Pokemon RPG officially announced for Nintendo Switch, in development


Nintendo didn't offer many details, instead focusing on the gameplay. It may not release for a year, however. It looks to be a co-op platformer in line with his last few big home console games, with a mess of different powers available.

Among them are Pokkén Tournament DX, a Switch edition of the game in which players battle against each other, each with one of the two Joycon controllers, and Federation Internationale de Football Association 18, both of which arrive in September. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is slated for a release during the Holiday season this year.

We're also getting a real Pokemon game along the lines of Sun and Moon on the Switch, but it could be over a year away. Good news for anyone disappointed by the Pokken Tournament DX announcement during the recent Pokemon Direct. Nintendo also confirmed that a new Pokemon RPG game is "now in development" for the Nintendo Switch.

If you want to see the new trailer that runs for one minute and 21 seconds it lies below for your viewing pleasure and, of course, comes in by Nintendo's YouTube channel.

The Switch's first Fire Emblem game will be in the vein of Hyrule Warriors - yup, it's called Fire Emblem Warriors, and just like in the Zelda-flavored spinoff, you can play as characters from throughout the Fire Emblem series. And with each succeeding console generation, other Nintendo franchises began to follow that trend.

DLC Pack 1 "Master Trials" includes: Trial of the Sword, Master Mode, Hero's Path, Travel Medallion, Korok Mask and eight new armors.

In addition, Nintendo announced the first three Amiibo (see them above), their collectible toys-to-life figures, for Super Mario Odyssey.

The Nintendo PR team has provide a Super Mario Odyssey fact sheet following on from the gameplay featured at the E3 presentation today.

The game is described as a being "massive, globe-trotting 3D adventure" that has Mario trying to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser's wedding plans.
