I love ya Nintendo, but you’re killing me here. In a move sure to give those calling the Pokémon franchise a cashgrab incredibly smug smiles, Nintendo has announced their plan to follow up Pokémon Black and Pokémon White, the paired games that kicked of the beloved RPG’s fifth generation: Pokemon Black 2 Version and Pokemon White 2 Version. The announcement, broken by the Japanese TV show Pokémon Smash, confirms that these games are to be released for the Nintendo DS in Japan during June of this year.
I don’t even know anymore. For ages, Nintendo and Game Freak have tied up each Pokémon generation with a single game that incorporates elements of both previous versions and adds quite a few new things. All I can say is, there better be some pretty spectacular additions to these two games to make this move seem justified.
