Ok… So today I was one of the 150,000 people that tuned in to the Pokemon Nintendo Direct, and boy did they give us something to be excited about!!! If you haven’t viewed it already, you can see the trailer for the upcoming games here:
Pokken Tournament is a game that I loved to play on my Wii U but got very easily bored of, due to the fact that the arcade version in Japan was getting new updates and new Pokemon, but now The Pokemon Company have finally fulfilled my wishes and brought this Tekken style Pokemon fighting game to its new home console, The Nintendo Switch and given it a massive overhaul!!! Although the release date isn’t until the end of the year, you can be sure that I’ll be picking it up from my local GAME store!
This is great in itself, but I’m sure you’ll agree that the biggest and best news yet has to be the sudden reveal of Pokemon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon! With so many secrets, fans anticipated a release of a Pokemon game that followed on from Sun & Moon. What we know so far about the game is very little but there are a few assumptions we can make, however I’ll leave that for another post… Pokemon US/UM will be arriving on 3DS systems on November 17th 2017.
FINALY, if the news about Pokken Tournament & US/UM wasn’t enough, the games Pokemon Gold & Silver will be available for purchase on the shop alongsideRed, Blue & Yellow. Fans have been waiting for this for a very long time and finally we can enjoy 2 more of the classic games on a modern day system!
Nintendo have really gone to town on this Pokemon Direct, and although it was only 8 minutes long, they sure gave us enough content to keep us going until the new games release later on this year!
