Pokémon X & Y Coming to 3DS in October

Pokémon X and Y for the Nintendo 3DS

What a thing to wake up to!  I knew Nintendo had a Pokémon related Nintendo Direct today, but they had said it was small.  I did not expect it to be the announcement of the first proper Pokémon game for the Nintendo 3DS.  Pokémon X and Pokémon Y were revealed with some gameplay footage this morning, but we also got a release time.  The game will be out worldwide in October!  That means no waiting months after Japan gets the game, and that is a good thing.  You can watch the full Nintendo Pokémon Direct video after the jump.

Now if only they would announce the NA release date for Animal Crossing: New Leaf!
