Nintendo News: Two Special Events Celebrate the Launch Week of Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2

Nintendo is hosting two special events in New York to celebrate the upcoming launch of Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 for the Nintendo DS family of portable video game systems. On Oct. 6 at the Nintendo World store from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., fans can gather for a chance to be among the first in the nation to purchase the games in advance of their Oct. 7 release. Additionally, the first 1,000 people in line to purchase either game will receive a unique Pokémon scarf, and all attendees will have the opportunity to take photos with costumed characters of Pokémon Snivy, Tepig and Oshawott.

A week later on Oct. 13, during New York Comic-Con, Pokémon fans can participate in a massive interactive experience at the nearby PokémonBlack Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 Launch Celebration, enjoying a wide array of activities highlighting the imaginative fun of the Pokémon franchise. Planned activities include live performances from the Chicago-based band I Fight Dragons, a live stage show, a Pokémon photo booth, an opportunity to receive the mythical Pokémon Genesect for attendees who bring their Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo DS and copy of the game, hands-on time with Pokédex 3D Pro for Nintendo 3DS prior to its Nov. 8 launch and live Pokémon-themed ice sculpting.

Attendees who participate in the event’s activities will receive tickets that can be redeemed on-site during event hours for a variety of Pokémon giveaways (while supplies last). The Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 Launch Celebration will be open from noon to 8 p.m. at SIR Stage37 at 508 W. 37th St. (one block north of the Javits Center).
