Continuing their Pokemon coverage, Game Informer talked to Game Freak co-founder Junichi Masuda and asked about the company creating more remakes down the line.
“”I don’t think we’re focused exclusively on making all new stuff. I think it’s important – the nostalgia factor is one thing – to give these memories, this content, another chance to shine for new players. And as a player myself I enjoy that kind of thing, as well.”
He seems open to the idea, but the real question comes down to platform. If a remake is done within the next year or so, will it come to Switch or 3DS? Given the hybrid system’s far greater power and versatility, I say Switch is perfect for a Pokemon remake.
