New York's Pokemon Launch Takes Over Rockefeller Center

Get your Passport to Unova

UK gamers can meet the Pokémon creators next week, but they still have to wait until launch day to get the game. North American trainers eager to pick up Pokémon Black & White can grab it from 5th March — a day before its release across the territory — by heading over to the game's official launch at New York's Rockefeller Center.

As well as grabbing the game early, attendees will also be able to pick up their passport to the Unova region, the new area you'll explore in the upcoming DS games. As event attendees explore Rockefeller Center they'll come across different stations including gameplay kiosks, Pokémon artwork, a photo booth and an area to download the Liberty Pass to catch Victini. Each station will have a unique stamp for the passport, with the attendees who fill their passport receiving a free limited edition t-shirt.

If you're planning to attend the event, be sure to share your photos with us.
