New core Pokemon game coming to the Nintendo Switch

Nintendo released a similar game for the Wii U, Hyrule Warriors, featuring characters from the Zelda series.

Nintendo owns approximately a 30% stake in The Pokemon Company and roughly a 3% stake in Niantic, the creator of Pokemon Go. The game is set to release sometime in 2018.

Pokemon developer Game Freak announced that a "core Pokemon RPG" would be making its way to the Nintendo Switch in the future.

It unveiled Zelda-themed weapons and outfits for Ubisoft's "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" for the Switch. Fans commenting on the post seem terribly excited for the game, saying that it's the "Yoshi's Story 2" that they've always wanted, and that they're finally thinking of getting a Nintendo Switch.

Super Mario Odyssey's producer Yoshiaki Koizumi and director Kenta Motokura sat down with TIME for a short interview revealed a number of gameplay aspects, as well as the possibility of multiplayer. Thus, third-party developer Psyonix has announced that Rocket League will make its way to Nintendo Switch by the end of this year's holiday season. At E3 2017, the Japanese gaming firm not only announced its October 27 release date, but also showed off the unique and inventive new gameplay mechanics of "Super Mario Odyssey". Presumably a direct follow-up to the original Xenoblade Chronicles, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is sporting a brand new, stylized look that appears better suited to the Switch's hardware.

No Nintendo presentation is complete without talking about Pokemon. Xenoblade Chronicles2 will release in mid2017 for the Switch.

Nintendo has released a new trailer of Fire Emblem Warriors and the game is coming to Switch this fall. The second expansion, Champions of the Ballad, is scheduled for launch this holiday season.

In the gameplay above you can see Mario using his hat to take possession of other characters in the game.

And for the first time ever, coins are actually currency in the game and can be used to buy souvenirs from the different places Mario visits, which are sometimes necessary to access hidden areas.
