The revelation that a new Pokemon game is coming to Nintendo’s newest handheld is no shocker (considering the franchise has been on each of the company’s handhelds in one form or another). Nintendo President Satoru Iwata revealed the new Pokemon games at the company’s recent financial results briefing. Here’s what he, very briefly, had to say about them:
“For Pokémon, we are also proceeding ahead with various projects on Wii and Nintendo 3DS. We will announce them later at the appropriate timing.”
When will the “appropriate” time be? Probably after their new slate of Pokemon games, Black and White, hit store shelves in early March. But who knows? Let’s just hope it actually is a proper Pokemon game for the 3DS and not one of the weird and endless spin-offs of the series. Catchin’ em all in 3D would be pretty awesome.
