Last week, a Nintendo Direct occurred and showed off Pokemon titles for both Nintendo Switch and 3DS. This confused many though, as it stated that a truly “new” Pokemon title wasn’t coming to the Switch yet. However, during Tsunekazu Ishihara of The Pokemon Company came to the Nintendo E3 Spotlight to announce that a “core RPG Pokemon title” is already in the works by developer Game Freak.
What does this mean? Well, it means that we’re well and truly getting a core title from the Pokemon franchise on Switch. He notes that the game likely won’t be out for “more than a year”, but the fact that it’s in development will make a lot of Pokemon fans happy. There’s a lot of potential of what a true Pokemon game like the handhelds can be on the Switch, so it’ll be fun to see what Game Freak makes.
