I knew it was possible the games could be released this year in the rest of the world, and I'm glad to know it's really going to be the case after all.

I really can't wait for the first screenshots!

Considering we probably won't get it before October (earliest possibility), that will be only 1 month sooner than Black and White (if not exactly the same delay between the Jap and US/EU releases).
So it's not that soon after all... but still pretty sweet to know we will get it this year.
