Pokemon X & Y Nintendo Direct tomorrow

Video presentation hosted by Nintendo president Satoru Iwata to be held September 4 at 7 a.m. EDT.

Upcoming role-playing games Pokemon X and Pokemon Y will be the focus of a Nintendo Direct video presentation tomorrow, Nintendo announced today.

The Nintendo Direct will be hosted by president Satoru Iwata and will begin at 7 a.m. EDT / 4 a.m. PDT via the special website.

Nintendo recently revealed that the game will feature Mega Evolutions, which will require a rare mega stone.

Pokemon X and Pokemon Y launch globally on October 12 for the Nintendo 3DS. Also arriving on that date will be the all-new $130 Nintendo 2DS, which is capable of playing all 3DS games, but without the 3D visual effect.

Honestly, I feel like this game's extremely overhyped. The last Pokemon game I really enjoyed was Heart Gold/Soul Silver and those were just remakes. I didn't enjoy Black/White and Black 2/White 2 didn't look much better so I skipped it, and I plan to do the same with X/Y until this game finally proves itself to me.


I love the Pokemon universe, but these last games have just not appealed to me.

I wonder what they will have to say about it now? This might be the last nintendo direct before it is released.

Nintendo is the biggest joke in gaming. They're still holding on to antiquated crap like Mario, Zelda and Pokemon. What a joke.

What about the bananas? Now i understand, it's just facebook comments...

I'm probably going to buy this game, but my last Pokemon games was the red/blue/yellow version, so i'm kinda afraid, now i don't know nothing about the new creatures.

Pokemon X and Y are some of the only games I've been really excited about lately. Well, that and GTA V, I'm not insane y'know.

@Suaron_x It's great when you have a friend that picks up the other version and you never know what to expect when you battle.

@Suaron_x It was originally an expirement to play on the collecting aspect of it. Make two versions, two friends buy the different versions and thus involves more interactions, more longevity and ultimately more sales since each player will want a friend to have the opposite version and that means more sales through word of mouth...which seems to be Nintendo's best method of sales still. It ended up taking off with extreme success and they also discovered a lot of people would buy both versions for themselves to collect them all too...so they stuck with what works very well to this day.

@Suaron_x More money... If a company can literally copy/paste a game and just rename it to literally DOUBLE their sales, why not?

Now wait just a err actually that's true about the 3DS, it has power over Wii U.

@HonorOfGod @bannermanner Yeah, besides crystal, Diamond and pearl were the best Pokémon games. Black and white 2 aren't to bad either. Really looking forward to X & Y though, excited about the new type.

It was never a sales thing. Its so people have to trade to complete it. I've brought most Pokemon games but never brought both versions. And now thanks to wifi even if you don't have a friend that plays pokemon you don't need to buy the other version.

@EasyComeEasyGo The 3DS is amazing no doubt.
