New Pokemon Spin-Off Games Unveiled By Nintendo Insider


2022 will apparently see the release of a few Pokemon derivative games. Nintendo and Game Freak are set to release later this month Pokémon Legends: Arceus, a brand new and ambitious Pokemon game for Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite and Nintendo Switch OLED. It is not clear what exactly these games are, but the source suggests Detective Pikachu may be on the menu.

The information comes from Nintendo insider and leaker Samus Hunter, who notes that the fallout will extend beyond console and mobile platforms as well. Unfortunately, this is about the breadth of the report, which is light on the salient details.

“New spin-offs are also coming to mobile and console, I don’t rule out that we may see some Detective Pikachu– related stuff “, Samus Hunter said on Twitter. “These are The Pokemon Company’s general plans as of today, in the weeks / months to come I’ll try to keep you posted. I’ll be talking about Nintendo in the next few days.”

As you can see, Samus Hunter suggests that whatever these spinoff games are, we won’t be hearing from them in the immediate future. However, the leaker believes a new Nintendo Direct is coming soon. If this is correct, there is a possibility that we will hear about these games then, but probably only if it is after the release of the above. Pokémon Legends: Arceus because Nintendo won’t want to distract Pokemon fans until the latest installment is out in the wild.

That said, take everything here with a grain of salt. This is not all completely unofficial, but while accurate it is also subject to change. At the time of publication, none of the parties involved have commented on any of this. If that changes, the story will be updated.
