Treating fans to some huge news in advance of E3, The Pokémon Company has announced two new upcoming titles: Pokémon Quest, a game resembling Pokémon Rumble Blast, and Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu / Eevee, a landmark reimagining of the original Kanto region with some updated functionality and mechanics. With Let’s Go launching November 16 2018 and a mainline title on the horizon for 2019, there’s a lot of new information to pore over—so let’s go!
First off is Pokémon Quest, what looks to be a smaller scale sandbox experience, allowing players to face off in dungeon crawler combat against other Pokémon on Tumblecube Island. The Pokémon featured in the promotional material are all cube-like in appearance. Players will traverse the island with their small team of three Pokémon, establish and decorate a Base Camp, and manage skills via Power Stones. Available via the Nintendo eShop at the time of writing, via iOS and Android devices later this June, you can watch the trailer for Pokémon Quest here.
TPC also announced via Twitter that players can expect to see a mainline RPG title released sometime in the second half of 2019, meaning that they don’t consider Let’s Go to be a mainline game—good news for game hungry fans of the franchise. Check out the trailer below to see all the new goodness for yourself!
