In the lead-up to E3, we’re counting down with our most anticipated titles. You can find out when all the press conferences are taking place in Australian/NZ times HERE.
If there’s three things in life that are certain, it is this; death, taxes, and a Pokemon game on a Nintendo handheld. Fans have been calling for it since the follow up to the 3DS’s last iteration of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, and while the fanbase is divided on what we should see next, Nintendo surprised everyone with something totally unexpected – and not exactly well received either.
WHEN WAS IT ANNOUNCED?
Unbeknownst to fans all around, extremely obvious hints were dropped on April 1st only to be ignored – and when Nintendo finally revealed what was coming, it caused a significant stir within the community. As is trademark for Nintendo as of late, the reveal came out of left field and left many fans scratching their heads. At the same time, Nintendo dropped a SECOND hint that an all-new adventure was in the works as well, and would be hitting shelves some time in 2019.
