After stretching the lifespan of its previous-generation handheld with last fall's release of PokÃ©mon Black Version 2 and White Version 2, Nintendo will finally push the beloved "Collect 'Em All" series ahead with this October's release of PokÃ©mon X and PokÃ©mon Y for the Nintendo 3DS.
Nintendo revealed the complementary titles overnight in a streaming web presentation, wherein the first trailer and information were divulged. PokÃ©mon X and PokÃ©mon Y will be the first core entries in the long-running franchise to feature 3D visuals, which have a cartoonish cel-shaded look to them, and will expectedly include brand new PokÃ©mon species. Newcomers Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie were shown as the starter monsters, though old standby Pikachu also made an appearance in the video.
It's a welcome step forward for a series that has been famously slow to evolve from its original framework, though it seems fair to say that the games will still revolve around traveling from town to town, collecting and battling PokÃ©mon along the way. Nintendo says the games will be released worldwide around the same time to allow for online interactions for all, with a target release time of October 2013.
