Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will be out later this year on Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo announced today. They’ll launch on Nov. 17 worldwide.

The game is heavily based on Pokémon Sun and Moon, last year’s pair of Pokémon role-playing games for Nintendo 3DS. Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will further expand on the world and story of those entries, returning players to the Alola region. The game will also feature Pokémon not included in the original titles, which launched last year, according to director Junichi Masuda.

Expect more information on these titles later this year, Masuda said.

Watch the tail-end of the trailer below for a brief peak at Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. In the teaser, there’s Pikachu abound, new players characters, and some mysterious new forms of the legendary Pokémon Solgaleo and Lunala. Expect further appearances from them and other rare Pokémon, like Necrozma, throughout the game.
