Game Freak Announces New Nintendo Switch Game ‘Town’

Game Freak, primarily known for creating Pokémon, will debut a new game called Town on the Nintendo Switch in 2019. Revealed during the recent Nintendo Direct, the game features life in a single town that is suddenly beset by monsters. Players must fight off the monsters and preserve the peace.

Whether or not the game itself looks interesting, it certainly leaves questions about what the next generation of Pokémon games will look like on the Switch. Town‘s lush cel-shaded graphics are certainly much more artistic than what we’ve seen of Let’s Go! Pikachu and Let’s Go! Eevee, Game Freak’s primary release for 2018.

Is this a hint of what Gen VIII might look like? Do you want it to be? Leave your comments below!
