Nintendo has announced Pokemon X and Y for the Nintendo 3DS, the sixth generation of the long-running RPG series.
For the first time in the series, Nintendo will release the games simultaneously across Japan, America, and Europe in October 2013.
Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata announced the game during a Nintendo Direct presentation, showing off the game's fully 3D world and a new camera. Many of the traditional Pokemon elements were shown, such as a Pikachu hidden in some tall grass.
The game will feature a mix of Pokemon old and new, and Nintendo unveiled its trio of new starting Pokemon--watery toad Froakie, firey deer Fennekin, and grass monster Chespin. An announcement trailer was also made available.
Pokemon X and Y will be the first mainline Pokemon games made for the 3DS, although a series of spin-offs are already available on the device.
Last year, GameSpot's review of Pokemon Black 2 for the DS criticised the lack of advancement in the series, and awarded the game a 6.5.
“The stunning visuals, a completely redesigned environment, game scenario, music, and communication features will bring smiles to the faces of video game players around the world,” said GAME FREAK director Junichi Masuda in a press release.
