    The release window for us is "Autumn", so it wont be until September or October, most likely

    That title was very misleading as it made me think that the UK release date had been announced but I'm still glad that it is being released soon.

    Am i the only one who see's pokemon black as terrible pokemon games.. They had interesting graphics but this made things become pixalated and generally poor as was the in battle graphics.. Did castelia city really need to be round like it was..? Well personally I hope the sequels are better and the graphics are sharper. Why isnt it on the 3ds, thats what i dont understand! Well at least they have changed the region a little bit, and now we can get old pokemon! :) And I hope that there is going to be more on-line capabilities on the actual game without using a computer, but knowing Nintendo and there blindness to teenage gamers (who dont want to live in there dreams) it probably wont change much there.

    If they developed the English language verison at the same time, we could have a simultaneous release. That would be a LOT better!

  18. Pyron12 Sunday 27th May 2012 at 11:44

    Already knew that ages ago. Had hoped it was the date for the European release :|

    Wii U

    Nintendo just made an official Wii U facebook page and the Wii U logo has been uploaded to their E3 press site recently. I highly doubt the name is going to change.

  20. theringlord Wednesday 30th May 2012 at 12:57

    "Some time in Autumn"?

    That's not really a release date is it?

    The title "Pokemon Black and White 2 release date confirmed" is balls since it refers only to Japan anyway.

    What even is this shoddy writing?

    Why the hell do you get paid?

    Seriously.

  21. morg199911 Sunday 3rd Jun 2012 at 19:14

    please come out on october 28th, so i can preoder it for the day after my birthday! (getting a ipod touch on my actual birthday!)

    WOW JUST WOW dude your starting to sound like one of those guys who only care about graphics get with the program who cares if the graphics aren't good as long as the games fun does it really matter. i mean no one has ever taken the mick out ofsmb and that docent have very good graphics either. :|

  23. Black kyurem Sunday 10th Jun 2012 at 13:06

    As soon as you find the date for the uk please can you put it up becaus I'm crazy about Pokemon. Been playing it for as long as I can remember :D

  24. Coobreedan Sunday 10th Jun 2012 at 16:05

    I think it should be called Puu.

    I've hidden a box of money for White 2. I spend money when I am bored and I was thinking to take the money out of the hidden box and buy Animal Crossing for Gamecube to play on my Wii, so I decided to guard my box with a Rayquaza.

  25. sciqueen Sunday 10th Jun 2012 at 22:43

    Grrrr I keep clicking this article and forgetting it's the Japanese launch date! Would it hurt you to change the title???

  26. darkherox99 Monday 11th Jun 2012 at 00:52

    UK never gets the pokemon black 2 or white 2 game first idiot people. Japan gets the game first then other countries also where is the US release date.

  27. Wii U Marry Mii Friday 15th Jun 2012 at 19:14

    Damn it titles for articles recently have been so misleading.

  28. maartenpitt Saturday 16th Jun 2012 at 18:56

    Hey guys

    Everybody is saying Autumn for the European users but On Gamemania, the Belgian retailer sais july to August. What's the correct date then?

  29. AquaMisty Saturday 23rd Jun 2012 at 18:28

    This article is annoying me! It keeps coming up in the what's popular box and I always think it means the UK date!
    I must have clicked on this article 5-6 times!!

  30. CraigEmberson Sunday 24th Jun 2012 at 08:31

    Apparently it's been confirmed that October is the target release date in the west.

    I personally don't care when the uk release date is......as long as it's NOW!!!! or at least as close to now as possible. The japanese got it yesterday (Saturday 23rd) so surely it can't take too long to do some quick language dubbing. Seriously Nintendo, hurry up!!!!!

    I'm not sure you realise, but the whole translation job, especially for a game with a lot of text, is not exactly "some quick language dubbing". You also need to consider that there are other countries here in Europe, so it takes longer to not only translate to English, but also all the other languages (e.g. French, German, Italian, etc). If the release difference is like previous games (I'd say about 5 months), then it should be out here in Autumn, most likely November. Just be patient, like everyone else is.
