Nintendo is in the heart of every gamer. While many have questioned them over the years they eventually turn around to wow people. This usually happens when a first party title is announced. One of the most popular Nintendo franchises is Pokemon. Through a Nintendo Direct update, the first one of 2013, Satoru Iwata (President of Nintendo) tells us we can expect Pokemon X and Y, marking the sixth generation of Pokemon in full 3D in October 2013. This announcement was made earlier today and confirms a brand new Pokemon title in the works for the Nintendo 3DS.
The Nintendo Direct update outside of making you realize how old you are, will take you make to the fond memories of Pokemon. While mostly the same experience each time, long-time fans continued to buy these games and changes while small in terms of actual gameplay, in terms of connectivity to trade and battle have evolved quite a bit. Iwata talks about the evolution from link cables, to the wireless adapter as now wireless technology. He does this while talking about the Pokemon and worlds of each Pokemon game leading up to today, so we all knew what was coming watching this, which I'd still recommend and will attach the video so you can do so.
Hey you, Pikachu! There you are toward the end of the video to tell us all about Generation VI of Pokemon. We get the usual intro to new starters, a peek at the new world, and how the new Male/Female character you control will look. What makes this release so special was a third point that was talked about. In each Pokemon release, it has taken Nintendo a significant amount of time to release Pokemon to the states after releasing in Japan. In October 2013, for the first time ever, Pokemon X and Y (Gen VI) will release in Japan, Europe, Australia and "The Americas" simultaneously.
We don't have a date as of yet but you can be rest assured that people that wondered why they bought a 3DS are now starting to realize why. Seeing any Pokemon announcement of course just leaves you excited but with more questions about the features of the game. The most important one of course being which new starter to pick (Chespin, Fennekin, or Froakie). Personally, I need to catch up and beat Pokemon Black 2. Excuse me.
