Pokémon X and Y are role playing games that are specifically developed for the 3DS handheld gaming console from Nintendo. The games are developed by Game Freak and are the sixth in a long line of Pokemon games that players have been enjoying for many years. The original Pokémon X and Y games were released back in 2013 after being announced at the Nintendo Direct event that month. That same event as a few weeks ago and that is when the Pokémon X and Y sequels were mentioned.
The Nintendo Direct event was typically when Nintendo takes the time to tell consumers and media what they can expect to see from the company. A new Nintendo 3DS, for example, and any new games for it that are coming out in the next twelve months is usually what they have on tap. Since 1998, Pokemon has been releasing games like Pokemon Red and Blue, Yellow, Crystal, Fire Red, Emerald, Black and White, Black 2 and White 2 and the original Pokémon X and Y.
Most of the games would be released in the Fall months and then again in the Spring of the next year. The latest game that was released by Pokemon is called Omega Ruby And Alpha Sapphire, or ORAS for short and that game was released back in November of last year. Many fans had hoped that if a sequel for Pokémon X and Y was going to be released it would be the next in line.
If a sequel is developed and released, fans can expect it to be announced by the middle of this year. According to one online source, new games are “typically announced six or seven months after a release.” The fans that have already been anticipating the new game also think that if they are expected to wait longer, they should be getting more content as well. With so many games released over the last few years, some wonder how developers can do it.
If you have two teams, the task is not that hard as one can work on a game, while another starts the next. The Nintendo Direct event brought a bunch of announcements with it. Announcements that included the new Nintendo 3DS XL, Legend of Zelda Majora’s Mask Gameplay, upcoming Fire Emblem trailer, Puzzle & Dragon X teasers, Mario Party 10 and more. Nintendo Direct usually lasts about 30 to 50 minutes and alerts gamers and media about what can be expected in terms of hardware and software from Nintendo.
