The much loved Japanese Pokemon franchise, Pokemon has two new titles on the way. Pokemon Black and White 2 were announced on the TV show Pokemon Smash in Japan, by series producer┬áJunichi Masuda. It has been given a release date somewhere in the month of June this year in Japan. There is currently no word on release dates for the rest of the world, but given the world-wide popularity of the series, I don’t expect there to be much of a delay.

The title is going  to be released on the Nintendo DS, which is surprising given the push for the 3DS to become more popular. Nonetheless, due to the names currently given to the games, it is believed that they are going to be direct sequels to Black and White. There is a good chance that they are going to be renamed at a later date, although for now Black and White 2 sounds just fine.

As for story twists, all we can be sure of is that there is going to be two new legendary Pokemon, which seem to look like an updated sprite from Reshiram and Zekrom. I am pretty pumped for these new titles- I’ve been a Pokemon fan since I was about 8.
