New Screenshots For Pokémon Black And Pokémon White Have Been Released

The Japan Pokémon Black And Pokémon White website has been updated with official screenshots of the game. these screenshots are the same as those that were leaked earlier. These screenshots are in-game and show off many new parts of the game. the more noticeable changes shown are the town scape, the bridge, and the new battle scene.

But, the pictures of the battle scene and the cave with blue electricity, the bridge, and the city scape lead me to think that whilst the game can be played on the Nintendo DS, these screens show parts of the game that would take advantage of the 3D screens on the Nintendo 3DS. this is pure speculation on my part, but we already know that the 3DS can play DS games.i doubt that Pokémon Black And Pokémon White would have full 3DS stuff built in, as the game is coming out presumably before the Nintendo 3DS, but i do expect some functionality.


EA Have Released New Screenshots For Green Day Rock Band

EA have released new screenshots for Green Day: Rock Band. these screenshots are in-game and are a mix of in-game action and in-game cutscenes. Though the game is out on the Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360, these screenshots appear to be from either the PS3 or 360 version of the game. The in-game action screenshots appear to show the different locations in the game where Green Day songs can be played, whilst the cutscene screenshots focus on the Green Day band members.
