Game Freak Director Junichi Masuda has explained why Pokemon Black and White 2 is coming to DS rather than 3DS.
Game Freak surprised everyone when they announced Pokemon Black and White 2. Not only as it's the first time there has been a numbered sequel in the series but also because, unlike Nintendo's other big franchises, it is coming to the old DS rather than 3DS.
Speaking during the latest Iwata Asks ahead of the Pokemon Black and White 2 release date, Masuda said that the games are coming to the DS rather than the 3DS because there Game Freak wanted to make a sequel set in the same world.
Clearly, they wouldn't have stopped them from making a Pokemon Black and White 2 3DS game but it seems that Game Freak are thinking of the fans who only own a DS and want to play the sequel to Pokemon Black and White.
As for the reasons why Game Freak decided to make two games rather than the usual director's cut, the company wanted to surprise fans who would have been expecting the rumoured Pokemon Grey.
They also had an idea for these games which could not be implemented into one game. Interesting... Wonder what that is?
Of course, Game Freak are catering for 3DS owners with Pokemon Dream Radar, the game in which you can catch Pokemon for your copy of Pokemon Black and White 2.
