Town’ is a New Game from Pokémon Dev GameFreak

This afternoon's Nintendo Direct held many surprise announcements, including both Luigi's Mansion 3 and a new Animal Crossing game for Nintendo Switch. The game is set to be a turn-based RPG which takes place in a... town.

Here's the official description of the game, straight from Nintendo: "Game Freak, the developer of the Pokemon series, has created a new RPG for Nintendo Switch".

VW to stop production of the Beetle in 2019
Earlier this year it was confirmed there was no immediate successor lined up for the current generation of the Volkswagen Beetle . Volkswagen will stop making its iconic Beetle after almost seven decades on the market, the German automaker announced Thursday.

Super Typhoon Forecast to Hit Philippines Saturday
Mangkhut is already the storm of 2018, and is now packing sustained winds of 165 km, with gusts up to 205 km per hour. Bojie Dy reports more than 5,000 people have been evacuated from coastal areas in Isabela province.

Booming sales for Woodward's 'Fear,' Trump presidency book
Some former White House officials who spoke with Woodward have tried to distance themselves from the book. In 2004, Bill Clinton's memoir "My Life" sold more than 1 million copies within eight days.

Proceeding the trailer, a description is shown for the game which reads: "a new story in a village with a secret to hide". At first glance, the visual aesthetic of Town feels reminiscent of other JRPG games, including the latest Pokemon titles from Game Freak. Certain situations will even allow you to summon other villagers to help work together to stop the monsters. Game Freak could later change the name from Town to something else entirely as it is just a working title for the time being. Game Freak would then go outside of Nintendo's publishing, working with Sega to release Tembo the Badass Elephant and self-publishing Giga Wrecker on PC. It seems that you are the - or one of the - town protectors who is tasked with defending the village against whatever may come. But it's certainly quality over quantity, so we're best waiting to see what Game Freak has in store.

TOWN is scheduled to be released for the Nintendo Switch in 2019.
