During a special Pokémon-themed Nintendo Direct broadcast earlier this month, Nintendo announced Pokémon Bank, a cloud service for Pokémon X and Y that will allow players to store up to 3,000 of their pocket monsters in online boxes. While the broadcast didn’t offer many more details beyond that, we now have an idea of when the service will be launching in various regions.

In an interview with Nintendo Life, Junichi Masuda, director of Pokémon X and Y, confirmed that Pokémon Bank will go live in Europe on December 27, two days after it launches in Japan (December 25). No mention was made of when the service will launch in North America, but it will likely be around the same time.

Players will be required to pay an annual fee to use Pokémon Bank, but Nintendo will be offering a free trial period after the service launches.
