Pokemon is one of the cornerstone franchises for Nintendo and it seems that a new Pokemon game might be coming to Nintendo Switch in 2018 if the latest survey from Nintendo is to be believed.
As noted by Direct Feed Games, Nintendo Europe surveyed its fans asking them what game they plan to buy in next 12 months.
The survey gave a lot of options and in addition to Bayonetta 3, one option for players to choose was Pokemon RPG for Switch. This indicates that Nintendo is planning a Pokemon RPG for Nintendo Switch.
A new Nintendo Europe survey is asking people what games they plan to buy in the next 12 months. Options include: Bayonetta 3 and Pokemon RPG for Switch. Of course, this doesn’t mean anything & isn’t confirmation of a 2018 release of either game; but it is interesting.
Another thing that is interesting is that that the survey also includes an option for Bayonetta 3 which is rumored to release in Summer 2018 and this survey gives us another hint that Nintendo is planning to release Bayonetta 3 for Switch this year.
Furthermore, the developer behind Pokemon Ultra Sun And Moon has plans for developing a Pokemon title for Nintendo Switch, as the developer has noted that Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon is the last Pokemon title for 3DS.
With Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, we’ve tried to eke that out more and really, really push the system to its absolute limits. We’re now feeling that perhaps this is the maximum of what we can get out.
Not only that the studio has noted that Ultra Sun and Moon will help with Switch Pokemon titles.
With Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon we can treat it mainly as a project for our younger staff to work on and grow and develop their skills, while perhaps the more veteran, established members of the company can work on the upcoming [Switch] project.
Do you think Nintendo will launch a Pokemon game for Nintendo Switch in 2018? Let us know in the comments.
