Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, both launching Oct. 7 for the Nintendo DS family of hand-held systems (also playable in 2D on Nintendo 3DS systems), deliver new options and story elements that experienced Pokémon fans and newcomers alike can enjoy, says the company.
Revisiting the imaginative Unova two years after the events of 2011’s Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version, these games invite players to meet old friends and make new ones as they quest to face down rival Gym Leaders, survive heated turn-based battles and collect as many Pokémon as possible.
The ability to make your own Pokémon movies, connect with other players in new ways and enjoy a new storyline add even more fun to the mix, says Nintendo.
In Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, players take on the role of a Pokémon Trainer who must explore new areas of the Unova region two years after the events of Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version.
“The amount of new features and content in Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 is remarkable,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Even fans who spent countless hours battling their way through the Unova region in the previous games will find plenty of surprises, and it’s an experience found only on Nintendo hand-held systems.”
According to Nintendo, this marks the first time in the history of the core Pokémon video game series that storylines have continued from one game release to another.
The characters and environments in Unova have undergone extraordinary changes, from the rise of new Gym Leaders to a new Unova Challenge area where players can level up their Pokémon more easily.
A newly upgraded Pokédex also makes it simpler to find data and track Pokémon – including new forms of Legendary Pokémon.
