Pokémon X & Y street date intentionally broken by UK retailers, live-action launch video out

GAME and other High Street retailers in the UK have broken the Pokémon X & Y street date a day early. According to various sources contacted by MCV, GAME went so far as to send text messages out to those who pre-ordered, telling them to stop in and pick the game up. Apparently since one retailer broke the street date, the others are jumping on the bandwagon. Surely, Nintendo will be very displeased over this. Pokémon X & Y is set to release tomorrow alongside the new 2DS.

Below is a live-action launch trailer. We think it's new. Enjoy regardless.
