The last few weeks have been like a strenuous ride for Nintendo and the Pokémon franchise. With the June Pokémon Direct Stream making through and then disappearing without even a word for the fans who have waited for the best part of two decades ago, the rumors about Nintendo announcing a main Pokémon title for a console, has been proved to be debatable. Until now, with E3 2017 coming forth. Upon being there, Nintendo not only shocked the world by cramming the huge announcement, that Game Freak is developing
Until now, with E3 2017 coming forth. Upon being there, Nintendo not only shocked the world by cramming the huge announcement, that Game Freak is developing a main Pokémon game for Nintendo Switch, into a just 25 minutes presentation but also revealed the display of Metroid Prime 4 and other titles.
To say Pokémon players were so thrilled and riled up about the announcement would be such an understatement on the verge of being a lie. The boost for a core Pokémon game for Switch has already reached a high peak and in trying to maintain this momentum through a summer where no more details about the game’s development will be disclosed, America Nintendo’s president, Reggie Fils-Aime, made available sufficient information about the title to keep the fans up on their toes: “[The new Pokemon Switch title will be] a traditional find, battle, train type experience.”
Even though there was not enough information revealed about the title, it is still a pretty huge deal considering the fact that it was unbeknownst what Nintendo has meant at first about the “core” Pokémon title. While it is highly assumed that it’s about the experience Reggie has told us about, there was always the opportunity, considering Nintendo has made its image as a rather quirky industry on the back of some weird behavior, to have been addressing to something related to Pokémon Stadium.
However, now fans have something to actually look forward to the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon experience on the Switch in the nearby future. The release for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will stand as a temporary help measure, but for now any announcement Nintendo wants to make about Pokémon will be done with the information that a core console Pokémon game might guarantee a release as soon as possible.
