Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 AU/NZ release date announced

Nintendo Australia has just annouced that Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2 will be arriving in Australia and New Zealand on the 11th of October.

For comparison, Europe will receive the titles on the 12th of October, and America will receive their on the 7th.

The two new mainline titles' development is a bit of a break from tradition for series developer Game Freak, being the first time the hugely popular series has iterated straight into a direct sequel, as opposed to the retooled releases we've come to expect from each Pokémon "generation".

Nintendo Australia also took the opportunity to announce that the downloadable eShop release of Pokémon Dream Radar would coincide with the two flagship titles' release.
