Pokemon Direct news – What can we expect?
As we mentioned before, Pokemon Stars is almost certainly at the top of everyone’s wishlists. According to a previous report by Eurogamer, it will be an enhanced version of Pokemon Sun and Moon launching for Nintendo Switch later this year.
Once again developed by Game Freak, Pokemon Stars will mark the first time a mainline entry in the series arrives on home consoles. It’s a perfect fit for Switch, and would no doubt prove incredibly popular for its still teething library.
