During this year’s E3, Game Freak announced that they had a Pokémon game in the works for the Nintendo Switch. GameInformer’s latest issue features Game Freak’s Junichi Masuda and Shigeru Ohmori and spoke about the game franchise, including what’s in store for Pokémon and the Switch. [Thanks, NintendoEverything.]
Masuda began, saying the following:
“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.”
Masuda also added that “playing it at home is kind of a little bit different than the portable systems we’ve made games for up until now.”
Ohmori had this to say in regards to the Switch:
“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.”
