Pokémon Director Says To Keep An Eye On Pokémon Smash


Pokémon Black/White director, Junichi Masuda, recently attended a Q&A on February 18th, where he was asked by a fan when we would see the next game in the series after Black/White.


To this, Masuda replied that, while he couldn’t give a proper reply, fans should keep an eye on Pokémon Smash, the weekly television show that airs on Sundays in Japan.


Later, Masuda followed up on Twitter, repeating that fans should watch out for Pokémon Smash, and that if you’re unable to do so, keep an eye on his Twitter instead.


The weekend came and went, and reports that no new Pokémon game news was announced during Sunday’s episode of Pokémon Smash. Perhaps we’ll see the announcement during another upcoming episode instead?
