Pokemon Black & White 2 Headed To U.S. And Europe This October

By Ishaan . June 28, 2012 . 8:30am

Last week saw the release of Pokémon Black/White 2 in Japan, and this morning, Nintendo confirmed release dates for the game in North America and Europe as well. North America will see Black/White 2 on October 7th, while Europe will get the games on October 12th.


On the day of Black/White 2’s release in both regions, Nintendo will also release Pokémon Dream Radar for the 3DS via the Nintendo eShop, where you’ll be able to capture Pokémon using the 3DS’ augmented reality features and transfer them to Black/White 2. Among the Dream Radar Pokémon will be rare breeds such as the new Therian forms of legendary Pokémon Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus.


Finally, while Nintendo haven’t announced a release date for the app yet, Pokédex 3D Pro will be released through the Nintendo eShop sometime this fall, too. This updated version of Pokédex 3D will include detailed information on every single Pokémon in the history of the games.

    Resident Evil, Pokémon, Dishonoured, X-COM and the Assassin’s Creed III pair.

    October’s going to be a fun balancing act.

    • AuraGuyChris

      Luckily, I only own a console from those games so…no balancing needed!

  • Xapth

    Nice, that’s about two months faster than it took the original Black & White to be released overseas after it’s Japanese release.

    Still a bit surprised that these games are direct sequels to a Pokemon game. In a sense, I guess Gold/Silver could be considered sequels to Red/Blue… I honestly expected us to be getting a Pokemon Grey instead.

    Regardless, looking forward to this!

  • Raiyu

    Jeez there are so many games coming out in October, whatever happened to November…?

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Wii U?^^


  • Is that Brycen? I know he wasn’t everyone’s favorite gym leader, but it’s good to see they didn’t cut him out completely.

  • Anime10121

    Cant wait for this game, Black/White brought me back into the fold after not having liked a Pokemon game since Gold/Silver, and hopefully the sequel will keep me from going astray again.

    Aww wished it could come out in the summer so I could get KH3D and this. Gonna save a ton of my summer job money anyway and be smart with my money unlike last year. That way I can have money for the rest of the year for stuff like this :D

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Uukhhh 4 more month.T_T My body can’t wait for so long here.T_T

  • YoshEE

    Such a long month. But the day will come very soon. ^.^

  • NeoAthanasius

    I wish this game had a higher resolution version for playing on the 3DS XL. I may just have to break out my lonely DSi XL for this game. Either way, it looks fun.

  • I really can’t wait to play the sequels. So glad my sister and I both have some variation of the DS =P.

    Let the trading and battles begin!

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Too many PKMN in such little time, Im still not opened White version yet, perhaps Nintendo ought to have pushed it off to 2013. Hopefully we get hardcover guides this year too, preordering for day 1.

  • KHSoraKeyBlade

    We don’t get it 2 days before America? Well damn.
    Lol just kidding, I don’t even care xD 
    Can’t wait for these! :D

  • Herok♞

    Wait isn’t October also the month RE5 special editon and P4G come out? my wallet just committed suicide.

  • Ben Sylvia

    Hopefully the “strategy guide” will be more useful past defeating the E4.

    Especially since I keep managing to beat the games in a week. :
    We still didn’t get like 2 guides Japan got with downloads. :

  • 0_0 is that the female mc I just saw in the screenshot?

  • rurin

    I can’t wait for this to come out!
    I’m sooo looking forward to this….too bad I probably won’t be able to have time to play it until Winter Break though >.<
    sigh. school.
