Well, it’s now Sunday, and as promised, a new game was revealed on the Japanese TV Show “Pokémon Smash!” Or should I say, games? That is because two titles were revealed: “Pokémon White 2” and “Pokémon Black 2” and they are the sequels to the current games.
Most of the buzz surrounding these new games is based on the cover artwork. It’s very similar to the cover art from B&W, however instead of Zekrom and Reshiram on their respective colors, we see two different (and NEW) forms of Kyurem! Take a look:
It’s pretty cool! It looks as though Kyurem is taking over Zekrom and Reshiram’s bodies or something! I’m sure all that will be explained in the game and/or the movie. B&W2 are slated to be released this June in Japan… no release date or anything for any other region. (Of course! Wah.)
Anyone else a little bit irked by the titles of these new games? They just slapped a 2 on there? What’s up with that? Maybe they are saving Pokémon Gray for yet another game? Or maybe they just don’t like Gray for a title? I dunno. What do you think?
Well that’s pretty much all the info that was revealed so far. If you visit www.pokemon.com there’s a little video about B&W2 but not much else. But as soon as more info is available, I’ll be sure to share it with you all!
While we wait for more info regarding the new games, I’ll be super busy playing B&W as I prep for 3 upcoming Pokémon Tournaments. The first is the new International WIFI Tournament which will be held through the PGL this March. Then I have a local tournament at a store called Play N Trade, here on Long Island. April brings the official Pokémon Video Game Championships which is being held in Philadelphia. Road Trip!!! That’ll be fun.
Oh and of course, until then, I’ll have PokéPark 2, which releases TOMORROW! Yeah! So I will officially be all Pokémon’ed out after April. Then I’ll probably be back to Harvest Moon, or maybe (by some miracle) Paper Mario 3D or AC3DS will come out. Don’t hold me to that – I have no idea on the release dates for either one of those games! If you see any info, please share it with me either here or on the Glux Box Facebook Page! Thanks. 😀
