Edit: 29th May – Check bottom of article for aditional information
Whoa, you wait ages for some news and then 2 new mega piece’s of news come at once. See below for the news of the European Release date for the Pokepark Wii game.
The Offical Pokémon Website in Japan has just updated with some major news, out scouping the usual sources of CoroCoro magazine and Pokémon Sunday (who are usually at war with releasing info like this). First of all it annouced the news we all expected. Pokémon Black and White will be out in Japan in September 2010 (this year), while the US will see the game in Spring of 2011 (most likely March). No news on a European release, so its unknown if we’ll get it as close to the US launch as we got HG/SS
The other piece of news that the site revealed, was the new Version Specific Legendary Pokémon that will (most likely) be on the box’s of the games.
First up is Reshiram, who will be the Legendary Pokémon of Pokémon Black
While Zekrom is the Legendary Pokémon of Pokémon White (no, I havent gotten these the wrong way round, the white pokemon if for black, the black pokemon is for white – see what they did there?)
No more info is known about these Pokémon yet, although CoroCoro magazine is expected to reveal info on a new Pokémon in next month’s Issue, so it could be bringing details on these. Also with these now revealed on the website, Pokémon Sunday may mention and reveal new information on them as well.
Edit: May 29th:
Aparantly that’s not all the information the Official site revealed. In the Daisuki Club, a section on the official website, it revealed that the 2 Pokémon are Legendary Dragon Pokémon, meaning that they will at least be Part Dragon if not completly Dragon type (most likely they will be like Dialga and Palkia, part dragon, part something else).
The Club also revealed something interesting regarding the two versions, Black and White. Along with the usual differences of different Pokémon and different rates of encouter, the games will differ in a another, BIG way, which will be revealed at a later date. How different could this be – could the game have a complete section that is entirely different? or maybe a whole area that is exclusive to each version? We wont know until later when its revealed.
One last thing, A few websites have noticed that the box art for the games (which also has been recently revealed) has the game code written on it. Nothing to special with that, however the game code starts with TWL. DS Game codes are usually prefixed with NTR, but the TWL prefix means it has some enhanced features for use on a DSi… So what will be included in the game that will use the DSi hardware, we don’t know – but it is unlikely to be anything major so people with Old DS and DS Lites will still be able to enjoy the full game. As soon as we’ll do know what the features will be, we’ll post them on this news blog for you to know about
That’s all we have for now, we’ll bring you more news when it comes out.
