Junichi Masuda Discusses The Future For Pokémon On Nintendo Switch

The Pokémon franchise will eventually be making its way to the Nintendo Switch which is very exciting prospect. US publication Game Informer recently caught up with Junichi Masuda to talk about the franchise making its way onto the new platform and Masuda shared some of his ideas and thoughts about Pokémon on Nintendo Switch.

“What I’m really curious about, and really excited to see, will be the main way that people play the Switch, Masuda explained to Game Informer, in their September issue.

“Will it be home for the most part? Will it be out and about? I think that is really going to depend on where the person lives, maybe. Depending on the country, maybe the main style of playing will be different. As we’ve been saying a lot, we always focus on, when designing the games, thinking about how the player is going to play the game – how they’re going to enjoy it, and what kind of experiences they are going to have. I’m really just kind of excited to see where the main style of playing is going to land.”

“Of course, it is very difficult to make the game, so I hope people don’t get their expectations up too high,” Masuda admitted. “We’ll do our best.”

    Maybe if you hadn’t stuck with 2D for the last 10 years & actually worked on the 3D games on home consoles during that time instead of passing the work off to someone else & thus not gaining any experience from working on those games, maybe the prospect of working on a Pokemon game for a home console might not be such a difficult task. As some people like to say: git gud!
