This may be the best news Pokemon fans have heard in a while: Nintendo will release two new Pokemon games, Pokemon X and Y, in October 2013 for the Nintendo 3DS. This 6th generation of Pokemon will be the first 3D edition of the game, and it will also be the first time the game is released concurrently in Japan, the U.S. and Europe, Gamespot reports.

The Pokemon phenomenon, created by Satoshi Tajiri, began as a video game for Nintendo's Game Boy in 1996, and eventually the series spawned a television series, movies, and of course, many more video games. While past Pokemon will be present in this series, X and Y will feature new starting Pokemon in the form of Chespin, a fuzzy woodland creature, Finnekan, a deer with fire powers, and Froakie, a toad.

"We brought Pokémon into an entirely new dimension and we’re incredibly excited to bring Pokémon X and Pokémon Y to fans,” Pokemon director Junichi Masuda said in a statement, according to IGN. “The stunning visuals, a completely redesigned environment, game scenario, music, and communication features will bring smiles to the faces of video game players around the world."
