Pokémon Black Version 2 and White Version 2 Announced

9

b2w2

You know the regular Pokémon cycle? You know, the one where you get two different version of the game, then an an enhanced remakes a little further down the road? Yeah, well Nintendo has thrown all of that out of the window, and announced Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.

Details are still extremely slim at this point, but it seems that the game will have something to do with the two new forms of the legendary Pokémon Kyuurem, pictured above.

Also, thanks to Junichi Masuda’s Twitter account, we know the game will be released for the regular ol’ DS this June. That’s most likely Japanese release date, as the game’s official US site has the release date listed as a cryptic “coming soon”.

Interestingly, the game’s Japanese website has an image with the word 3DS in it. Unfortunately, I don’t know an ounce of Japanese. Is it a hint at the game having enhancements for 3DS owners? Or just an advertisement for the system? If you can speak Japanese, feel free to let us know in the comments.

    I think the 3DS reference is just to make doubly sure people know you can play DS games on the 3DS… It translates as “Play it on the 3DS too”.

      I went to the Pokemon Official Website and it said that Black and White 2 will be realeased for the DS and 3DS. No lie, I swear.

    The 3DS will not have special features. It actually says “Playable in 2D on the 3DS” and it will not have the great quality that it will have on a normal Nintendo DS or Nintendo DSi/XL. The excitement for these games are high, and Black Kyruem and White Kyruem will definitely be an interesting match; considering this is the “first” sequel Pokemon has done. Though I think the game will arrive in the US sooner than we think…

    I refuse to call them Black 2 and White 2 and I will instead refer to them as Gray 1 and Gray 2.
