'Pokémon X' and 'Pokémon Y' for the Nintendo 3DS.

Nintendo's core Pokémon video game series is about to take its largest evolutionary step ever.

Nintendo's next generation of Pokémon video games, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, will launch worldwide in October for the Nintendo 3DS.  For the first time ever, these two new core Pokémon games will have not only a new storyline, but also a whole new dimension -- as in the third dimension.  Presented in a 3D world, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will also feature dynamic battles.

"We brought Pokémon into an entirely new dimension and we're incredibly excited to bring Pokémon X and Pokémon Y  to fans," said Junichi Masuda, video game director at GAME FREAK inc.  "The stunning visuals, a completely redesigned environment, game scenario, music, and communication features will bring smiles to the faces of video game players around the world."

Gamers wanting an early sneak peek at Pokémon X and Pokémon Y can do so by visiting and watching a video introducing this new Pokémon adventure, including an exciting first look at the new starter Pokémon in battle.  Fans can also catch a glimpse of the newest Legendary Pokémon and gameplay footage from the upcoming titles.

Nintendo and The Pokémon Company have stated that Pokémon X and Pokémon Y "will be the blueprint for an exciting array of new animation, Pokémon TCG, and toys debuting around the world."

These games have not yet been rated by the ESRB.
