The official Pokémon site has confirmed that there will be an important announcement about the Pokémon series on January 8th 2013. This was already teased during a commercial but now it seems that it has been formally announced. The announcement tells people to bookmark this page in order to be prepared for the update next week.
It is worth reminding that Junichi Masuda had said that they want to further evolve the world of Pokémon this year. Could this mean that a new main series game is coming this year?
Also, let’s not forget the fact that Shigeki Morimoto, one of Game Freak’s game designers and programmers, is expected to make an appearence in this week’s Pokémon Smash! so we may end up getting an early sneak peek at the big announcement.
Pokémon.com have mentioned the upcoming announcement on their Twitter account, so we can expect international news. That’s not something usual as far as Pokémon games go, could this be the first Pokémon with a simultaneous worldwide release?
