While an Australian release date has not yet been announced, Nintendo has confirmed that North America will receive both Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 on 12 October 2012. Moreover, Pokémon Dream Radar will also be available in the Nintendo eShop on the same day.

Dream Radar will allow Nintendo 3DS owners to "catch their favourite Pokémon, including some very rare ones, via the Nintendo 3DS cameras, using motion control and augmented-reality technology and transfer them into Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2," says Nintendo.

Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 are both set in the Unova Region two years after the events of Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version. Says Nintendo, "there are many new areas to discover, and changes to familiar places for you to explore. One new area is Virbank City, home to Pokéstar Studios. Players will be able to visit Pokéstar Studios and star in their own movie with their favourite Pokémon."

We'll let you know when an Australian/New Zealand release date has been announced.
