Official website for HeartGold, SoulSilver launches
The official Web site for Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver opened yesterday at http://www.pokemongoldsilver.com/. The site is currently small, with a full site coming soon. The first screenshots of the English Pokéwalker can also be seen.
The background used for the site features artwork of Ecruteak City by Midori Harada, as was used on the Japanese official site. The country-specific sites available at the time are for the United States and Canada, with region options for Latin America, Belgium, French Canada, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Portugal, and the United Kingdom (with Ireland) yet to come.
The Web site includes information on the pre-order bonuses for each game: Ho-Oh and Lugia figures for HeartGold and SoulSilver, respectively. Unlike the Japanese bonuses, however, the Arceus figure will not be given even if both games were pre-ordered.
The website features information about the Pokéwalker, a special pedometer that lets player interact with their Pokémon, catch wild Pokémon, find hidden items and trade gifts with friends.
Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions were released today in Korea, and will be released in North America March 14, in Australia March 25, and in Europe March 26.
