Nintendo will finally reveal more info on this year's big Pokemon game for its handheld-console hybrid.
Not much is known about the Switch's upcoming Pokemon RPG, but Nintendo plans to show off new tidbits during a special Pokemon Direct tomorrow at 9AM EST. The video presentation will last around 7 minutes, and we could get a closer look at starter Pokemon and unique Switch-exclusive features (and maybe some Pokemon GO integration too).
So what do we know about the game? We know it's a mainline RPG that will deliver a "traditional find, battle, train type experience," and it's slated for a late 2019 release (likely during Nintendo's critical Q3 holiday quarter). The game could also have specially-modified JoyCon attachable controllers or wireless Pokeball devices for more interactive play, and these peripherals may be used with the Switch and smartphones too.
The new Pokemon Direct will kick off tomorrow, February 27, 2019 at 9AM EST / 6AM PST.
