Pokemon X and YThe next generation of Pokemon is well under way. This morning, Nintendo and The Pokemon Company jointly announced the next title updates for its hit series of handheld RPGs. Pokemon X and Pokemon Y will both hit Nintendo's 3DS in October 2013 worldwide. Keep in mind that this is the first time for a Pokemon game to receive a simultaneous worldwide launch.

"The worldwide launch of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y this October allows players to begin their adventures at the same time," Pokémon Company CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara said in a release. "Now, Pokémon fans across the globe can discover the secrets of Pokémon games and can collect, battle, and trade with each other immediately."

Hot on the heels of Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2 on the DS, the upcoming X and Y versions put the entire world of Pokemon into 3D with battle scenes and exploration that betray the isometric perspectives of past releases. Of course, these new games also introduce a new cast of pocket monsters to capture and new lead characters.

"We brought Pokémon into an entirely new dimension and we're incredibly excited to bring Pokémon X and Pokémon Y to fans," Game Freak video game director Junichi Masuda said. "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."
