The map will feature new elements due to it becoming partially frozen, while other areas such as Route 4 have been updated.

Players will begin their journey at the all-new Hiougi City, which offers shops, underwater tunnels, a Pokémon Centre and a Trainer School.

New characters include Poison-based gym leader Homika, who stars in the anime series this June, as well as water-type gym leader Shizui and a researcher named Akuroma.

Finally, reverse legendary Pokemon Black Kyurem will learn the move Freeze Shock, while White Kyurem knows Ice Burn.

Announced earlier this year, the games mark the first straight sequels in the core Pokemon series.

Pokemon Black and White 2 will be available on Nintendo DS this year worldwide.
