At their highly anticipated E3 2017 conference, dropped a bombshell on us. Game Freak, the acclaimed developer behind Pokemon game franchise, is working on a full RPG Pokemon game for the Ninteno Switch.

Now, now, wait. Don't get too excited just yet. There's a catch.

Despite confirming that the game is in production, Nintendo teased fans by not confirming the name, the setting, or basically any information about the game, other than "it's in development" and that it doesn't have a name yet. But, they did say one useful thing, to satisfy the hunger of gamers yearning to hear more about the game. And that information is that the new Pokemon title will not be coming out until 2018 at the earliest, and will supposedly arrive in just over a year.

To some, this may seem like a very long wait, and they wouldn't be wrong. But on the bright side, this means that the game may not be your usual Pokemon experience. Could we see a bigger, more expansive open world Pokemon experience coming to the Nintendo Switch? It seems we'll just have to wait and see...

Do you think the new Pokemon game for the Switch will be a totally different Pokemon experience? Let us know in the comments below!
