Pokémon Black / White Version 2... On the DS?! Why?!

Last Saturday’s announcement of Pokémon Black Version 2 & Pokémon White Version 2 was rather shocking. We knew that there was going to be a Pokémon game announcement, and we all knew that it was likely going to be the third installment of the fifth generation Pokémon game that would most definitely include new Kyurem forms. We didn’t, however, see it all.

A big shocker was that both Pokémon Black & White Version 2 will be for the DS and not the 3DS. That’s right, the new main series Pokémon games won’t be for Nintendo’s latest handheld.

The story is too old to be commented.

I think it could work out if the features mentioned in the article do in fact turn out to be true.

the same reason why persona 4 was on the ps2, or god of war on the ps2

That is indeed weird especially if it is a second version, it would mean something improved and has it on the 3ds but it being on the DS just makes it confusion.

Knight_Cid2094d ago

its only confusing if youve been arond gaming for a week

SavageKuma2094d ago

Not necessarily KID....because you have two of the same just one with version two on it, why not just make version two on the 3DS with better graphics and a 3D fight system!

Knight_Cid2094d ago

your calling me a kid when you dont even know the history of gaming?

Seriously dude?

This is a sequel, A brand new game

Do you think this is the first time a game has come out when there is a new version out?

Well do you?

gamefreak ade drill dozer 1 year after the ds launch on the gba. Same with fire emblem. Same with god of war 2 on the ps2, sale with perosna 4 , same with alot of other games

I think he was more-so referring to your user name not actually calling you a kid.

Anyway, the reason why those games remained on PS2 was the development. It was too far into development to just drop the God of War II and start over again.

The same could be said about Pokemon B&W 2. Maybe they just want to stick with the engine that powered the prequels and because DS has such a high install base already it seems logical. I agree with the author, if Nintendo made both a 3DS & DS version of the game, it would please both parties.

A lot of people are like "the 3DS plays DS games so its not big deal" Well it kind of is when the only other Pokemon game you have on the 3DS at the moment is a stupid Wii remake.

Everyone is hailing how the 3DS will get its own Pokemon game but the case still stands that if a company wants to really push a product and fill people with hope and what not. They should eventually deliver and as it stands the 3DS only has a handful of games that really meet those standards.

Black and White 2? They couldn't have titled it something else? >_>

turokgames2094d ago

They ran out of colors, duh :P

KingNintendoFanboy2094d ago

Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will be the next ones on 3DS! I'm calling it now!

PaladinXII2094d ago

Are you not in favor of color blind people having a place in gaming? j/k

Seriously, it's a direct sequel, similar to the Final Fantasy games with immediate follow-ups (X-2, XII-2, XIII-2).

You know, at first I was sceptical, but turns out there are a shitload of DSes out there.
