The first 3DS outing for the Pokémon series will arrive on October 12th.
Handheld duo Pokémon X and Y opened Nintendo's E3 edition of Nintendo Direct, with new footages showing off the games' additional features.
Chief among these is the addition of the new Fairy type, which is strong against Dragon Pokémon.
The games will also feature a mini-game called Pokémon-amie, a Nintendogs-style pet simulator that lets players take care of their pocket monsters. 3DS owners will need to tend to their creatures, and mimic their movements to keep them happy.
