Fans don’t have to wait much longer for the next instalment of Pokemon, as Nintendo announced Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon will be hitting the 3DS this November ­— perfect timing for the holiday season.

While little was revealed in the Nintendo Direct — a greater emphasis was placed on Pokken Tournament DX — it was announced that new Pokemon will be available in the new titles, and players will follow a new storyline occurring in the same world as Pokemon Sun and Moon.

Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are set to release Nov. 17, just one year after Pokemon Sun and Moon first hit the 3DS. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more information surrounding the new Pokemon and additional features found in the game.
