Greetings. Happy new year!
We look forward to your support
In 2008, we Game Freak will try for
various things as always!
And we will keep striving to create
new innovation beyond the imagination.
I'd like to ask a question to you.
Do you have an aspiration for this year?
I, Masuda's aspiration will be
'to gather up stuffs firmly'.
Last year was the year of 'Challenge'...
This year, I'd like to gather many things up firmly.
If you don't have any aspiration yet,
try to come up with one!
Here's a little surprise for you.
Please play Pokemon Diamond / Pearl on January 12th.
You'll find something different!!!!!
I hope this year, things go well for all of you.
That´s not a joke! It´s a little suprise during the 40th birthday of Masuda.
