It’s been a great couple of days for Pokémon fans in Europe, hasn’t it? First you get a revamped Pokémon Global Link website ready for the launch of Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, before hearing that the game’s sold fantastically over its launch weekend in Japan; and then you hear that Tecmo Koei’s spin-off, Pokémon Conquest, is coming to your continent after all! So whatever next? The release dates for Black 2 and White 2, maybe? Of course!
Launching alongside one of its two companion applications, Pokémon Dream Radar from the Nintendo eShop, the highly-anticipated sequel is set to release in Europe on 12th October, with Pokédex 3D Pro to follow later in the Autumn.
Its official press release reads as follows:
Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 will 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 evens of Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version, and a lot has changed. Bianca is now the assistant to Professor Juniper, helping her with Pokémon research and Cheren is now a Gym Leader and a teacher at a school in Aspertia City – the starting location for this adventure
In Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, players will be able to catch some of the Pokémon 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 Pokémon they might have caught with the Pokémon Dream Radar into their Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 games (visible in 2D only). Pokémon 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 Pokémon. The game includes hard-to-find Pokémon such as the new Therian Formes of Legendary Pokémon Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus.
This might be a daft question, but shall you be buying Pokémon Black 2 or White 2 over its launch weekend like well over one million Japanese games did?
