What he said.

Hopefully there will be more new areas then old, but that probably wont be the case. I will most likely pick it up when it comes out.

@DarthOrange: It is for DS however you can play it in your 3DS :)

maybe we will see new Pokémon for 3DS next year because it will need more time for developed it.

I love it, it looks great.
 
Still have to finish White but I like the whole new style (and pokeymans!) they've got going with the franchise, now we just need that Wii U version in 3d.

@JJOR64: Judging from the map, there's 4-5 new areas. Not bad, considering what we get from the usual third version rehashes, this seems to be a lot more.

The hardcore fanboys trying to pass this off as a "whole new game!" are a bit laughable, but having a continuing story sounds great and I'm loving the gym leaders, especially the punk rock girl with the Scolipede guitar. She instantly looks better than half the gym leaders we had in the original Black/White.

I still don't understand why they wouldn't just make it for 3ds. They want people to buy their newer system right?

Following your typical Pokemon release schedule, this is the "3rd" game in the series (Red Blue Yellow, Gold Silver Crystal, etc), except they're also splitting these into two games because they like to print money. Also, there looks to be significant enough changes this time around. The thing they're re-using is the world map (obviously modified).

The point is... the next game will be a true 3DS release, and keeping with the steady stream of Pokemon game releases, it's only a year away now. Well, a little longer for international release... but still.

That seems a bit too much like hard work. Wouldn't want to progress the series too much now, there's money to be made.

Yep, and once they'd do that people would actually have at least decent expectations for upcoming Pokemon Editions - which would make it even harder for those poor souls!

Is it called "Pokemon White/Black Version 2"? That would be wierd considering how all of the previous generations have gone, name-wise. I was expecting like "Pokemon Grey" or "Pokemon YinYang Edition" or something cool.

Pokemon is something I will always buy, and the fact that these are sequels to the original games still makes me very intrigued.
