Default Pokémon Black/White 2 official box art leaked

As the new April edition of CoroCoro continues to leak from Japan, we now have the new box art from the pair of Pokémon Black/White sequels. While the quality isn't the greatest, it's the best we have for now.

The issue has also confirmed a new Keldeo event at the movie theater for the Japanese release of the 15th movie for viewers to download the Pokémon to their games.



UPDATE 3/15
Better quality boxart

If you look at the box art, you can see that the legendary for the game has switched. Zekrom is on Black 2's cover, and Reshiram is on White 2's cover. This could imply a couple of things, and is definitely the basis for some more speculation.

Wow, just wow. Despite the poor quality, the box art itself is a pure jewel to be marveled at.

I remember noticing this as soon as the original image was released. I wonder why that is, though.

Same. I was of the opinion that since these are direct sequels, the players would have logically already caught their respective Legendary, meaning that the one belonging to N would likely be the one that is somehow involved with Kyurem now, which would also be a basis by which to re-introduce N as a (possibly ally) character. I did like how Looker mentions N being in another region post-credits, it's nice to know someone doesn't just disappear off the edge of the Earth after a battle.

I'm using advanced historical evidence to calculate this likely event.

What B2W2 boxart will look like in Japan

What B2W2 boxart will look like in America

America doesn't need all that fancy-pants special effects for their box art, Glitchy.

Well, it is confirmed by Serebii that these two games are not a third installment, but a continuation of the story. Anyway, the box arts seem cool and I assume the game should be promising.

New clothes are always a good thing and it went really well with Platinum, but what if there's the off chance that we end up with completely different people?

Copypasting what someone else said

Toshinobu Matsumiya has promised in a recent tweet that a lot of information will be revealed about the games around April 15. This is hardly surprising since by then only two months will be left until the games' release, but considering that Matsumiya is a scenario writer, there is a good chance this means that the coverage focus will be on the new story.

The story must surpass its prequel for the games to succeed. After Black and White's successful launch, fans are anticipating the best. Even I am interested to know what could be a good continuation for a Pokémon game. We never had something like that before.

I really like the box art. I hope that's what I'll be able to see when I buy the game. Right now, since Lent's going on, I'm not too crazy about them. But once it's finished, I'll probably be more exited for them.

Uh....

I really just have a problem with the severe lack of oral dentistry displayed by the designs of the new forms. Have you seen that underbite?

Also I wish they named it something other than "Black and White 2." I'm not suggesting another color or, god forbid, grey. But I was hoping that if it was going to be a continuation of the story, it would have some subtext besides it. Like, "Black and White 2: The Labyrinth of Lenora's Afro" or something.

The name is too long, it takes ages to be read and pronounced! But I didn't understand your first sentence, can you explain?

I think he's trying to say the teeth in the new designs are very messy... which I couldn't disagree with more (but what an odd thing to note out of all things).

Indeed it is an odd thing to point out at, but it seems I am blind not to find what is bad about them.
