IGN have recently revealed that upcoming games Pokémon Black and White Versions will have enhanced features when played on the upcoming Nintendo 3DS console; however, 3D gameplay will not be supported. It is interesting to note that the 3DS' "StreetPass" feature does sound similar to the "Pass By" Mode of the C-Gear. This is similar to enhanced features the games have when played on a Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL (DSi LL in Japan), which allows Video Chat using the Xtransceiver
Earlier last year, it was announced that out of numerous developers, The Pokémon Company were given priority with development kits of the new console. It is likely that at that stage, Black and White were too far into development to shift to the upcoming console.
Pokémon Black and White were released in Japan on Sept. 18 2010, and the Nintendo 3DS is due out there on the 25th of this month. Black and White will see their English language debut in Europe on March 4 2011, with the 3DS being released on March 25 2011 (North American releases for each will follow 2 days after their respective European launches).
