Game Freak’s world famous Pokémon monster-collecting franchise is celebrating a milestone anniversary this week; marking twenty years since the release of Pocket Monsters Red and Pocket Monsters Green on Nintendo’s Game Boy handheld. With many fans hotly anticipating the next installment in the role-playing game “main series”, many were hoping for an announcement on “Pokémon Day” itself and it looks like The Pokémon Company are delivering, according to Japanese time zones at least.
Announced today via Twitter, a dedicated Pokémon Direct will be streamed worldwide on Friday 26th February at 3pm GMT (7am PT, midnight Japan time) and will last approximately five minutes. The only previous dedicated presentations were broadcast in January 2013 to announce Pokémon X/Y and in September 2013 just before release, so the hype train may finally be leaving the station!
What are you hoping to see announced in the Pokémon Direct?
