Pokémon tease suggests news drop next week

Wednesday, 2nd January 2013 02:39 GMT By Brenna Hillier

A new TV advertisement for Pokémon Black & White 2 promises a reveal next week.

According to Gematsu‘s translation of Japanese reports, the commercial says the “latest information” regarding the franchise will be shared on January 8.

These teases have disappointed in the past, revealing tie-in media, but in combination with a game ad this one might just mean we’re in for something a little heftier. Stay tuned.

Pokémon Black & White 2 launched on DS in October; it seems unlikely a new game will be announced this early, despite hopes for a 3DS release. A tournament or some sort of DLC is possible.

    Remember, the advert was in Japan, not the west, BW2 was released in Japan June/July 2012, It wouldn’t be unusual to tease some form of new game now, to be released in September. Think back to how the original Black and White games were teased. It’s also been said that the director of GAMEFREAK Mr. Morimoto will be appearing on “Pokémon Smash” on the 6th of January with some interesting news.

    @1 Food for thought, yep. I try to err on the side of caution when on the record, but I really wouldn’t be surprised if it was a 3DS game.
