The release date for Nintendo's GameCube title Pokémon Colosseum is drawing near. The game promises to provide a Pokémon-capturing adventure like never before in a truer RPG setting.
Pokémon Colosseum introduces new characters and worlds populated by familiar Pokémon from Ruby and Sapphire. An evil organization, bent on world domination, is capturing Pokémon and brainwashing them into powerful Shadow Pokémon. Players must use the Snag command, a first in the series, to steal Pokémon from the evil trainers. Through loving care and discipline, players can help their new Pokémon recover their senses and reveal their true personalities. The game also features a Battle Mode that allows players to upload their Pokémon from Ruby and Sapphire to engage in exciting arena battles.
Eager RPGamers who preorder Pokémon Colosseum will receive a special bonus disk that lets players add the special Pokémon Jirachi to their in-game collection and sneak a peak at the next Pokémon movie. Pokémon Colosseum will arrive in North American stores on March 24.
