I’ve got a gaming roundup for you this week with a look at some great kid’s games coming in the future, arriving in stores this week and available now.

Up first, Pokémon announced that they will release two new games for the DS and DSi in the spring of 2010. Pokémon HeartGold Version and Pokémon SoulSilver Version are new versions of the original Pokémon Gold and Silver games released nearly 10 years ago for Game Boy. They have been enhanced for the DS and DSi with updated graphics and sound as well as new touch-screen features and “a host of surprises.”
