Pokemon director Junichi Masuda has reiterated the company’s stance that the Pokemon: Let’s GO, Pikachu and Eevee! games are what he describes as “core” titles. Mr. Masuda also stated that other Pokemon games for the Nintendo Switch could connect to the popular Pokemon GO mobile game.
“These games aren’t spin-offs. These are core Pokemon titles. As for whether we would make other games that could connect to Pokemon GO, that will depend on how the games are received. If we hear a lot of people saying that they enjoyed being able to bring Pokemon to these games from Pokemon GO, then we’ll think about maybe having future titles also be able to connect to it.”
