Pokemon Black & White 2 Announced

Sequels coming to DS in June.


Game Freak's Junichi Masuda appeared as promised on Sunday morning's Pokemon Smash to announce the latest Pokemon game. But he didn't announce Pokemon Gray.

Instead, Masuda announced Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2. That's right, in what appears to be a new type of numbering for the franchise, rather than a third entry with a different color in its title, Black and White will be getting sequels with a 2 in the title.

Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2 are due for simultaneous release on the DS this June.

Just before the show's closing, Masuda teased that he'd be sharing the names of the Legendary Pokemon for the game, but this will be coming in next week's broadcast. He did share images of the two.

You can see big pics of the Legendary Pokemon and the game's logos at the newly opened teaser site. Similar to the official site for Pokemon + Nobunaga's Ambition, the site makes point of noting that the game can be played on the 3DS (which is true of all DS games, of course).

We've also included some pics from today's broadcast below.
