Just as it was announced on a Japanese TV Ad, a Pokemon announcement was delivered today, January 8. And it’s not a small announcement either: the series will continue on 3DS with two new entries, no longer named after colors.
Pokemon X and Y have been official unveiled during today’s Nintendo Direct: both games will be released on 3DS on October 2013 and North American and European Players won’t have to wait a long time after the Japanese version gets released since all three versions will be available on the same month.
Satoru Iwata showcased some of the new titles features: the game will feature a full 3D world with big grass fields, castles and dungeons. For the first time ever, Pokemon X and Y won’t have the classic top down camera views but an all new dynamic camera, making the best use of the consoles 3D capabilities. Not much more has been shown or said: the game will feature a mix of old and new Pokemons, with three new starts: the grass type Chespin, the water type Froakie and the fire type Fennekin.
From what little has been shown, it looks like the series is finally moving away more and more from its standard formula. We can expect more details in the coming days: the pocket monsters are truly back.
