Game Freak’s ‘Town’ Is Their Next Nintendo Switch RPG, Similar to Pokemon?

Developers of the Pokemon Games, Game Freak have just declared a new RPG title to be launched for Nintendo Switch. The preliminary name for the game is Town which is going to be a turn-based RPG. Game Freak could later change the name from Town to something else entirely as it is just a working title for the time being.

Game Freak has will release their newly announced RPG in 2019 for Nintendo Switch. The announcement was part of the reveals made at Nintendo Direct event. Nintendo took revealed the Game Freak title in style on Twitter.

Game Freak has based Town on creatures that are antagonistic in nature, therefore, serving as a threat to you as a player and your village. Do not expect these beasts to be pleasant to you in any way like the ones in Pokemon. These creatures are portrayed to be on some sort of a hate campaign against the whole village.

You as a player would be required to defend the villagers from such horrendous monsters in a turn-based role-playing game format. However, at the time of need, players will have the option to call upon fellow villagers for help. Every villager will be given a varied set of special abilities to assist the player in protecting the village and defeating the opponent creatures.

The gameplay of Town looks more like a game divided into two genres. One category is the beforementioned role-playing games genre whereas it also looks to have a mystery genre element to it where the town is hidden with concealed items or secrets that would open up as the game progresses.

Perhaps, this Game Freak title is the one we had reported on just last month when anonymous Nintendo Switch titles got leaked other than the Pokemon Let’s Go games. Perhaps, Game Freak would have planned for a sooner announcement before the Nintendo Direct event itself was postponed due to an earthquake in Japan.

Game Freak is firmly keeping themselves busy even after being in constant hype for their highly anticipated Pokemon Lets Go Pikachu and Eevee games. Just a few days back they revealed bundles for these games. The studio is certainly looking to step up their game by not resting even though Pokemon games are nearing their launch in November.

Perhaps Pokemon Let’s Pikachu and Eevee would help the fans get in the mood till Town comes out next year.
