Were you looking forward to playing Pokémon X and Pokémon Y in 3D? You’re going to be disappointed. The games mostly employ the Nintendo 3DS’s stereoscopic 3D effect in “certain cinematics and battle sequences,” IGN report. Most of the game, they say, is displayed in 2D.


According to Game Freak director Junichi Masuda, “We chose not to use 3D in areas where we wanted to put more focus on the game’s beauty. We also felt that using 3D sparingly would make it have more impact when it did show up.”


Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will be available October 12th.
