There is nothing hard to go on (unlike yesterday’s more solid Metroid Prime 4 developer news), but @Pixelpar does have a good track record when it comes inside Nintendo news. He recently posted a clock with the hands pointing to ‘now’ just before Nintendo’s unannounced Nintendo Mini Direct was shown, as well as tweeting Nintendo were reaching out to media to get permission to use quotes from their The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, reviews long before it was revealed the game would join the ranks of a Nintendo Selects title for North America.
Pokémon Switch was announced at last year’s E3 by Tsunekazu Ishihara – the president of the Pokémon Company. Developed by Game Freak, he says the game “may not release for more than a year”, which does actually fit the above timeline.
Doubtless, we will find out more come E3 2018.
