A new Pokemon project will be announced live on a NicoNico stream next Tuesday, August 26. According to translations from Serebii, the stream will provide a “shocking announcement”, but unfortunately there are no real clues as to whether eager Pokemon fans are looking at a game, manga, or new film.
The NicoNico stream – which is running in co-ordination with Famitsu magazine – will feature CEO and president of the Pokemon Company Tsunekazu Ishihara, along with two special guests and Pokemon voice actors Nobuhiko Okamoto and Aoi Yuuki. The announcement stream will be hosted by fashion model Ayana Tsubaki and Famitsu’s Bunbun Maru.
Though the announcement is unlikely to be a main series game, speculation among fans have pointed towards the rumoured Wii U title, Pokken Fighters. Trademarks were filed in Europe for both Pokken Fighters and Pokken Tournament back in May, so there’s certainly prior evidence pointing in its direction.
