Nintendo has announced a pre-order bonus offer for the upcoming Nintendo DS games Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness.

March 13, 2008 - Two new Pokemon adventures for Nintendo DS are on the way, and Nintendo plans to reward fans for ordering early with guides to help them navigate the games. Starting March 16, fans who place an order for either Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness will receive a free, limited-edition Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers Guide. The guide contains an exclusive collection of tips, interviews and an original manga by Ken Sugimori, main art director of Pokemon video games.

In these two new games, players journey through time and darkness as actual Pokemon as they attempt to find out why they've been turned into a Pokemon. Their epic quest leads them through countless, randomly generated dungeons, encountering more than 490 Pokemon. Players also have the option to send rescue alerts to their friends via e-mail or mobile text message when they are connected to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. These two new Dungeon games give Pokemon fans another excuse to upgrade to Nintendo DS, which also plays all their favorite Game Boy Advance games in single-player mode.

Pokemon games remain as popular as ever. Last year's release of Pokemon Diamond Version and Pokemon Pearl Version for Nintendo DS sold a combined 4.33 million copies to date in the United States alone.
