New RPG By Game Freak Called Town Is Headed To Switch In 2019

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".

Hurricane Florence: What storm surge could look like on East Coast
The gradually slowing but still life-threatening storm is moving northwest at 15 miles per hour (24 kph). The mayor of Myrtle Beach says her city has done as much as it can to prepare for Hurricane Florence.

Hurricane Florence deluges the Carolinas
By early evening, almost 70,000 residents were without electricity, according to North Carolina Emergency Management. The NHC went on to say that a few tornadoes could form in eastern and southeastern North Carolina into Friday.

Google Pixel 3 Promo Page Teases New Color
This one shows what we assume is the back of the Pixel 3 , complete with the Google "G" at the bottom center of the device. The third teaser shows an aquamarine-coloured frame, which hints at the arrival of a Green coloured Pixel 3 smartphone.

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.
