Ahead of the release of DS pair Pokemon HeartGold and Pokemon SoulSilver in North America on March 14th, it has been revealed that both games will come bundled with a bonus accessory – the Pokewalker.

Kotaku reports that branded pedometer offers more than simply a step recorder – it can also be used to increase a player's in-game currency and experience. It can also be used to trade items with other players.

The recent DS releases have proved enduring popular in Japan with sales of nearly 1.5m across their opening weekend in Japan. The pair have since gone on to sell in excess of 3m copies in the region.
