Pokémon: Black and Pokémon: White will be released in North America on March 6. The games feature 150 new Pokémon, as well as an entirely new region to explore. The price for the games will be $34.99 and has been rated "E" for Everyone by the ESRB.
"Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version represent a generational leap forward for the renowned series, delivering an unprecedented number of new Pokémon to catch, battle and trade," said Marc Franklin, Nintendo of America's director of Public Relations. "Whether you have played the Pokémon video games before or are just getting interested in them, you won't want to miss Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version."
Each game will feature exclusive features that players will only see if they play both games, including exclusive areas and Pokémon. Pokémon: Black, for example, will feature the legendary Reshiram, while White will allow players to catch Zekrom. Black will feature a metropolitan area named Black City, and White will feature a greener area known as White Forest.
There are also new features for the series that can be found in both titles, including the changing of seasons. This not only affects the look of the game world, but also some Pokémon and areas can only be caught/accessed during certain seasons.
Players will also have a choice to make when it comes to their starter Pokémon, with the grass-type Snivy, the fire-type Tepig, or the water-type Oshawott at their fingertips. Until the end of the main story, players will only see the many new Pokémon introduced into these two games. For more information on these two titles, fans can see the official site here.
