Pokemon Black & White Version 2 announced

Remakes and revamps are staples of cutesty collect-o-RPG series Pokémon, so it's no surprise that Nintendo has announced new versions of Pokémon Black and White are on the way. Breaking the tradition of upgrading the name's colours to something a little snazzier, they're named simply Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2.

As for what Black & White v2 will bring, Nintendo's more than a little vague. Legendary dragon Pokémon Kyurem will be available in White Kyurem and Black Kyurem flavours, but beyond that, all it has to say is that, "Fans can anticipate plenty of new surprises."

Fans hoping for a new Pokémon built especially for the Nintendo 3DS will need to keep waiting, as this is still being made for DS.

Pokémon Black & White v2 are slated to launch in North America this fall, first hitting Japan in June. Hopefully, before then, Nintendo will realize how perfect the names Pokémon Ebony & Ivory would be--the theme song's already sorted and everything.
