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 Sunday, Oct. 7th. 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 favorite Pokemon, including some very rare ones, via the Nintendo 3DS camera, motion control and augmented-reality technology, and transfer them into Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2.
"Fans will want to count the days until Oct. 7, when they'll not only get to play the successor to one of the biggest Pokemon adventures ever, but also expand their Pokemon experience to the Nintendo 3DS with Pokemon Dream Radar," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "No matter whether people are playing on Nintendo DS or Nintendo 3DS, they'll be getting an incredible Pokemon experience that expands upon the beloved Pokemon Black Version and Pokemon White Version games."
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 in the region, and exciting changes to previously visited places for players to explore. One new area is Virbank City, where players will be able to visit Pokestar Studios and star in their own movie with their favorite Pokemon. The movie a player creates premieres at the in-game theater, where the audience gives it a rating. Movies are rated based on script choices and battle move sequence, and players can even create sequels to existing movies. There are many movie genres to choose from, including romantic comedy and horror.
The new games 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 Black and White Version, and a lot has changed. Bianca is now the assistant to Professor Juniper, helping her with Pokemon research. Cheren is now a Gym Leader and a teacher at a school in Aspertia City -- the starting location for this adventure.
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 transfer Pokemon they have caught with 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.
Additionally, players can learn all about their favorite Pokemon by purchasing Pokedex 3D Pro from the Nintendo eShop. 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.
