Pokemon Black and White 2 UK release date confirmed

New Pokemon adventures coming in October

Nintendo has confirmed the Pokemon Black and White 2 UK release date. Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2 will be released across the UK and Europe on 12 October.

In addition to Pokemon Black and White 2, 3DS eShop game Pokemon Dream Radar also has a 12 October UK release date. This game supports Augmented Reality as you shoot down Pokemon, some of which can be transferred to Pokemon Black and White 2. These include the new Therian Formes of Legendary Pokemon Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus.

Meanwhile Pokedex 3D Pro will also be released in the Autumn. This is an updated version of the Pokedex 3D app which now includes over 600 Pokemon.

Pokemon Black and White 2 was released in Japan last weekend and has already sold 1.6 million copies, making it the third fastest selling DS game in the country.

Pokemon Black and White 2 is set two years after the events of Pokemon Black and White and features many new areas to discover as well as familiar places for you to explore in the Unova region.

As you may already know, a lot has changed in the Unova regions since the last time we visited. Cheren and Bianca are back but Bianca is now the assistant to Professor Juniper, helping her with Pokemon research, and Cheren is now a Gym Leader and a teacher at a school in Aspertia City where you begin your adventure.

One exciting new area is Virbank City, home to Pokestar Studios where you'll be able to star in your own movie with your favourite Pokemon. The movie is then shown at the in-game theatre and the audience will give it a rating based on script choices and battle move sequences. You can even create sequels to existing movies, choosing from genres that include romantic comedy and horror.

The games have been well received in Japan. Famistu were first up with a Pokemon Black and White 2 review in Japan, awarding it 36/40.

    Wow that early this must be the fastest they have ever released a Pokemon game in Europe and America since the Japanese release. I thought it was going to be about early December just before Christmas.

    Anyone have a spare time machine?

    I'm actually glad Animal Crossing isn't coming out til next year now as there's so much Pokemon to be played for the rest of the year!

  12. fisher2007 Thursday 28th Jun 2012 at 14:49

  13. Pyron12 Thursday 28th Jun 2012 at 15:10

    At last we know when they're coming out but I've got a painfully long wait for them. Don't ask why.

  14. lrwr14 Thursday 28th Jun 2012 at 15:13

    Awesome, time to preorder. Is Pokemon Dream Radar a DSi game or a 3DS game? If it's a 3DS then that means this is kinda like the first 3DS enhance game.

    Anyway, I'll get this around launch, assuming I have enough money left from the WiiU.

    October? THAT'S TOO LONG TO WAIT! However, It'll be awesome when I get it. I'll definitely be downloading Dream Radar and the Pokedex Pro as well!

  18. Wiitabix Thursday 28th Jun 2012 at 23:44

    I'm looking forward to this, excitement for Wii U can be put on hold while a few pocket monsters receive some attention.

    I found on the Pokemon wiki that the Petalburg city gym leader is on the game as a battle sprite so please, please say that you can travel to other regions or at least battle other region gyms. - That would make my day! Or even my year!!!
