UPDATE: Nintendo of America has confirmed an Autumn 2012 release for the US.

I know what you’re thinking. “It’s more than a month early for April Fool’s, isn’t it?” However, this break was made just a few hours ago, on the Japanese program Pokemon Smash! with the Pokemon director himself, Junichi Masuda, stepping on the set to deliver the news.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2. What are those strange-looking mascots? They happen to be new formes of the Boundary pokemon, Kyurem. Masuda refers to them as Black Kyurem and White Kyurem. These formes are also set to appear in the upcoming Keldeo movie, mentioned in this article.

Not much else is known about them, except that they appear to be based on Zekrom and Reshiram, who together are mentioned in Unova legend as once having been a single pokemon. It is currently unknown as to why Kyurem appears to have combined with them, instead of the two being combined together in their original state. More information will be released soon for certain, as the games are scheduled for a Japan release in June of this year. These games will be playable on the Nintendo DS, as well as in 2D on the 3DS.
