November, according to the NPD analysis group. MW3, from Publisher Activision Blizzard, sold $775 million in its first five days on the market so it's not too surprising that they came in at the number one spot. Battlefield 3, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, and Just Dance 3 rounded out the top five.

According to the NPD Analysis group, “This November marks the best November on record for sales of new physical content.  November 2008 was previously the best November on record.” They went on to mention that, “In one month, Elder Scrolls 5:  Skyrim is just about half a million units shy of matching Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion in lifetime sales.  Its first month performance was a five-fold increase over Oblivion’s first month sales," and they attributed the high sales to "outstanding review scores" like the our own Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim review.
