Recent press releases from Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe state that Pokémon Black and White 2, announced over the weekend in Japan, will see an Autumn 2012 release in both regions. The games will be available in Japan in June.

The late 2012 release date is sooner than many expected. While there is currently no word on an Australian release date, the most recent Pokémon games in Europe, North America and Australia have seen releases within a few days of each other.

Pokémon Black and White 2 were recently revealed on Japanese TV show Pokémon Smash! in a special appearance by series director Junichi Masuda, and are being made for the Nintendo DS.
