In Black and White 2, your journey will take you through new paths of the Unova region, to remodeled gyms and transformed cities.
The new games see players return to the Unova region of Pokmon Black and White, albeit with fresh areas to explore.
More Pokmon are available to catch from the very start of the game, including breeds found outside of Unova.
There's a new plot, which for better and worse doesn't resemble that of the original Black and White.
There are an enormous, unprecedented number of Pokemon to capture and train.
You set off from a previously undiscovered corner of Unova, pick your obligatory starter, and begin your quest to collect all eight gym badges while thwarting whatever nefarious, misguided schemes that Plasma can cook up.
The set-up is familiar, but the quest itself is actually quite different.
DS sequels Pokmon Black and White 2 will be released in Europe on 12th October, Nintendo has revealed.
That's five days after the games hit North America, on 5th October.
