Town (Working Title) is Game Freak’s newest IP, originally revealed during the latest Nintendo Direct. Players will be able to explore it on Nintendo Switch when it becomes available in 2019.
Not too much is known outside of the Nintendo Direct reveal, which finds the main character exploring a mysterious village. The new RPG title finds players as they are introduced to a peaceful village, ruled by a king, and enjoying lasting peace. That is, until monsters begin to mysteriously appear, leaving chaos in their wake. According to the trailer, the entire story will take place within the confines of the village.
Within the village, players will need to fend off against the invading monsters. Players will be able to take up arms and choose from a variety of battle commands to take down the beasts. Other villagers can be enlisted to assist in combat as well.
The latest reveal is certainly interesting. It is a treat to see Game Freak churn something out other than Pokemon every once and a while, and the latest game appears to fit right in with their development skills. But what do you think of the title? Will you be giving it a try? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
