Junichi Masuda Teases Big ‘Pokemon’ Announcement


Even after all these years, Pokemon is still huge.  Its latest big adventure game, Pokemon Black and White, are just under a year old in North America but it is pretty safe to say that we are ready for another installment.  It looks like fans may get their wish – a big Pokemon announcement is set to hit here very soon.

Junichi Masuda, Game Freak’s Game Director, confirmed on his blog that he will be on the Japanese television show “Pokemon Smash!” with some big news for Pokemon fans.  Masuda could not stress enough how “VERY” important this announce,emt will be and encouraged everyone to tune in to watch the big reveal live.  Sadly, “Pokemon Smash!” only airs in Japan, so everyone here in North America will have to wait just a few extra minutes to let the internet spread the news.

Masuda’s blog post has been translated into English:

“On this coming Sunday, Februrary 26, 2012, from 7:30 A.M, I, Masuda, will be appearing on TV TOKYO’s Show, “Pokémon Smash”! Not only that. And there… I will be making a VERY important announcement, so be sure not to miss it!! Watch it live on TV! And, for those of you who can’t watch television on live, I will announce the same information right after the show via twitter! Everyone, I hope you all enjoy the show!! Ciao!”

This may finally be the day that The Pokemon Company and Nintendo announce the long-rumored Pokemon Gray, or they may just have news regarding another unwanted spin-off like Pokemon Rumble Blast.
