Nintendo confirmed last week that Pokemon Black 2 & White 2 will be coming to North America on October 7 – the first Sunday of the month. Along with the DS sequels will be the launch of the 3DS “companion game”, Pokemon Dream Radar – available to download for free on the Nintendo eShop.
The launch of the highly-anticipated sequels is something I’m naturally very excited about, but the 3DS app sounds pretty enticing as well. Pokemon Dream Radar is basically a 3D shooter game that allows you to catch some exclusive Pokemon using the 3DS’s AR capabilities.
Imagine Face Raiders, only with Pokemon in your room – and not the horribly-deformed floating faces of your friends. After snagging the monsters, you can transfer them to your copy of Black 2 or White 2. Here’s a trailer:
Any thoughts? Are you picking up a copy of Black 2 or White 2? I’m actually having trouble deciding between the two versions – I have a copy of Pokemon White, but I might get Black 2, considering that the Zekrom/Kyruem mash-up appears on the cover of that version, not White 2. What about Dream Radar? Share your comments below!
