New York's famed Rockefeller Center will be the epicenter of an over-the-top
Pokémon celebration as Nintendo prepares to launch the new Pokémon Black
Version and Pokémon White Version video games for the Nintendo DS family of
systems across North America. On March 5, at the Nintendo World store, fans
will gather for a spectacular launch event and the chance to be among the first
in the nation to buy the games in advance of their official March 6 release.
The event will offer attendees an interactive experience that will take
consumers through stations featuring game-play kiosks, depictions of the games'
new starter and Legendary Pokémon, a download area for the Liberty Pass which
enables players to get the new Mythical Pokémon Victini in the Pokémon Black
Version and Pokémon White Version games, a photo booth and a special collection
of never-before-seen Pokémon artwork. Attendees will receive a "passport" upon
entry and earn a stamp for each station they experience. Once they have visited
all stations, fans will receive a special Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White
Version T-shirt, while supplies last.
Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version open a thrilling new chapter
in the beloved video game series, introducing more than 150 new Pokémon, new
battle systems, and a new region to explore. More information about Pokémon
Black Version and Pokémon White Version can be found at PokemonBlackWhite.com.
