The Pokémon Company is set to unveil a new project soon. Through a special stream on NicoNico, fans will be receiving news regarding an upcoming installment to the Pokémon series -- be it a new manga, game, or anime -- at 9PM EDT on next Tuesday, August 26th.
So what exactly could this new reveal be? Though the stream announcement really gives no information about the reveal other than that it will be a new addition to the Pokémon series, there are a few small little details to be highlighted. The Pokémon Company promises "a shocking announcement", which implies something major -- which makes us hope for a game. Other than that, everyone seems to be in the dark. Fan speculation has brought a few things to light, including curious trademarks made in the past by Game Freak and Nintendo.
This time last year, a strange image surfaced from the Pokémon Game Show that showed a Lucario and Blaziken locked in battle, running on what seemed to be a Nintendo Wii U. At the time, Game Freak confirmed that it was just a concept, but trademarks for Pokkén Fighters and Pokkén Tournament also snuck in in August 2013. From there, rumors began to blaze over the internet about what exactly the conceptual image might have been, and we might get our first official footage of the title on Tuesday. Of course, it's also been quite a while since we've gotten a new Pokémon Pinball title, so this could perhaps even be a remake of Pokémon Pinball Ruby/Sapphire to partner with the upcoming 3DS titles.
Considering Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire have not hit the market yet, it's probably a safe bet to assume that this will not be a main series title, but anything goes in the gaming world. Nevertheless, all that can be done until the stream begins is wait with baited breath. Details are scarce, so all guesses are just hopes and dreams for now. In the meantime, Pokémon fans can sit back and discuss more recent news, such as the inclusion of Mega Slowbro and Audino in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. After all, who doesn't want a daily dose of Pokémon knowledge?
