Default Nintendo Direct Conference Reveals News 3DS Games, New BW2 Trailer

The Nintendo Direct Conference revealed two upcoming Pokémon "games" for the 3DS; the first one being Pokémon AR Searcher. The player searches for Pokémon in the real-world looking through their 3DS screen, and shining a light on their silhouettes to identify them. Pokémon found in this way may be sent to Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, with the announcement noting that very rare Pokémon may be obtained in this manner. It will cost Ľ300 on the Nintendo eShop-roughly the equivalent of $4.00, and is to be released in Japan on June 23rd, the same day as Pokémon Black and White 2. PokéBeach has also made note that the silhouette featured in the demonstration (able to be viewed below in the "Gameplay Pictures") does not seem to match any known bird-like Pokémon, supported by a comparison image made by PokéBeach user Gin. This may suggest that either players will have to identify the Pokémon based on a partially inaccurate silhouette (to increase difficulty of gameplay), or that an (or multiple) as-of-yet unknown Pokémon may be featured in Pokémon AR Searcher as well as Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.

The second game announced was an expansion on the original Pokédex 3D, entitled "National Pokédex 3D Pro". It will contain Pokémon from all generations, not just Unova-region Pokémon, as well as Kyurem's two new forms, Black Kyurem and White Kyurem. It will also have augmented-reality features, and will come at a cost, Ľ1500 (roughly $18.00). This app will go on sale beginning on July 17th of this year.

Whilst no additional plot details were introduced in the new Black 2 and White 2 trailer, it does feature new scenes of numerous previously-seen aspects, such as:
-Wild Pokémon Battles, showing that the grass in the background of a battle setting is now also animated to blow in the wind.
-Another clip showcasing the game's movie theater aspects with a hero fighting a mechanical Tyranitar.
-Gym Leader Shizui's battle animation (also supporting that all trainers in the game will have animated sprites) and more clips of his Gym's lily pad puzzle.
-The trailer's music also features remixes of the Title Screen Theme and Gym Leader's Last Pokémon theme from the original Black and White, suggesting that the former may be somehow featured in the new games in another way (given that it has been demonstrated from Opening and Title Screen footage that these games have a new theme for the Title Screen). The latter also supports the possibility of all returning themes from the original Black and White being remixed, as have been seen with the Wild Battle and Trainer Battle themes already.

The trailer in question may be viewed below:

That's enough motivation for me to start saving up for this. -checks the price of it- $4? That means I have no excuse not to get this now.

And if prices work anything like what's actually happening, the price will not be a direct conversion - it might end up in the $3 territory.

(must get the app when it shows up)

I've gotta say that those two apps look pretty interesting. I'll definitely need to find out more on them towards their release.

Pokedex 3D was pretty sweet, but the Pro version sounds pure beast. The AR app sounds like it'll give an edge in my game, too.

This AR app is definitely more interesting than the PokéWalker.

That AR App is going to become most used game in the first 3 days within released. And those videos...I need a time machine. I just can't WAIT for the future.
Although, 20 bucks sounds a little rich for my blood, but I'll see what I can do.

Who's that pokémon in the AR searcher picture? I hope it's not a new one.

Looks like it could be Archeops, but I'm not sure. But, despite all the traditions they've already broken, I'm pretty sure they can't just make new Pokémon in the same generation.

It could be a new form, like in Platinum and Rotom.

Ho-Oh does not have such a big feather on his head.

We could easily go into a Pokédex and look up every flying type and match up the ones with wings similar to the silhouette. Whatever it is, I want it.

I read on a site that the release date is "Sep. 30th 2012". I dont think its a fully a set date but its pretty close as its during the fall of 2012 like they said.

Mystery solved. According to leaked CoroCoro scans, Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus are getting new formes. Tornadus matches the silhouette found in the AR searcher.

Wow, everything seems to be getting something new doesn't it? And it also looks like Nintendo doesn't seem to be running out from idea's, so that's good.
