Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, hens return two years later in Black2 & White2.

It IS on the DS. It's just 3DS compatible like every single other DS game.

I'm glad, for the most part that it'll be on DS. I just got back into Pokemon, and thus have only owned my DSi a few months ago.

There will probably be 3DS enhanced features like there were before with the DSi.

I wasn't surprised that it was going to be for Nintendo DS, as I assumed it was going to be Pokémon Gray, turned out to be two sequels to Black/White. Now I wish it was a 3DS exclusive, 'cause they could've used 3D models, but I assume that will be left for generation 6, more than likely.

I would have rathered it be a 3DS exclusive. Sure it's "3ds compatible" but compatibilty with a next gen console and actually being FOR a next gen console are two completely different things. It'll be awfully hard to do all these amazing thing Nintendo has promised on a DSi.

The reason that they are for the DS and not 3DS is because Black and White were already pretty far in development when Gamefreak received the 3DS Dev kit used to make games for the 3DS.

Sure, they could have made B2/W2 completely from scratch, but that probably would have added at least a year onto the release date for very minor differences.

I was looking at the Pokemon Black and White 2 official website and I stumbled across something peculiar. I was looking at the bottom and I saw one number and two letters in the English language, 3DS. Does this mean that Pokemon Black and White 2 are coming out for the 3DS?

There's a screenshot in the attachments taken from the website.
Also, Here's the link to the official website. Go to the bottom of the page and look at the right corner:http://www.pokemon.co.jp/ex/b2w2/

Well people are saying it officially isn't (afaik I think that's right) so I merged with Platform Discussion so you can discuss how you feel about it.

Please read the official announcement on Pokemon.com. Just click on the preview and it should lead you to a page with brief, useless information on the new games.

Quote:
Pokémon fans, get excited for two incredible new adventures! Announcing Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, coming soon for the Nintendo DS™ family of systems. The games can also be played in 2D on the Nintendo 3DS™ system.
The games are being released for the Nintendo DS. There aren't going to be any extra features if played on the 3DS; if played on the 3DS it would only be taking advantage of the system's backwards compatibility.

I felt down when I read that the games where for the Nintendo DS and not 3DS, but I sort of expected it anyway, I just can't wait for a mainstream Pokemon game on 3DS, they could do loads of things to suprise us with 3D I imagine... But hey, I have a feeling these 'sequels' will be much greater than their predecessor.

Depends on how they're doing it. It's not necessarily hard to port a DS game to the 3DS, and for all we know, they've probably been porting the engine simultaneously inside GameFreak. They'd have to retexture a lot of things (which isn't hard to do) and some code would need to be changed as well.

Still up in the clouds as to how minor the differences in these games are.

I would have rather it be on 3DS only because then Nica would have to get one >:) I feel that the DS is in the past now and they should just move forward to 3DS only. I'm not sure if the 3D enhancements will be just some fancy graphics on Skyarrow Bridge and Castelia City or a full blown battle revamp like Colosseum. I'll be happy with either though.

C'mon, let's be nice to Nica.
Personally, I think it should be on the DS because that's what B/W were on. I could see them doing R/S remakes on the 3DS, but not B2/W2.
