That? Up there? It's an image from Pokémon Black. Or Pokémon White. It comes from a video, posted below, that shows off that in motion. It's from some crazy looking Japanese television show that really, really makes me wish I lived in the Land of the Rising Sun. Seriously, there are a bunch of guys in silver suits dancing around with a Chimchar. It's like what I dream about when I play too much HeartGold before I go to sleep. It's freaking heaven.
Take a look below for the first footage of Pokémon Black/White. You might want to sit down for this, since it's a more comfortable way of watching videos on the internet.
I know, right? The city is in 3D, which is a huge step up from the last few games, which only had mild 3D elements. Beyond that, the video is a bit stale when it comes to new information, since the only battle shot is the still frame we saw last week being pointed at by a Japanese guy with a Hitler mustache. In other words, the video is absolutely worth watching, but not really because of the Pokémon stuff. That's secondary to seeing what sort of programming the Japanese people think is good for children.
Lucky bastards. I wish our TV was that good. We'll keep you posted on anything that even smells like Pokémon White/Black.
