Nintendo announced today that it has shipped POKEMON CRYSTAL to retailers across the country. POKEMON CRYSTAL is an adapted version of the insanely popular POKEMON GOLD/SILVER series.
The main new feature in POKEMON CRYSTAL is the new trainer. For the first time in POKEMON history, players can play as a girl pokemon trainer. Selecting the female persona effects not only the way characters react to you, but the overall look of the menus as well. The game also delves deeper into the mystery of the heiroglyphic pokemon, the Unown.
"POKEMON CRYSTAL is an extraordinary addition to the POKEMON lineup, which has evolved from a pop culture phenomenon into a stable and enduring entertainment franchise," says Peter Main, executive vice president, sales and marketing, Nintendo of America Inc. "The release of every new POKEMON game becomes a landmark event for our players, and we expect POKEMON CRYSTAL to become a priceless commodity among the legion of North American Poké-fans."
POKEMON CRYSTAL will retail for $34.95 and carries and ESRB rating of "E" for Everyone. Look for CINESCAPE ONLINE's review later this week.
