Pokémon Developer Game Freak Announces TOWN for Nintendo Switch

Game Freak Town

Game Freak Town

During today's Nintendo Direct presentation, the developer revealed Town (title pending), a new role-playing adventure where you find yourself facing off against all kinds of monsters in a village.

Should College Football Change Fumble-Touchback Rule?
In December, Texas A&M lured coach Jimbo Fisher from Florida State with a 10-year, $75 million fully guaranteed contract. Of course, neither A&M nor UT have been particularly good lately, combining for 56 wins and 50 losses since 2014.

But one of the most interesting and understated announcements of the event was Town, a new RPG coming from Pokemon developer Game Freak. Such as it stands, though, Town tells the story of a village that is under siege by various monsters. Town is currently slated for release sometime in 2019 and may see a title change between now and then. On the surface, it's a pretty ordinary town, besides the fact that it keeps being attacked by huge monsters. You'll fight these monsters with the help of other villagers and discover the secrets the village holds within. The preliminary name for the game is Town which is going to be a turn-based RPG. It seems that you are the - or one of the - town protectors who is tasked with defending the village against whatever may come. They've done other games in the meantime, but none has proved anywhere near as popular as the games where you capture adorable innocent creatures and force them to do battle against each other. While we wait for more news on Town, what are your thoughts on the game?
