Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon officially announced in Pokémon Direct, out 2016
The next versions of Pokémon are now official after someone let the cat out of the bag yesterday. Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will usher in a a new generation of Pokémon and be released worldwide, in 9 languages later this year on the Nintendo 3DS.
During the Pokémon Direct there was a trailer played however there was no gameplay or screenshots to be found. Glimpses of the new games’ artwork was shown but nothing more. The trailer did evoke some nostalgia – have no doubt this is the next mainline game and not a ‘third’ Pokémon title.
The only other thing announced was the addition of Pokémon Bank support to Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow. You’ll be able to take your Gen 1 Pokémon to the latest game for the first time since… well a while.
