All-new sequel with severely updated graphics

Nintendo has today announced an all-new duo of Pokemon games for the 3DS, and they've run out of colors! Pokemon X and Pokemon Y will serve as the next installment, and it will have a worldwide release in October. 

It'll boast a new story, a new "3D world," and a new bunch of collectible monsters, and naturally the merchandising is already in place. A new anime, along with cards and toys, are already in the works. 

Check out the trailer above, which showcases the starter Pokemon -- Chespin, Fennekin, and obvious favorite Froakie. Also ... it looks really pretty!
