Today sees the official release of three new Pokémon videogames, available now for the Nintendo DS family of consoles. Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 are now available at retail stores for all Nintendo DS systems, while Pokémon Dream Radar is a downloadable title launching exclusively for Nintendo 3DS.
Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 will give fans of the original videogames a chance to catch-up with some familiar friends. In these newest editions, Cheren and Bianca return two years after the events of Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version, and a lot has changed. Bianca is now the assistant to Professor Juniper, helping her with Pokémon research and Cheren is now a Gym Leader and a teacher at a school in Aspertia City – the starting location for this adventure.
In Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, players will also be able to catch some of the Pokémon from outside the Unova region − such as Eevee, Riolu, Tyranitar, Arcanine and Mareep− right from the start of the videogame. If they are playing on Nintendo 3DS, players can also transfer Pokémon they have caught with the Pokémon Dream Radar into their Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 save games (visible in 2D only).
Pokémon Dream Radar lets players use several different features of the Nintendo 3DS system, including the Nintendo 3DS camera, motion control and augmented-reality technology, to discover and catch Pokémon. The game includes hard-to-find Pokémon such as the new Therian Formes of Legendary Pokémon Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus. Pokémon Black Version 2, Pokémon White Version 2 and Pokémon Dream Radar are all available now, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the Pokémon videogame franchise.
