BW2 are only like three and a half months away. Am I the only one who's excited to see the massive infodumps we'll be getting in the March/April/May CoroCoro issues?
I'm wondering when they'll get released here in the states. Hopefully towards end of the year.
I'm also wondering what types the new formes of Kyurem will be.
Well, this is the first time that a Pokémon game was announced in Japan and the US simultaneously, so the releases might be a little closer together than usual Maybe even, dare I say, simultaneous Japanese/American release?
But not the reveal of B/W themselves.
Zekrom and Reshiram were unveiled near-simultaneously internationally and the difference in the reveal of the game titles between regions was about two months.
People who continue to clamor for a simultaneous international release seem to forget that if we were getting such a release, the English-language official website would have no reason to hide that fact. It's nearly March already - wouldn't they have just as much reason to reveal a June-ish release date as the Japanese website does?
Make no mistake, they aren't rushing this game. They just believe, especially in Japan, that a long period between reveal and release is bad for the hype machine.
