The release details have been revealed in regards to the online bank storage feature of the upcoming Nintendo 3DS exclusive titles, “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y.” According to a report by Inquisitr on Oct. 5, the cloud service won’t be available immediately at the launch of the video games.
Nintendo is planning to release the online bank storage feature for “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y” on Dec. 27. Players will get a free one month trial to use the application when downloading from the eShop digital store. After that period, an annual fee of $4.99 is required to continue using the cloud service.
Up to 3,000 pocket monsters can be stored on the virtual bank. By downloading the companion transporter application, players can also transfer creatures from “Pokemon Black,” “Pokemon Black Version 2,” “Pokemon White” and “Pokemon White Version 2.” This is currently the only method of transferring pocket monsters from the fifth-generation to the upcoming sixth-generation of “Pokemon” video games. No additional fee is required for using the transporter application.
“Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y” will be released next week on Oct. 12 exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS system. The two video games, both of which offer a roster of over 600 pocket monsters, are priced at $39.99 apiece. Players will have to wait two months before they can take advantage of the online bank storage feature. A set of screenshots from the titles are located in the slideshow to the left of this article.
