We know that there is a Pokemon RPG in development for the Nintendo Switch, and a rumor from last month suggested that it could be released in November this year. Assuming this is true, this means that an announcement should be imminent, right? We know that Nintendo has some presentations planned for E3 2018, but the announcement could actually arrive sooner.
This is according to a blog post by well-connected insider Emily Rogers who claims that the game will be officially revealed by the end of this month. It should be noted that Rogers has a pretty excellent track record for these kinds of tips. She had previously revealed that Super Smash Bros. for the Switch would be released this year (and it will), so it stands to reason that she could be right about this as well.
In her blog post, Rogers also talks about what the game could be like, something we’re sure many gamers are wondering about. Could it be like the 3DS version of Pokemon except on the Switch? Or is it something else entirely? According to the post, it seems that the Pokemon RPG on the Switch could borrow some elements from Niantic’s Pokemon GO, which isn’t surprising given the success of the game.
In any case it’s probably best to take this report with a grain of salt for now, but if the rumors hold true then we should have our answer in the coming weeks.
