Pokemon Black and White Sequels Hit Europe in Octoberby Adam Riley on 06/28/12
Dive into the world of Pokemon like never before when two new Nintendo DS Pokemon games and a downloadable Nintendo 3DS title arrive this October. The successors to the acclaimed Pokemon Black Version and Pokemon White Version games, Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2, are set to launch for the Nintendo DS family of systems (playable on Nintendo 3DS in 2D mode) on Friday 12th October, 2012. Pokemon Dream Radar will also be available for purchase in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS on the same day. This downloadable Nintendo 3DS title allows Nintendo 3DS owners to catch their favourite Pokemon, including some very rare ones, via the Nintendo 3DS cameras, using motion control and augmented-reality technology and transfer them into Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2.
Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2 bring players back to the Unova Region two years after the events of Pokemon Black Version and Pokemon White Version. There are many new areas to discover, and changes to familiar places for you to explore. One new area is Virbank City, home to Pokestar Studios. Players will be able to visit Pokestar Studios and star in their own movie with their favourite Pokemon. The movie a player creates premieres at the in-game theatre, where the audience gives it a rating. Movies are rated based on script choices and battle move sequences, and players can even create sequels to existing movies. There are many movie genres to choose from, including romantic comedy and horror. Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2 will also give fans of the original games a chance to catch up with some familiar friends. In this game, Cheren and Bianca return two years after the events of Pokemon Black Version and Pokemon White Version, and a lot has changed. Bianca is now the assistant to Professor Juniper, helping her with Pokemon research and Cheren is now a Gym Leader and a teacher at a school in Aspertia City, the starting location for this adventure.
In Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2, players will also be able to catch some of the Pokemon from outside the Unova region, such as Eevee, Riolu, Tyranitar, Arcanine and Mareep, right from the start of the game. If they are playing on Nintendo 3DS, players can also transfer Pokemon they have caught with the Pokemon Dream Radar into their Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2 games (visible in 2D only). Pokemon Dream Radar lets players use several different features of the Nintendo 3DS system, including the Nintendo 3DS camera, motion control and augmented-reality technology, to discover and catch Pokemon. The game includes hard-to-find Pokemon such as the new Therian Formes of Legendary Pokemon Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus. Also launching this Autumn for purchase from the Nintendo eShop, players can learn all about their favourite Pokemon with Pokedex 3D Pro for Nintendo 3DS. This enhanced and upgraded version of the original Pokedex 3D includes detailed information about every known Pokemon featured in the history of the Pokemon video game series.
