Pokémon has been a staple franchise for the Game Boy consoles since the very early inception of the Nintendo handheld, and today the company has announced a release date for the very first sequels in the franchise, Pokémon Black and White Version 2.
Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon 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 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.
Pokémon Black and White Version 2 are also sporting some new designs, with a big addition that will allow players to capture Pokémon from outside the Unova region − such as Eevee, Riolu, Tyranitar, Arcanine and Mareep− right from the start of the game.
While the new Pokémon version are being developed on the DS, 3DS owners will be able to interact with the environment with a new title called Pokémon Dream Radar. This new title will allows 3DS owners to catch their favourite Pokémon, including some very rare ones, via the Nintendo 3DS cameras, using motion control and augmented-reality technology and transfer them into Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2.
Pokémon Black Version 2, Pokémon White Version 2 and Pokémon Dream Radar will all be available on October 12th for the Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS.
