Pokemon X/Y coming October 12

Pokemon X/Y has been given an official release date and will arrive on 3DS on October 12.


Nintendo Direct debuted with a look at the upcoming Pokemon X and Y. The first official 3DS entry in the Pokemon series has been given an official release date of October 12.

The footage showed Fairy-type Pokemon in action, formally adding a new Pokemon type to the series for the first time since Gold/Silver. X & Y are also set to add a new feature called Pokemon-Aime, which allows you to virtually play with your Pokemon, the way you would a pet.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
