Uh oh, looks like there's a big reason to own a 3DS now. This will be the first fully 3D Pokemon game in the series. A trailer was released together with the announcement that shows actual gameplay footage. Check out the trailer below.
The announcement was made during the latest Nintendo Direct episode that just ended. From the look of things from the trailer, the game will have a mix of old and new Pokemon, but with three new starter Pokemon.
This will also be the first time a Pokemon game will release simultaneously across Japan, America, and Europe. Pokemon X and Y is planned for an October release this year.
