Looks like these games will be direct sequels to the B&W storyline.

I posted full translations for the tweets Masuda made during and after the Pokémon Smash broadcast to the Bulbagarden forums, which you can view here.

Nice announcment but this wont see a 3DS release, thats bad enough for me...

I remember I saw an article that Pokemon Black/White looked better on the 3DS and had an extra feature

I am sure they will do the same again

Except Black/White didn't look better on the 3DS (due to the resolution being higher on the 3DS than the DS) and there was absolutely no new features for if you played it on the 3DS. Same exact gameplay experience as playing it on a DSi.

You probably got it from either IGNs aricle or someone who reads IGN. They posted (before Black/White released) that it would have additional features if played on a 3DS. Shortly after posting that, Nintendo debunked that by saying that there wouldn't be any additional features for it if played on a 3DS (and seeing as I played it on a 3DS as well as a DSi XL I know that there is no difference between the two.) It's unfortunate, but Black 2 and White 2 probably won't get better features either.

No, you heard it wrong. Maybe you're refering about an extra feature between DSi and DS Lite, that being the use of the cameras for videochat.

the mascots just look ridiculous now, much prefer their normal forms. I'm also pretty disappointed that it's not on the 3DS, it would have been really interesting to see what they could have done with the hardware boost. Having said that, it is the first direct sequel in the entire series so I'm pretty excited. Hopefully they'll manage to throw in some of the older regions along with some new places since it would be pretty boring to go over the same places as the previous game.

Unexpected but hey, at least there hasn't been any DLC in the series.
