The latest issue of Japanese magazine CoroCoro has confirmed several new features on the way for Pokémon Black & White. If played on the 3DS or the DSi, two players will be able to hold video chats over the Nintendo Wi-Fi service, and four players will be able to do the same via a local network using the "Live Caster" feature. This feature will be unavaliable to anyone playing the game on a DS that lacks a camera.
Pokémon Black & White will also feature a mode similar to the "Tag Mode" recently seen in Dragon Quest IX named "Pass By Mode", but details of how this feature works in gameplay have yet to be released. Pokémon Black & White are currently scheduled to be released in Japan on September 18th 2010, with releases in the US and Europe following in Spring 2011.
