Nintendo just revealed the release date for the next installation in the Pokemon franchise.
In addition to the release date Nintendo also showed off new features such as a Pokemon touch element and a new Pokemon type. The Pokemon touch element of the game allows players to interact with their Pokemon via the touch screen on the 3DS. Players can even use the 3DS camera to "mime" their Pokemon's motions.
The new Pokemon type announced, Fairy, will be particularly strong against Dragon type Pokemon. No word on what its weaknesses will be but Nintendo did reveal four Fairy type Pokemon. Jigglypuff, Marill and Gardevoir are all now part of the Fairy type. Nintendo also revealed a Sylveon, a new Eevee evolution, as a Fairy type.
