Pokemon X and Y was announced at a Nintendo Direct by Nintendo.
It will be released for the 3DS and is developed by Game Freak. It’s an RPG series and one of the most popular ones available today.
The game is said to bring in new features and change the formula a bit. The game is the first installment in the sixth generation of Pokemon games and so far has only been confirmed for the 3DS. It is scheduled to be released in October 2013.
The game includes new starter types like Chespin, Fennekin, Froakie, and Xerneas.
“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.” [reference]
“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.”

“This game has been a long time coming,” Smith told Polygon. “Obviously, Game Freak wanted to make sure that when they created this new universe on the 3DS, that it looked fantastic; both in the polygonal style and also when people are able to see the 3D effects as well. It’s really exciting to see the Pokemon come to life a little more.”
“There’s always been an evolution of the look and feel; it just happens to be that we played Black and White, and Heart Gold and Soul Silver, and Diamond and Pearl, and Platinum — all of those games on the same platform. So it feels like it’s been a long time in the same way,” Smith went on. “But between the original Game Boy and Game Boy Color, and moving up into the DS now, it’s always had that change. There’s never been a conscious decision to reboot, it’s just a decision to try new things and express the world in a new way.”
