Pokémon developer Game Freak has released a new screenshot of their new IP, Town.
Developer Game Freak is celebrating thirty years since their inception. One of the ways they did this was by releasing a new screenshot of their newly announced IP Town (Working Title).
Posted in a Famitsu article, the new screenshot shows off the potential UI for Town as well as the battle system. This new IP made by the developers of Pokémon seems to also be an RPG of some sort. From the trailer (provided below), it seems to visit old RPG elements using an interesting new system. It is reminiscent of the Nintendo 3DS game Fantasy Life. Although not a 1 to 1 comparison, it does have very similar artistic and functional similarities. Taking a look at the UI, it looks like it may be a “tap command” type of game. This would make it similar in game-play style of the Pokémon series.
With E3 just around the corner, this will probably be one of the featured titles Nintendo covers during their Nintendo Direct slated for June 11th.
