Nintendo bringing 'Pokemon X' and 'Y' to the 3DS in October

Nintendo has announced the latest additions to its incredibly popular monster battling series in the form of Pokemon X and Y. The games are slated to launch on the 3DS worldwide in October, with Nintendo president Satoru Iwata saying that players in North America, Europe, Australia, and Japan can expect to start catching 'em all "around the same time." In addition to providing players with a new generation of pokemon to collect — including the three starters, Froakie, Chespin, and Fennekin — the game also appears to have much more robust 3D visuals than its predecessors. Other than that details are slim, but you can get an early glimpse at the game in the announcement trailer below.
