Two new Pokémon titles for Nintendo 3DS are coming soon, complementing the upcoming launch of Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 for the Nintendo DS family of systems later this year. In addition to the new entries into the series, Pokédex 3D Pro and Pokémon Dream Radar will both release in Australia and New Zealand in Spring 2012, giving players new ways to capture and learn about their favourite Pokémon.
Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 bring players back to the Unova region two years after the events of Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version. Players who are familiar with Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version will immediately notice that the Unova region has transformed significantly in the new games. Embark on a brand new adventure starting in the new Aspertia City and discover what strange events are occurring and why the Unova region has changed two years after Team Plasma's defeat.
Players can also look forward to two new Legendary Pokémon, Black Kyurem and White Kyurem, which are featured on the games' packaging. These powerful Legendary Pokémon each boast new devastating Ice-type signature moves; Black Kyurem knows Freeze Shock and White Kyurem comes ready for battle with Ice Burn. Black Kyurem will be available exclusively in Pokémon Black Version 2, while White Kyurem will only be found in Pokémon White Version 2. Developed for the Nintendo DS family of systems, the games can also be played on the Nintendo 3DS system in 2D mode.
Pokémon Dream Radar lets players use several different features of the Nintendo 3DS system, including the Nintendo 3DS camera, motion control, and augmented reality technology by moving the Nintendo 3DS to discover hidden Pokémon. Shooting the Pokémon with beams allows players to catch them. Caught Pokémon from Pokémon Dream Radar can be transferred into Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, helping players build their roster of Pokémon. Pokémon Dream Radar also includes some hard to get Pokémon, giving players even more incentive to catch them for their game. Pokémon Dream Radar will be available for purchase via download from the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS.
Pokédex 3D Pro is a fully enhanced and upgraded version of the original Pokédex 3D application that includes detailed information about the more than 600 Pokémon featured in the history of the Pokémon video game series. Pokédex 3D Pro will include in-depth sorting, comparison and ranking tools, as well as comprehensive details on what moves each Pokémon can learn and how it evolves. The application also includes extensive augmented reality capabilities, including the ability to take photos of Pokémon in the real world. With Pokédex 3D Pro, all Pokémon are unlocked from the start, allowing players to access a wealth of information that will be useful as they play through Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2. Pokédex 3D Pro will be available for purchase via download from the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS.
