Pokemon Black and White first gameplay footage revealed

Pokemon Sunday revealed a small snippet of Pokemon Black / White gameplay footage this weekend that shows the main character walking around the 3D town that we saw in an earlier screenshot.

Above: BTW, what's with that one host with the Hitler mustache at 0:38?

While only a glimpse, it does give us a better idea of how the 3D enviroments are going to work. It looks like the city is laid out in circle, and we see the character walk around the outskirts of the city, where a Pokemon Center is clearly visible. It doesn't show the character actually walking into the city though, so it's unclear whether we'll actually be able to walk between the buildings or not. It's hard to visualize how walking into the center of the city would work unless the camera perspective changes when you enter the city proper.

What do you think about the new 3D look? Sound off in the comments below!

    Interesting... I wonder if that's the "revolution" I've been hearing about. Looking forward to it when it comes out next year in the US. Hitler mustache? I barely noticed that. I was more focused on the people wearing Chimchar and Lucario costumes. I found it mildly disturbing, yet tolerable. I need to learn Japanese...

    @ CH3BURASHKA thats exactly what i was thinking. this game is for the 3ds right. i grew up playing pokemon i had all the games for the game boy color and gameboy advance but i didnt get a ds, im definetely getting a psp2 if they make one and depending on how good this game is it might make me get a 3ds. whoa my reCAPTCHA reads: hades says

    I saw this earlier today, and I was in shock of what I was seeing. Pokemon is an incredibly simple game. 2D with 3D buildings was awesome, but fully 3D is kinda pushing it for me. I know that the console games were (obviously) 3D, but the DS isn't a home console. In other word's, I hope it's better than it look's.

    @ TheSilentPenguin Having some 3D parts was good but this is 1 step closer to that fully 3D Pokemon game fans have wanted for years.
  • RedChaos765 - April 19, 2010 9:39 p.m.

    OMG that looks AWESOME!
  • TheSilentPenguin - April 19, 2010 9:39 p.m.

    Dude, this game looks freaky and I think it ruined the pokemon we all came to know and love with the overhead view and only some 3D parts which is what made it perfect :)
