During E3 2017, Game Freak revealed that they are making a new Pokemon game for the Nintendo Switch. Now, two of the company’s top honchos, Junichi Masuda and Shigeru Ohmori, talked about this new Pokemon game for the Switch in a new interview with Game Informer.
In the interview, Masuda said:
“What I’m really curious about, and really excited to see, will be the main way that people play the Switch. Will it be a home for the most part? Will it be out and about? I think that’s really going to depend on where the person lives, maybe. Depending on the country, maybe the main style of playing will be different. As we’ve been saying a lot, we always focus on, when designing the games, thinking about how the player is going to enjoy it, and what kind of experiences they are going to have. I’m really just kind of excited to see where the main style of playing is going to land.”
He then added:
“playing it at home is kind of a little bit different than the portable systems we’ve made games for up until now.”
As for Ohmori, he said:
“It definitely is really fun to see that, but at the same time, it is definitely a lot of pressure, so we’re going to do our best to create a great game that answers those expectations.”
Making a Pokemon game for a different platform from the usual would be quite tough, and the pressure is huge. Until then, we just have to be patient about when they will reveal more details.
