Today Nintendo Company made a statement to confirm that they are working on New Pokemon games which will include second generation of the Pokemons and their names will be Moon and Sun As two different names. However the Company did not make any more statement about the gameplay of the game neither give any clues so it is somehow still a mystery. The things that leaked to the media was the logo and the names of the games which turned out that all was true. It is mentioned that both of the games will be ready for the summer season of 2016.
Today Nintendo confirmed the rumors (actual Nintendo, not “Ninlendo”), and announced that yes, the 3DS will see a second Pokémon generation, a pair of games called Sun and Moon
It was a very Nintendo thing to build up a Pokémon-themed Direct, only to have it be five minutes long, and 4.5 minutes of it spent on a retrospective about the series, with the last fraction being the Sun and Moon announcement. No big gameplay reveal followed. Just the names and logos, which were leaked yesterday, and turned out to be 100% accurate.
What I found most notable, however, was the reveal that Sun and Moon are aiming for a Holiday 2016 release. That strikes me as odd, because all conventional wisdom also points to the Nintendo NX being a Holiday 2016 release as well, and I’m wondering how that fits with a big new 3DS launch, given what we’ve supposedly heard about the system so far.
Perhaps the biggest theory about the NX is that the console is meant to be a simultaneous replacement for both the Wii U and the 3DS. The Wii U’s struggles are well-known, but now the 3DS is failing to meet sales expectations, causing Nintendo to slash their forecasts.
But if the 3DS is destined to be replaced by some part of the NX this holiday, why release one of the handheld’s biggest games in that window? The answer? I think one or many of our preconceived notions about the NX are wrong.
At a brief online event today, Nintendo unveiled the next big Pokemon games: Sun and Moon. The two releases will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS in holiday 2016, and are the first major entries in the series since Pokemon X and Y in 2013. The titles for the games actually leaked out yesterday thanks to a trademark registration in Europe.
Sun and Moon will be available at the same time worldwide, and launch in nine different languages, including traditional and simplified Chinese. “We hope that, through Pokemon, players can overcome language barriers and interact with other players from around the world,” Tsunekazu Ishihara, CEO of The Pokemon Company, said during the presentation. Aside from the names, few details about the games were revealed, though you can catch a glimpse of what looks to be concept art in the gif below. Sun and Moon will also support the Pokemon Bank cloud service so that you can transfer pokemon from previous editions of the game.
