Pokemon Quest for the Nintendo Switch was just announced at The Pokémon 2018 Video Game Press Conference.
According to Pokemon’s official Twitter account, Pokemon Quest is a “free-to-start” game that allows trainers to “face off against wild Pokémon and embark on many exciting expeditions.”
Pokemon Quest takes place on Tumblecube Island, which you can explore while battling wild Pokemon, gathering treasure and befriending new Pokemon with a team of up to three. You’ll have special items called Power Stones to strengthen your team, and you’ll get to decide which characteristics your Pokemon will have.
Notably, the Pokemon in Pokemon Quest have a boxy, cube-like appearance.
Look out for more details on Pokemon Quest and more news from the Pokemon 2018 Video Game Press Conference coming shortly.
