The lights are on
Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 are Nintendo DS games, but they can be played on the 3DS. In order to make Pokemon fans feel they didn't upgrade for nothing, Nintendo is releasing a few of 3DS apps that will coordinate with Pokemon Black and White 2..
The first is an augmented reality game that will let you hunt down Pokemon in your living room, capture them, and use them in your game. Following that app, Nintendo has plans to release an updated version of the Pokedex.
Nintendo outlined these apps during its Nintendo Direct conference, which covered Japanese software and releases. These haven't been confirmed for North America yet, but there is a good chance we will see US versions around the same time as Pokemon Black and White 2 release. Nintendo also unveiled a new Japanese trailer for the games, which you can see below.
