E3 2013: Nintendo reveals release date, new features, and a Fairy type for Pokemon X and Y
SpotPass and StreetPass confirmed
During Nintendo's E3 broadcast, the firm confirmed a release date for the upcoming monster-hunting RPG Pokemon X and Y.
Ninty and Game Freak will launch this 3DS title worldwide on October 12th.
The Big N also confirmed that Pokemon X and Y will feature an all-new Pokemon type: Fairy.
Fairy type critters include Jigglypuff, Gardevior, Sylveon, and Marill. And, yep, they'll be super-effective against Dragon type beasties.
Pokemon X and Y will also feature something called "Pokemon-Amie", which is a Tamagotchi-esque mini-game where you can play with, feed, and pet your Pokemon.
This will enable you to deepen your connection with your team of pocket-sized killers.
Plus, the game's eShop holding page reveals that the game will feature StreetPass and SpotPass functionality. Thanks to Serebii for that one.
