Pokemon Black and White 2 Have Release Dates
This morning, Nintendo announced the release dates of their next cock fighting simulators Pokémon games, Black Version 2 and White Version 2. Coming out for the Nintendo DS (also playable on the 3DS), the new games will be out on October 7. That day also sees the eShop release of Pokémon Dream Radar, which utilizes the 3DS’s camera and augmented reality jammies. From the press release:
“This downloadable Nintendo 3DS title allows Nintendo 3DS owners to catch their favorite Pokémon, including some very rare ones, via the Nintendo 3DS camera, motion control and augmented-reality technology, and transfer them into Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2.”
Basically, you’ll get to wander around the apartment looking for hidden creatures, and then use them in the game—which is pretty damn cool. It’s also a nice added bonus for 3DS owners who won’t get to play the games in 3D.
Of course, I should also point out that I have never, ever played a Pokémon game, and I have severe doubts as to whether or not this will change anything. But the augmented reality thing is making me think a little harder about this…
