Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 announced!

 And they said it wouldn't happen. Tsk, Tsk.

Prepare to journey back to Unova, because the new iteration (or make that iterations) to Pokemon Black/White are announced for the Nintendo DS! Numbered remakes? Now that's an interesting first...for this series anyway. And it seems Zekrom and Reshiram have received surprising new make-overs. (Is that Kyurem armor???) The games are set for a Spring release in Japan, so don't expect these titles overseas until at least the third quarter, but expect many more surprises as we continue through 2012.

EDIT: Those aren't Reshiram and Zekrom; they're both new Formes for Kyurem, the 3rd legendary and it seems that it's fused with the both of them. The correct release date for B/W2 in Japan is June 2, 2012, and we should be set for a whole new story as well! That's right, no more minor story modifications in a 3rd version! Wonder what happens?

Also, the game is for the Nintendo DS, with 3DS-exclusive features.


Also, in other news, The Last Story is set for an American release! Can this year get any better?!
