The next entries in the popular Pokemon franchise are due this summer in Japan. Game Freak director Junichi Masuda revealed Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2 today on the Japanese television show Pokemon Smash, according to a report from Andriasang.
Both titles are due to ship for the DS this June in Japan. No mention was made concerning when the titles will launch outside of the island nation. A Japanese website for the games is currently live, which shows the titles' logos and legendary Pokemon.
Yesterday, Masuda teased a Pokemon announcement, indicating that the reveal would be "very important."
Pokemon Black and Pokemon White, which shipped during March 2011 and went on to combine for sales of over 11 million, are the most recent installments in the core franchise. For more on those titles, check out GameSpot's reviews of Pokemon Black and White.
