Game Freak’s New IP Town Coming to Nintendo Switch in 2019


A game that essentially takes place in just one village may seem small in scope, but odds are that village is packed with secrets and surprises to find throughout your journey.

Here's the official description of the game, straight from Nintendo: "Game Freak, the developer of the Pokemon series, has created a new RPG for Nintendo Switch". Perhaps just exploring and meeting the town's inhabitants are all that's involved, but knowing Game Freak there's likely more to Town's gameplay than is immediately apparent. The player will be able to enlist the aide of villagers to fight against the invaders. It's unclear whether or not this is a special ability you need to unlock, as Nez is also shown to have a standard selection of abilities including "Elude" and "Heavy Punch". What do you think of Towns? Game Freak would then go outside of Nintendo's publishing, working with Sega to release Tembo the Badass Elephant and self-publishing Giga Wrecker on PC.
