I'm hoping for early-mid September, considering my Birthday just so happens to be around that time. ^o^

Oh thanks Nintendo. You really helped the date there.

"Fall" being September-November so probably somewhere around there.

I'm predicting anywhere from mid September to early October. That feels about right to me.

Well I keep thinking it'll be early October so you have a sort of three month gap which is half of BW's waiting time.

Late September/early October IMO.

I think its possible we could get a release date at E3 sometime next week. I doubt they'll actually cover B2W2 there, but I'm sure Nintendo will make a passing mention of it and could announce the release date. Coverage for the English versions has already started on the English Pokemon website (posted some screenshots and the Unova map) so its possible we'll get a release date very soon.

We most likely won't get an official release date until its released in Japan, even if TPCi already has their copies to translate and produce.

Maybe but I think it might not be until the advertisements come on TV tbh. It still seems way too soon to hear of a release date when the English players know barely anything and we didn't get the Japanese one too long ago (well, like a month and a half?)

I predict sometime around September.

Given that my birthday is in the following month, I want to get the games when that time comes cos I know how awesome they are!

However, the problem is that my region is usually the last of the English-speaking regions to get the new games. I just better hope my native Australia doesn't have to wait until 2013, if it's that long I'll be disappointed.

The last couple of games have been released about 6 months after the Japanese release date, so it wouldn't surprise me to see them out sometime in late-November or early-December, which would also help capitalize on sales around Christmas. If it were up to me, though, I would like to see simultaneous release dates with the Japanese versions.

Uh it was announced early on back in February the games will be released in North America in Autumn 2012. That's only gonna be about three or four months since the Japanese release (June 23,2012) November or December wouldn't exactly be Autumn but more like Winter.

I'm really thinking it will be released in late September or mid to late October . This gives me time to get money before then to buy the games.
Hope they announce the English release dates soon.

True, but technically autumn lasts from September 22nd to December 20th this year, so it could realistically be released anytime between then.

Like I said, I would prefer it to be sooner rather than later, but something's telling me it might not work out like that.

Sometime in August would be nice. But it won't happen. XD
I honestly think it will be anywhere from Halloween to Thanksgiving. (Thats October 31st - November 22, for those of you who don't know).

Also, coincidentally, the Japanese version is out on my birthday, haha.

I really hope it's at least before September, perhaps early August, that's my summer all together then. :3

At a push November but I'd guess late September or early October, one of the two.

i still say late august or early September.

i wouldn't really understand why they would release the games in November, if they do that they might as well wait until the holiday season to get more money out of it.

All sites that can Preorder it have it as October 2012. There is no definate date yet and it can be pushed back or forward depending on how early they start translating and producing copies.

I'm hoping they'll make the release date go in line with the release date for the Japanese B/W games, which would be in September. :B

That's shooting at the moon, here. I'm not expecting these games will be available to the masses outside of Japan until four months after the initial Japanese release, & that's my optimistic guess.

It's not a bad idea to show a little bit more optimism these days, because it seems The Pokémon Company International are committing themselves to closing the gap between releases of their games (and by extension, the anime), period.

They did a near-same day announcement as Japan on Black 2 and White 2, after all. That's a good sign.

they said Fall 2012, which is from August to October, so I doubt a Christmas release, and I'm even more doubtful of a November release, because like i said before that would be a bad business move

I'm going with the popular, mid to late September, belief. Though the websites selling the games say October, only they can do as much as theorize about the release date. As far as a Christmas release: yeah, no. No business man at GF in their right mind would do that. Sure, sales would be beautiful the day after, but they run the risk of under production, as well as demand severely decreasing afterwards, due to people having their minds set on Christmas, still. There are MANY things that could go incredibly wrong for GF if they did it.
