Nintendo Confirms a Pokemon RPG is Coming to Switch

Pokemon Logo

Last week's Pokémon Direct left many fans dissapointed: the rumored Pokémon Stars was not shown off for the Switch. Rather, we got news of Pokken Tournament DX on Switch and Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon for 3DS. However, during their E3 direct, Nintendo silenced our fears by confirming that a main series RPG was currently in development and being built from the ground up for Switch. They also mentioned that we wouldn't see it for at least year, so a Holiday 2018 or 2019 release seem likely.

Although we know very little about what it will be, presumably a new generation of Pokémon, it's exciting to know that Pokemon games will be in development for the "home" console. Until then, we've got plenty of both Pokémon and Switch to enjoy! For more news on Nintendo's E3 presentation, check out our sister site Nintendo Castle.
