First direct-feed screens of Pokemon Black and White

Here's your first (clear) look at the new Pokémon Black and White for DS. While at first blush, these four screens look pretty much like Pokemon, they hint at some interesting changes for the engine. For example, the characters are different sizes in the different screens, suggesting that the camera zooms in and out. That city area looks a lot more ... polygonal, in general, as well. Still, we're hoping there's a lot more innovation involved in the actual gameplay, because spruced-up graphics are far from the "rebirth" promised with this game's initial announcement.

The battle sequence shows in-game sprites for the Zorua and Zoroark, the two evolutions of the single new Pokemon announced so far. Pokémon Black and White will be released this fall in Japan.
