Pokemon developer Game Freak is engaged on a brand new RPG for the Nintendo Switch.
The sport is at present titled Town, however that appears to be a working title that can doubtless change through the course of the sport’s improvement. Such because it stands, although, Town tells the story of a village that’s beneath siege by varied monsters. It appears that you’re the – or one of many – city protectors who’s tasked with defending the village towards no matter might come.
The reality that each single monster on the market needs to kill you and everybody you understand is not the one means that Town differs from Pokemon. From what we collect based mostly on the very, very (very) restricted info out there about Town presently, it seems that the sport will make the most of a type of Suikoden-like celebration system. That is to say that it appears like you can recruit varied members of the city sooner or later and make the most of their distinctive talents.
Combat appears to borrow some concepts from the turn-based battles within the Pokemon collection, nevertheless it seems just like the fight on this title will provide extra choices than a restricted collection of assaults and talents. However, the few pictures of it that we have seen recommend that the sport may make the most of some type of elemental benefits and weaknesses just like what we noticed in Pokemon.
Town additionally sports activities an exquisite cel-shaded visible fashion that appears to be completely in-line with the aesthetics of newer Pokemon video games. There additionally seems to be a twinge of mythological affect in a few of the character designs, nevertheless it’s not clear presently whether or not this sport is straight drawing from any real-life mythological parts.
We actually did not see this sport coming, however Town sounds attention-grabbing even earlier than you understand that this sport is being labored on by an extremely gifted group of designers and builders. Hopefully, they reveal just a little extra concerning the title forward of its 2019 launch date.
