Believe it or not, but Pokémon turned 10 years old in Japan last month, where the series first landed - and indeed sold like crazy - on February 27, 1996. To celebrate the occasion, legendary Japanese games mag Famitsu spoke with series father and Pokémon company boss Tsunekazu Ishihara.
Whilst mostly rekindling the origins and success of the monster-snatching series, Ishihara briefly touched on the future of the franchise, which should come as great interest to those eagerly anticipating Nintendo's Revolution. When asked about new gameplay opportunities made possible by Nintendo's next console, Ishihara said: "We're considering many plans for the Revolution. However, there are still areas of the Revolution itself that have not been seen, so we'd like to coordinate with Nintendo's movements."
The keen-eyed will notice that Ishihara's words suggest that even more secret features are under-wraps for Nintendo's next-gen console, which it's hinted will be receiving a small-unveiling at this week's GDC show in San Jose. CVG reporters will be on hand to bring you the latest.
Meanwhile, we think that Pokémon heading for Revolution is a very safe assumption to make. But will we finally see the long-demanded fully-fledged 3D RPG? Insert obligatory E3 note here.
