Game Freak director Junichi Masuda has announced new Pokemon games.
Another amazing exclusive in prep for a Nintendo platform. Day one purchase It looks like pokemon is going to continue the dominance as a force in the industry. When this game releases it is sure to shatter records and put smiles on faces worldwide. Couldnt have been a better day. The record breaking award winning Nintendo 3DS has just gained a heavy hitter. Rated E for Everyone
im pretty sure the article said they were for the DS... @knight_cid and my DS can play GBA games, that doesnt mean my GBA games are DS games....
and the 3ds can play ds games
Wow. Do you work for Nintendo PR too?
@Onilink sorry for the wrong reply sir Go to the pending articles right now and you can see that the other two articles have it announced for the award winning earth shattering Nintendo 3DS
@KeybladeMaster That was a yes.
Official website: http://www.pokemon.co.jp/ex... Official website... DS logo only.
On the lower right side of the page there's something in Japanese that has the word 3DS in it. What does it translate to in English?
@lavalamp1138 Something along the lines of "also playable on the Nintendo 3DS"
here is the quote from IGN: The third entry in the Black and White set of Pokemon games has finally been confirmed. The game, which at least for now is called Pokemon Black 2 and White 2, will be released for Nintendo DS in Japan this June, no word yet on a global release date. and also whats with all the lame "praise" to the 3DS, you can like a console without acting (and writing) like its the best thing ever on every comment where you mention it...
But... it IS the best thing ever. Don't let yourself be blinded by the miraculous beauty that is the Nintendo 3DS!! OPEN YOUR EYES BROTHER!
I think this marks the official run out of ideas...
I think they ran out of Colors. lol I always wanted a Pokemon Online MMO... Mabye Wii U will make it. Or something of that sort.
It's for the ds dumbnuts.
This man speaks the truth! I would follow the General into battle anyday.... The (3)DS is a truly remarkable machine. Long live love.
Come on Sony, it's time to announce Monster Hunter for the VITA! Get your asses to work! Why did they just stick a big fat '2' on it? Usually they add a color! They should have named it Pokemon Turqoise and Pokemon Pink! LOL
"Come on Sony" ?? Sony does not own the ip dood, Capcom owns it...damn fanbois -_-... 3DS has 2 exclusive Monster Hunter games, Monster Hunter Tri G and Monster Hunter 4! see, if you want to just admire a hardware buy vita, if you want to play awesome GAMES buy 3DS :)
Pokemon has been ruined...
Idk how the black and white 2 thing will go, hope it doesn't become habit. But black and white were piss poor Pokemon games compared to the like of silver/gold and ruby/sapphire. The world map was one little circle.
Sweet. Edit:In the second pix he's fused with both Reshiram and Zekrom wtf:o??
im so confused by this
I'm seeing DS and 3DS. Which is it?
I'll wait till I see some battle footage before I get too excited :/
Why not focus on next gen Pokemon?
It is cheaper this way, less work for a lot of profit. Way put a lot of time and money into something when people will buy it for less quality? Examples: COD 6 and up (4 and 5 are the first of their kind), and MH for portables (originally home consoles)/ MHTri being switched from PS3 to Wii.
Gen 5 is still kinda new. I'd give it a year or two until they start on the next gen.
Are these guys Lazy? The 3DS is out and they make the games for the DS. Why? Then again, it's a sequel so they're probably not going all out just like the FF sequels but even then it's odd seeing a 1st party game releasing on an older console when the latest one is out.
it has been announced for the Nintendo 3DS http://n4g.com/news/948790/... Ok after further examining. Even though the link i provided clearly says 3DS. The majority of the other sites i looked at say DS and not 3DS. With that said the Nintendo DS is still being supported after a next generation launch. Which is great news for all who have not upgraded to the award winning 3DS entertainment system as of yet.
Eh... no it hasn't. Every story says DS.
@LX-General-Kaos What have you been smoking?!?
@RoBo Instead of showing up here with jokes you should try clicking the link that i provided above. Its clear as day at the top in the description. 3DS. Its not my fault that it was written there. At the time there was no way for me to know. Its amazing that people are so quick to trash talk but when you provide visual proof they pretend that it does not exist.
Well, they are saying both 3DS and DS so I don't know which one it officially is. But, if it's for the DS then it's because the 3DS can play DS games so you basically double the amount of buyers.
stop trolling, it has nothing to do with being lazy. Its a very strategic move.
Not really that strategic. New Pokemon games sell ridiculous numbers, instead of getting it on 3DS, they've opted for the bigger userbase. Which is understandable... Problem is, this would have shifted a METRIC TON OF HARDWARE... and that's where the confusion comes in. Basically, it sounds like they're making Black/White sequels so they can copy across the assets, sell it for full price and release it on old hardware rather than actually developing a game for the new platform. Why even release a new console and then take a step back with one of your biggest franchises? Cash grab. No other reason. Square Enix got crucified for this and their "sequel" was on current gen hardware.
