For the first time in its history, the Pokemon franchise will feature direct sequels, starting with Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2. Sequels to Pokemon Black and Pokemon White respectively, Pokemon "BW2" - as the games are called in shorthand by fans - will place you two years later in the world Black and White begun, and will feature new male and female player protagonists, new gyms, new forms for Pokemon such as Kyurem, and a changing Unova. The first English-language trailer for the games can be seen above.
Pokemon BW2 will be released in Japan on June 23rd. Its North American release will be sometime in the fall.
