    It looks like the japanese release date for the new Pokemon Platinum will be September 13, 2008 for the price of 4,800 yen.

    Below is the complete translation of the August Coro Coro issue:

    (1) New story! Hunt down Team Galactic (again!)

    * Interpol arrives!
    * A new member has joined the team!
    * (Both Dialga and Palkia appear at Spear Pillar)

    (2) Sinnoh now has its own Battle Frontier!

    * The Battle Frontier arrives in the Fight Area! It’s now a part of the Battle Tower!
    * Exchange Battle Points (BP) at various new facilities!

    (3) New Wi-Fi capabilities!

    * Each Pokemon Center’s basement level has been expanded and now has new facilities that can support up to 20 player playing at the same time!
    * Play new Poffin making game inside Swalot’s mouth (a Swalot-shaped machine, not an actual Swalot)

    (4) New GTS capabilities! Battle Recorder confirmed!

    * There is a new GTS in Jubilife City! It has new facilities, including a Global Terminal!
    * New item: Battle Recorder: Record videos of your matches and share them with the world!

    Shaymin’s secret forme change procedures (This mostly reiterates what we already knew from previous updates)

    1. Receive Shaymin via Wi-Fi to Diamond/Pearl at movie theatres
    2. Transfer the Shaymin to Platinum
    3. In Floarama Town, receive the Flower of Glacidea!
    4. Use the Flower of Glacidea on Shaymin!
    5. Shaymin changes from Land Forme to Sky Forme (Grass/Flying, 0.4m, 5.2kg, Ability: Serene Grace)

    Giratina’s forme change is a mystery!

    * Use of Origin Forme is exclusive to Ruined World (Another Forme everywhere else).
    * Origin Forme ability = Levitate? Hard to read due to blurry scan
    * More info about how Giratina changes forme will be revealed in the next issue!

    That Battle Recorder sounds very interesting if true...

    I doubt anyone is going to translate it because Nintendo would be too stupid to just leave it as it is. It will come out to North American shores.

    True, but people dont usually do translations if they are already going to be officially translated... were probably just going to have to wait it out. :/

    ^Wow, if that's considered new...*sighs*

    Then again, it's the same old story every generation anyway. =P

    Lol at the story comment. Yeah, its always the same, but at least its not the same story as D/P. I figured Platinum would just be D/P v1.1 .... But its more like D/P v1.5!
