Game Freak’s Junichi Masuda comments on the Pokemon 2019 Switch title

Posted on July 18, 2018 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

In this week’s issue of Famitsu, the magazine will be publishing an interview with Game Freak’s Junichi Masuda. While we don’t have our hands on the full discussion yet as the issue hasn’t gone live, some early quotes have leaked out early. We’ve translated the tidbits thus far.

First up, a general comment from Masuda on the upcoming project:

“As for the 2019 title, we’re working with the idea that everyone will be playing on their own Switch. It’ll have the same kind of feeling as the previous games on handheld systems.”

It seems Masuda was also asked if you’ll be able to transfer Pokemon from Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu / Eevee. In response, he said:

“There have been times where you couldn’t bring Pokemon over from previous titles – I imagine that created some bad memories. I want to try and change that, if I can.”

The full issue of Famitsu will be going live in the near future. We plan to translate the interview in full, so stay tuned.
