Pokémon Black and White 2 release date

Unova adventure on the horizon.

DS sequels Pokémon Black and White 2 will be released in Europe on 12th October, Nintendo has revealed.

That's five days after the games hit North America, on 5th October.

The new games see players return to the Unova region of Pokémon Black and White, albeit with fresh areas to explore.

More Pokémon are available to catch from the very start of the game, including breeds found outside of Unova. New cities and characters will feature in a plotline that picks up two years after the original Black and White.

Pokémon Dream Radar, a 3DS app which allows you to catch Pokémon using the handheld's AR features, will launch simultaneously. You'll be able to transfer captured critters, including rare species, into Pokémon Black and White 2.
