Pokemon Black/White Version 2 Japanese Cover Art Revealed

The latest in GameFreak's franchise will be released this June in Japan but North America won't be catching them all until later on this fall.

Pokemon Black/White Version 2, which was announced quite recently on Pokemon Smash, has had it's Japanese cover art released - and I think they look kind of awesome.

The latest in GameFreak's franchise will be released in Japan in June, but North America won't be catching them all until later on this fall. To be honest, I'm a little surprised that this title will even be seeing the light of day on US shores. Usually, when we get an "enhanced" version of a Pokemon game like this, it's done with a single title with a slightly similar title to the original games. We saw this with Pokemon Platinum, which was an enhanced version of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. However, this time, we have two "enhanced" version for each version of the game - so we'll have Pokemon White 2 and Pokemon Black 2. It seems unclear whether this will be implemented through cosmetically, or if it will be done through something deeper, such as gameplay. There is very little information available for these games at the moment as to what changes the developers have made - whether there will be even more new Pokemon added (perhaps some new Legendary Pokemon? That would be interesting, and would give the completionists something to smile over) or gameplay elements. I'm sure we would all like to see some decent changes made - not only to justify the price, but also to justify the need for two separate titles instead of the usual one. Still, I for one, am looking forward to more details on this title and hope that the cover art we get is as awesome as these.
