Nintendo and The Pokémon Company have announced the release window for Pokémon Black & White outside of Japan.

Those with a hankering for the capture of sweet, innocent creatures for the purpose of forcing them to battle to the death will get their next crack at a selection of new Pokémon in about a year. It’s been announced that Pokémon Black & White will be released in North America and Europe in spring 2011.

Pokémon Black & White were first revealed earlier this year and details on the games have slowly trickled out, including what the starting Pokémon will be. They’ll also bring a 3D graphical style that the series hasn’t seen before.

Two new legendary Pokémon will find themselves in both the games and on the covers for Pokémon Black & White. Gracing the cover of Pokémon Black will be Reshiram, while Zekrom will be on the cover of Pokémon White in all regions. These will probably be the next Pokémon that kids and adults alike will kill to acquire virtually.

With 207 million units of Pokémon sold in the past 14 years, and the recent remakes Pokémon HeartGold & SoulSilver moving 8.4 million by themselves, the dead carcasses of a pig and and giraffe could be on the covers of Pokémon Black & White for all the Pokémasses care. Look for more details on the titles as we near their fall 2010 Japanese release date.
