Circuit City posts U.S. Platinum release date
Update: As of Jan. 17, Circuit City removed its Pokémon Platinum page, and the retailer has since gone out of business.
The release date was leaked by Circuit City. Several names have been revealed for new characters and locations in the game.
The character of Pluto, Team Galactic's resident scientist, has been renamed Charon, likely to avoid conflict with Disney much in the same way Team Galactic itself was renamed from the more literal Team Galaxy. In addition, the police officer Handsome has been renamed Looker.
The Ruined World will now apparently go by the moniker of Distortion World, fitting to the strange physics of the alternate world.
The names of Sinnoh's Frontier Brains have not been revealed as of yet.
