Black/White Localization Info Revealed

By zsaberslash on February 1, 2011

In a recent interview Joel Simon, Nintendo of America's localization coordinator, revealed a few aspects on the localization of Pokemon Black and White. Firstly, the Dream World feature will be delayed until approximately 1 month after launch to avoid the server issues that the Japanese version had. In addition, a hot spot service might be offered similar to the Poké Power Spot initiative currently in place in many Japanese stores and restaurants.

He also mentioned that Nintendo expects the Dream World to be more popular overseas than in Japan. He finally noted that Treehouse, who have been translating the main series games prior to Heart Gold/Soul Silver, are not translating Black and White and that TPCi will be doing the translation.

Pokémon Black/White - First minutes of gameplay, B/W DSi consoles and event (UK)

By Ningamer on January 31, 2011

The lovely people over at the Official Nintendo Magazine in the UK have recently posted a small piece of gameplay from the English versions of Pokémon Black. The video includes all the footage from as soon as you boot up the game to after the first of your battles with your childhood friends. Click here for the full article and the video.

As well as that, the Official Nintendo Magazine have also announced that the special Pokémon Black/White DSi console that was released in Japan last year will also be coming to the UK, and will be distributed by GAME. The DSis will be black or white, and will have Zekrom and Reshiram engraved into them.

One final small announcement, for a currently unknown limited amount of time after the launch of Black and White, the Liberty Pass event will be distributed through the UK wirelessly by selected retailers, rather than, or possibly as well as, distribution over Wi-Fi like Japan. The Liberty Pass will gain you access to Liberty Island, where you can find and capture the legendary Pokémon Victini.
However, according to this article (Which was published 3 days earlier), the Liberty Pass will be given away via Wi-Fi from launch day up until 22 April.

Pokémon Black/White pre-order bonus / Event reminders

By Yoshi648 on January 30, 2011

For those of you pre-ordering (or planning to pre-order) Pokémon Black and/or White from Toys R Us, you will receive a pre-order bonus of a Reshiram or Zekrom Wall Cling (essentially a giant wall sticker). While not as cool as a figurine, it could help spruce up your empty bedroom walls. It is unknown at this time if this is exclusive to just Toys R Us or will be available for all locations.

While on the topic of Toys R Us, today also starts the Ash's Pikachu event which will run until February 13th. In addition, GameStop is also giving away the third of the legendary beasts, Suicune, tomorrow until February 7th. Both events can be downloaded to all of the fourth generation games (D/P/Pt/HG/SS).

The dub titles for the first two episodes of Pokémon Black and White have been revealed to be "In the Shadow of Zekrom!" for episode 1, and "Enter Iris and Axew!", for episode 2. Interestingly enough, the titles aren't a reference to a popular catchphrase, or puns.
