Nintendo has provided the first details in regards to an optional subscription service called “Pokemon Bank” for the two upcoming Nintendo 3DS video games, “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y.” As reported by Just Push Start on Sept. 6, the new application will let players store and transfers pocket monsters using the cloud service.
The “Pokemon Bank” will give you 100 virtual boxes for storage for “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y.” As a result, you could store up to 3,000 pocket monsters using the application. Players can also take advantage of the “Poke Transfer” feature in order to import their pocket monsters from “Pokemon Black,” “Pokemon Black Version 2,” “Pokemon White” and “Pokemon White Version 2” into the new video games.
To use the service, you have to pay an annual fee of 500 yen, which is approximately $5 when converted to U.S. dollars. The “Pokemon Bank” application is going to come out in Japan on Christmas later this year. A North American launch date has not yet been announced.
Nintendo is planning to release “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y” for the Nintendo 3DS platform on Oct. 12. The “Pokemon Bank” is currently the only way to import pocket monsters from previous games into the upcoming titles.
