Today marked the day a brand new edition of our quickly becoming much loved feature Nintendo Direct went live across Japan, and Europe bringing us all the latest and greatest announcements and news to do with everything Nintendo. Among the news today was the announcement of two new Nintendo 3DSWare Pokémon titles which will be released through the eShop in Europe later this year. Read on to find out more!
So, to start off with Nintendo revealed an update to the currently released Pokédex 3D app which can be downloaded from the 3DS's eShop. The new title will go under the name of Pokédex 3D Pro and acts as an expansion to the first title. However, Pokédex 3D Pro won't be free like the first title, in Japan it will be released with a price tag of 1500 yen (about £11.40 to us).
From the little details we know it seems the PokéDex app will work the same way as the first, but this time it will include every Pokémon from throughout the history of the series including all the different formes.
Now the second title revealed might be of slightly more interest to you. The second app is titled Pokémon AR Searcher and is set to work alongside Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2 (its even being released on the same day as the two games in Japan). The game sees players searching for Pokémon which can be caught and then sent over to Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2. It is thought some pretty rare Pokémon can be obtained from the app.
Don't forget Japanese TV show Pokémon Smash airs again later, so we could have some interesting details about Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2 from that.
