Pokemon X & Y trailer glimpses new critters

3DS adventure out worldwide on October 12

Here's a new gameplay trailer for Pokemon X & Y on 3DS, offering a look some of the game's new Pokemon.


Announced in January, the first major 3DS entry in Nintendo's blockbuster franchise will be the first in the series to receive a simultaneous worldwide launch on October 12.

The latest Poke-adventure takes players to 'Kalos', a "mysterious place that is shaped like a star". Kalos is made up of "beautiful forests, thriving cities, and many never-before-seen Pokémon," Nintendo says.

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said: "In addition to the new Pokemon and storyline featured in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, there are a number of new game elements that have been added.

"This time, the new Fairy type has been added, a change that adds an additional layer of strategy to gameplay.

"Another new feature, called Pokemon-Amie, allows you to build a deeper connection to your Pokemon by taking care of them.

You can see all those new features in a gameplay video released earlier this week.

Here's today's new trailer:
