Pokémon Developer Game Freak Announces TOWN for Nintendo Switch

Game Freak has a new, non-Pokemon, game coming to Nintendo Switch in 2019, now under the working title of Town. Game Freak could later change the name from Town to something else entirely as it is just a working title for the time being.

Nintendo isn't willing to share many details regarding Town just yet but did confirm that Town will be an RPG.

"In Town, players must take up arms against invading monsters, all within the walls of a single village", said Nintendo in a very short briefing. The game is set to be a turn-based RPG which takes place in a... town.


It's unclear as to whether building up or expanding the town itself will be part of Town. However, the few shots of it that we've seen suggest that the game might utilize some kind of elemental advantages and weaknesses similar to what we saw in Pokemon.

While Game Freak has mainly become known for its Pokemon games, it does make other titles, such as Pocket Card Jockey and the overlooked Tembo the Badass Elephant.

More information on Town is likely to be shared in the month's to come, so look forward to future Nintendo Directs for updates. And now it's stretching its creative muscles again with an all-new role-playing adventure for Nintendo Switch!
