So, a LOT of info was released. I'm copy-pasting it, as I'm too lazy and too tired to paraphrase right now. So here it is:
- When the player start up the games, they will be presented with seven language options - English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese and Korean. These are the languages previous games in the series have been released in.
- The game features a new communication feature which takes place on the lower screen of the Nintendo 3DS - the PSS (Player Search System), which allows players to search for others locally or globally to battle and trade. It will recognise other players playing Pokémon X or Pokémon Y and if you interact with anyone, they will become an "Acquaintance". Afterwards, you will be able to register them as a friend (limited to 100). This is integrated with your 3DS Friend List, so anyone who is registered as a friend on your friend list will automatically be registered onto the PSS.
- A new type of battle has been announced, called a "Horde" - these can be as much as 5-on-1 battles!
- Another new type of battle was introduced - "Sky Battles". Only Flying-type Pokémon (and a few exceptions, such as Pokémon with the ability Levitate) can enter these battles.
- The introduction of the new Fairy-type was done primarily to balance out the Dragon-type.
- At the moment, there are no plans for DLC but the option is being looked into. Backwards compatibility is also being worked on.
- Different areas will feature different modes of transportation, such as the roller blades, Pokémon riding and rail grinding we've seen so far. Riding Pokémon will help you traverse various terrains, such as riding a Rhyhorn across rocky areas.
- You can select music before a battle begins. (Bulbanews)
There was also another gameplay video released, which you could watch if you click this little link here.
And there was a mention of a price: about $30 USD.
So yeah. Have fun with this new info. What do you all think of X and Y so far? Feel free to post it in the comments.
Stay awesome, Pokéfans;
