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.

Kotaku recently asked Zelda producer about which Nintendo franchise he’d like to work on next if given the opportunity.

We know one thing: it wouldn’t be Mario.

Aonuma told Kotaku that he’s “not any good at that type of jumping game.”

He was next suggested Pikmin. He believes that if he were to make a new entry in this series, it could turn into Zelda because he feels the two share some parallel idaes.

Here’s the full exchange between Aonuma and Kotaku:


The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds will come with a reversible cover, Nintendo has revealed. All copies in Europe will come with the special packaging.

This appears to be for Europe only. The same cover won’t be offered in North America, as far as I know!
