Short and quick update here: The Official Black and White website has just updated. The update literally consists of a wheel of screenshots. The screenshots that are posted there are the same ones that we saw in CoroCoro a few days ago. Of course the quality has improved and so we are sharing them here.
The following sprites are unofficial. Please note also that I am not a pixel artist, so the quality of these is probably pretty bad but it was fun to do regardless.
So, what do you think? As these are the same locations as before, there isn't a large amount of stuff to comment on like last time. However, these higher quality screens have presented a couple of things. First of all, there appears to be a shadow of a reasonably large building behind the house with the green sign/mailbox that the male protagonist is standing in front of. Our guess is that's the Professor's house, if there is one. The large city looks a lot nicer presented the way it was meant to be, and even appears to be surrounded by water! Lastly, the most noticeable thing about the screens is the vehicle/object located on the bridge. As CoroCoro had a note previously next to that screen revealing that a new method of transportation would be available in these games. Knowing this, it isn't illogical to believe that orange machine might very well be it- whatever it may be. What do you think it is? Let us know by discussing it with us! And lastly, you can enjoy the video. Fans of Skotein's work should be pleased with the beginning of this video.
