We’ve previously heard rumblings of a new Pokemon game in development starring Pikachu. Today, the speculation has apparently come to fruition.

Tsunekazu Ishihara will be appearing on an NHK program next week as part of a profile on Pokemon Company, where the new title will make its debut. A preview of the episode gives the first glimpses of the project. It seems to confirm 3DS as the game’s platform and shows a very brief snippet of Pikachu in action.

What’s included in the video almost looks like an AR experience. There’s also a couple of moments showing Pikachu mimicking a woman’s facial gestures.

A synopsis of the upcoming episode indicates that the footage is from a brand new title with development having started this summer. This new game is said to be changing Pikachu in some unknown fashion. Based on the synopsis, Ishihara apparently has a few concerns as to how this will affect the Pokemon’s popularity.

Remember, a lot of this is still unclear. Until NHK’s episode airs next week, we won’t know what exactly will be shown.

    Just 3DS. Now that X and Y are out, why do they make again a Pokémon for 3DS? Man ..

    I was extremely hoping for a Pokemon adventure on the Wii U a-la Super Mario Galaxy… Not only would it out more strong focus on Nintendo’s yellow mascot but also bring ing the pokemon world to life on the Wii U!!! I really hope this is not what they will announce 🙁
