Nightly News Roundup

Leaked Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 info!

Japanese manga and gaming magazine, CoroCoro is well known for being first on the list to release new info regarding the Pokémon franchise, but in the past few days, the upcoming issue has had a bit of a leak! Images of the yet-to-be-released issue have surfaced on the internet, revealing yet more tasty morsels of info about the next highly-anticipated chapters in the Pokémon saga.

Heretofore unknown info that has been revealed includes: Nimbasa City’s Gym Leader Elesa dyeing her hair black, with a new fashion show style Gym, and a Flaaffy on her team; two different branches of Team Plasma interacting with each other; new designs for Black City and White Forest; the return of the Poké Transfer feature to import Pokémon from Generation IV games; new Sacred Beast Formes for Thundurus, Landorus, and Tornadus (along with different abilities for the new Formes); Porygon’s availability through the upcoming Pokémon Dream Radar Nintendo 3DS app; a new Resolution Forme for Keldeo; a Japanese distribution event for Meloetta; and finally, a new cave area in each game – Black 2 has a water cave, while White 2 has a lava cave (Team Aqua and Team Magma resurfacing, perhaps?).

Also leaked was info for an official player’s guide, to be released in Japan on August 11th, which specifically references Genesect. Genesect has yet to be officially revealed, so this might mean that it receives its official unveiling sometime before the guide’s release.

Golden Sun sequel dependent on demand

Fans of the original Golden Sun RPG back on Game Boy Advance will be familiar with its developers at Camelot’s penchant for cliffhangers. The original game ended with a ‘To Be Continued’ screen that left players drooling with anticipation for the next instalment, Golden Sun: The Lost Age, which concluded the storyline of Isaac and his friends. Then, with Golden Sun: Dark Dawn on Nintendo DS, set 30 years after the previous games, we were confronted with a similar ending. Fans were sort of expecting a sequel as a given, considering the events of the game’s final moments, but that may not be the case.

In a recent interview, Hiroyuki Takahashi of Camelot said that the creation of a sequel to the modern RPG classic is entirely reliant on fan support.

“I think that honestly it may not be so likely because Golden Sun really requires a full effort to be put in. But of course, if there are enough people saying that we really must create another game, then we may just have to listen to them. Still, you would need to give me a bit of time to work on ideas for the story before we could release a fourth game in the series.”

Put simply, a fourth iteration in the Golden Sun franchise wasn’t at the top of their list, but if enough people want one, it’ll happen. Get sending those emails!

    Camelot needs to get with Nintendo to offer previous golden sun GBA games on the eshop. That would increase/revive the fan base. I unfortunately missed it due to low funds at the time.
