Pokémon Quest, a brand new Pokémon project, was announced at a conference that was live tweeted out by the official Pokémon Twitter page today.
The conference, which included attendees from both Game Freak and Nintendo, was a surprise to many despite the rumours that circulated earlier this week regarding the series.
Quest will take place in Kanto in a new location called Tumblecube Island , with the art style shifting to a more block-orientated style. Further details can be found on the official Pokémon Twitter page.
Gameplay-wise, the title is ditching the RPG elements that have become synonymous with the series, instead opting for a more action-orientated style of play. Players can build their own types of Pokémon using different assortments of blocks, with Quest lending itself to the creatively-minded.
The game will be coming out for both Switch and iOS devices, meaning Nintendo will continue with it’s current foray into the mobile market.
