Nintendo of America announced Pokémon Black/White 2 for a 2012 North American release the very same day, but didn’t provide a release timeframe. Today, they have. Pokémon Black/White 2 will release this fall in North America and Europe.

That's a long time to wait for Pokemon SEQUELS.

Well, now that I think about the wait-time for certain games to be localized... it's not that long of a wait. Though it's hard to believe they're trying to keep the DS alive and not making a beeline for the 3DS.

I'm so excited, I can't wait to play Black & White 2!!!!! I'll have to busy myself with Devil Survivor 2, Hyperdimension Neptunia 2, Tales of Graces F, Atelier Meruru, and Inazuma Eleven 2. Will that be enough?

Which points directly at the Nihil Novi principle, meaning that the game will be barely a step up from B&W, if a step up at all.
I'm calling it, it's just Pokemon Grey but with two games instead of one so people will buy more copies of the same game.
*Shakes fist* DAMN YOUUU! I was about to make a bet saying the exact same thing, gimme my hypothetical $50 immediately!

That's actually a short wait considering how long it takes to translate their other games.
Its because they don't have to translate the Pokemons name/trainers/abilities/moves/items/location, its already there.
Only new texts/areas/story.

HA and people expect great new things in this game. I scoff at them. XD

Personally I don't expect much 'new' stuff but I'll just wait for some general info to be out to conclude whether this is poo or not.

Pokemon main series games, despite being 'milked' and 'boring', have so far never failed to make me enjoy. I dunno why myself, but I can easily engross 4 hours on something so 'boring'.

Well I'll be getting it despite knowing practically nothing about the game. :x

Not really. A sequel wouldn't require as much work to be done as most of the core stuff is already done.

It's because it's not generic. It's safe to say that before Pokemon, most pople had never played a game like it. The closest similarity I can place to it is Earthbound MAYBE.

Well, if we want to look at it this way, we can say that the core stuff was made in 1996... :P

Seriously though, I was refering to the much "shorter" time span between HS/SS ---> B/W and B/W ---> B/W2.
