The core series Pokemon game for Switch moves to 'late 2019'


It was previously scheduled for the 'second half' of 2019

Nintendo has posted an updated release schedule for upcoming Nintendo Switch and 3DS games. One easy-to-miss change affects the untitled "all-new core series Pokémon RPG." Originally announced for the second half of 2019, the mysterious Switch game will now release in late 2019.

I kind of just expect new Pokémon titles to release in November at this point, so in my mind, this isn't a huge shift. For instance, Let's Go, Pikachu and Let's Go, Eevee launch on November 16, 2018.

We don't know a heck of a whole lot about the core series Pokémon RPG for Switch yet, which means imaginations have had room to run wild with possibilities. It will mark a new generation, though.

Here's what The Pokémon Company CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara said about the game last month: "We want to make Pokémon fans say 'this is what I've been waiting for' by delivering a brand-new product packed with gameplay elements and plenty of new Pokémon to encounter."
