Pokemon Black/White 2 confirmed

Series-first numerical sequel headed for DS in June in Japan

As teased, Pokémon game director Junichi Masuda DID have an "important" announcement to make today - confirmation of the next Pokemon game - Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2.


Update: The official Pokemon website has confirmed the US release as "coming soon". That's all. Update ends.

This is the first time in the series that a numerical sequel will be release instead of there being a different colour in the title.

3DS hopefuls will perhaps be disappointed to hear that the game is headed to DS (although of course backwards compatibility means it'll be playable on 3DS), and will be out in Japan in June.

No further details were shared, but a teaser site has been launched showing the two new legendary Pokemon (pictured) to star in the sequel, the names of whom Masuda says he'll reveal next week.
