The past few weeks have certainly been very exciting for Pokemon fans! Between teaser trailers and gameplay details, it’s clear that Nintendo is moving full steam ahead towards the release of Pokemon Black 2 and White 2.
Today, more screenshots from the games have been released, as well as some information about two new 3DS titles, Pokemon Dream Radar and Pokedex 3D Pro, that will appear in the Nintendo eShop this Fall.
Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 return players to the Unova region, approximately two years after the events of the previous games. According the screenshots below, however, much has changed after the defeat of Team Plasma, and it’s up to the player to discover what has happened.
All the familiar Pokemon are present, along with two brand new legendary Pokemon: the Ice types Black Kyurem and White Kyurem, which are displayed on each game’s respective packaging.
Pokemon Dream Radar (previously called Pokemon AR Searcher) and Pokedex 3D Pro are downloadable titles designed to expand the Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 experience while remaining accessible to players who do not own the games, but simply want to learn more about the world of Pokemon and its many creatures.
Similar to the PokeWalker that was released with Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver, Dream Radar is designed to blend the game world and the real world into a seamless Pokemon experience. While the PokeWalker had players use a Tamagotchi-like device to capture Pokemon from outside of the game, Dream Radar utilizes the 3DS’s on-board 3D camera and augmented reality system to achieve the same effect. Players can use the 3DS to find hidden Pokemon, capture them, and transfer them to Black 2 or White 2.
Pokedex 3D Pro is an upgraded version of the original Pokedex 3D application that was released last June. It contains much more detailed information on all 649 Pokemon, complete with stats and evolution details, and a comparison and rating tool. Also included is fun tool that allows players to take pictures of Pokemon in the real world, again utilizing the 3DS’s camera and augmented reality system, as with Dream Radar.
Ranters, are you excited to drop back into the world of Unova and use your 3DS to capture and document Pokemon?
Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 release this Fall, along with Pokemon Dream Radar and Pokedex 3D Pro.
