Pokemon nation where you at? Got some news for you. Pokemon Ultra Sun & Moon will be the LAST main Pokemon game to appear on the Nintendo 3DS. Make sense. The 3DS has been out for almost seven years and GameFreak feels its time to take a break. They feel like they’ve done all they can with the aging platform.
“When we were making Pokemon X and Y, we really were trying to push the 3DS system to its absolute limits – which is what we thought we’d done. But when Sun and Moon came around, we completely redesigned the system, and actually ended up pushing the 3DS even further to what we thought was the most we could draw out of it.
With Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon we’ve tried to eke that out more and really, really push the system to its absolute limits, and we’re now feeling that perhaps this is the maximum of what we can get out. So we’re really treating Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon as the culmination of our work with the 3DS system.”
I’ve some people take to Twitter to start the speculation train. Some think these limitations could lead to a main Pokemon game landing on the new Nintendo Switch. It is a handheld hybrid console after all. Should be interesting to see how this plays out. I’ll be crossing my fingers for that Pokemon MOBA.
