“Gotta catch ‘em all” has been a mantra of video game players for 20 years. Nintendo has sold more than 277 million Pokémon video games since the debut of Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green in 1996 for the Game Boy system in Japan.

And in celebration of that 20th anniversary, The Pokémon Company is releasing a pair of brand new Nintendo 3DS video games this fall. Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will ship just in time for Christmas.

This announcement was made today during the Pokémon Direct livestreamed presentation by Tsunekazu Ishihara, president and CEO of The Pokémon Company. Not much about the new games from developer Game Freak have been revealed, but current gamers will be able to continue adding to their virtual collections through a new share feature. Using Pokémon Bank, gamers will be able to transfer Pokémon they’ve caught in other Pokémon games into their copies of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon.

Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will be the first games in the Pokémon series to allow players to choose from nine languages to play in. In addition to English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish, players will now be able to play in both Traditional and Simplified Chinese.

Also new for gamers is Pokkén Tournament for Wii U, an arcade fighting game uses the Tekken fighting game engine, which Nintendo ships March 18.
