If you're a fan of the Pokémon video game franchise, you'll be excited to hear that a new video game in the Pokémon universe is coming this year. The Pokémon Company and Nintendo announced today that Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will launch globally in October of 2013. The game will be exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS game system.

Details in the video game are light at this point. What we know is the game will have new storyline set in a spectacular 3-D world and players will be treated to dynamic battles. The games will also be the "blueprint" for an array of animation, toys, and other items that will debut around the world.

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