In a press event held in Tokyo, Nintendo revealed that three new Pokémon games will be released this year! The first game is already available for download on the Nintendo Switch.
Pokémon Quest is free to play and is reportedly coming to iOS next month. According to Polygon, it is a Pokémon game like no other:
“The action game takes place in a world called Tumblecube Island, where voxel-style Pokémon roam for treasure, food and friendly fights. There are base camps that players can customize and build, which help them attract new Pokémon to add to their team. From there, trainers take a set of three monsters to battle, albeit not using the familiar turn-based combat of other Pokémon RPGs. Instead, Pokémon Quest limits players’ control of their Pokémon to tapping attack meters once they’re full. Otherwise, the Pokémon go at it on their own.
Think of it as Minecraft meets the simplistic Pokémon spinoff Pokémon Rumble”
Users do not, however, have full control over their Pokémon during battles, which is already causing some outrage from Pokémon fans.
Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! and
Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!
Pokémon Quest is just one of three new games being released this year. Pokémon: Let’s Go integrates with Pokémon GO on iPhone, allows for two players and they will be available on the Switch on November 16.
“Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! bring the experience of a classic Pokémon RPG to Nintendo Switch with gameplay that is easily approachable for newcomers to the series, but is also deep enough to keep veteran Trainers on their toes.”
