Ever since Pokémon arrived on the scene over two decades ago, fans have been clamoring for a core Pokémon RPG on consoles. From the N64 to the Nintendo Switch, Pokémon has graced numerous mainline Nintendo consoles in the form of Spin-offs and the occasional cameo but never has a full-on core RPG title came to a console. We’ve seen Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Snap, Tekken Spin-offs and Smash Brothers but never an RPG in the vein of Red and Blue.
Today Nintendo stoked the fires of hope as a decade long dream came true. A main core Pokémon RPG has been announced for Nintendo Switch and is slated to be released in the distant future. While the details are bare, this could very well be the highly rumored Pokémon Stars or a newer, graphically relevant, Pokémon game. Sadly it will be over a year before the game is released and details will probably remain close to Nintendo’s chest until development progresses.
Regardless of what the new Pokémon game will look like, the future is bright for us fans. We may very well see the most beautiful, advanced, and epic Pokémon game yet come to Nintendo Switch quite soon! Click below to watch the short presentation and read more about this exciting announcement!
