Today, Nintendo drops some new gameplay info for the new Pokemon World Tournament mode that appears in Pokemon Black and Pokemon White Version 2.
The World Tournament mode will allow players to take on a number of Gym Leaders and Champions from previous Pokemon installments -- including Johto Region champ Lance and Sinnoh Region Gym Leader Volkner. Battle styles and moves from Version 2 will be at your complete disposal.
To win Pokemon World Tournament, players must defeat all opponents. Sounds simple enough. Featured battle types include single, double, triple, and rotational battles. For real challenge-seekers, the Tournament mode also allows you to connect via Nintendo Wi-Fi and fight select top players and their Pokemon teams from the 2012 Pokemon Video Game World Championships. More details on how this works will be revealed later.
Pokemon Black Version 2 and White Version 2 will be out in North America on October 7. We imagine a lot of fans aren't too happy with the post-summer release.
