Nintendo has revealed that Pokémon Black and White 2 will be hitting the U.K on October 12th this year, just five days after it launches in the U.S. The two new games, which are the sequels to last year’s Pokémon Black and White (which sold pretty darn well), sees the story pick up two years later after the original Black and White take place and sees players return to the Unova region.
Here’s the new trailer that was released a week or two back, just in case you missed it the first time round (or fancy watching it out again):
Two new Pokémon-related apps are due to launch on the 3DS eShop alongside Black and White 2 in the Autumn: Pokémon Dream Radar and Pokédex 3D Pro. The former makes use the augmented reality, camera and motion control features of the 3DS hardware, allowing you to capture Pokémon that are seemingly running about your house which are then transferable to Black and White 2. Pokédex 3D Pro, on the other hand, is an updated version of the Pokédex 3D app that released way back when the 3DS first launched, featuring over 600 Pokémon and new in-depth sorting, comparison and ranking tools, as well as comprehensive details on what abilities each Pokémon can learn and how it evolves.
Pokémon Black and White 2 will launch on October 12th, and will be fully compatible with both DS and 3DS.
