Pokémon: ‘Massive shock announcement’ next week
Pokémon director Junichi Masuda set to appear on Japanese television to make the announcement
Game Freak – the firm behind the Pokémon series – is set to make a ‘massive shock announcement’ on Japanese television next week.
The report comes from the official summary for next week’s episode of Japanese Pokémon show, Pokémon Smash.
The TV network behind the show, TV Tokyo, says in it’s list of highlights for the following week’s show that Game Freaks’s Pokémon director Junchi Masuda will be appearing on the show to reveal the ‘shock announcement’.
No other details have been revealed surrounding the announcement, however, the episode airs on September 18 – this Sunday – so there’s not long to wait.
Many are speculating the announcement will introduce a new Pokémon game – a new series based on the 3DS – however this is highly unlikely.
Nintendo are set to hold a 3DS conference on September 13 and whilst some of the scheduled announcements are already well known – such as the 3DS’s second circle pad – it will be interesting to see if there is anything Pokémon related unveiled.
