Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee was advertised just before E3; where we then saw a short trailer in conjunction with the Nintendo E3-presentation. But although it is gratifying that there will be a new game in the series for the Switch, there have been some criticisms that the game is integrated with Pokémon Go and that it is also a little simpler than we are used to from the series. Now, developer Game Freak has commented on this and asks for the fans’ confidence going forward.
The Pokémon Boss opens up
It is Pokémon Company boss Tsunekashu Ishihara who had the following to say to big Japanese Games magazine Famitsu:
Among those who have tried the game, some may feel that it has changed. However, we have been continuously changing the formula of the games since our inception, and in the end the players have accepted those changes.
In that sense, this time we are doing the same, but that is part of the long tradition of Game Freak and the Pokémon series. We will not go wrong with the basics, so please, trust us.
Watch the 45 min Treehouse broadcast
Even though the big presentations are done for this time, E3 continues to live on through the fair itself. On-site, Nintendo has its Treehouse broadcasts where they immerse themselves in selected titles released on their machines. If you are curious about the next Pokémon incarnation, Pokémon: Let’s Go, you should aim your eyes at the clip down below as it offers 48 minute gameplay and developer-talk.
What do you think?
Do you trust them, or are you looking forward to next year’s Pokémon instead; which is said to be the TRUE sequel for the fans?
