A surprise announcement came during today's Nintendo Direct where Game Freak, world-renowned for their development of the main series Pokémon titles, revealed Town, a new RPG coming to Nintendo Switch in 2019.

Video game stories from other sites on the web.

Little else was really said about the game, except that it's out in 2019.

This brand new RPG will place players int the shoes of an ordinary villager.

From the footage shown, a character named Nez - or Nezu - appears to have the ability to use ideas and concepts (depicted as a light bulb) in combat.

Game Freak is also working on Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, which are set to be released on the Nintendo Switch on November 16, 2018.

Game Freak already has a handful of titles away from Nintendo, continuing a relationship with Sega that began in 1992 with Magical Tarurūto-kun and more recently saw the developer create a 2015 side-scroller starring mascot Tembo the Badass Elephant. We'll find out when it releases on the Nintendo Switch sometime next year. They've done other games in the meantime, but none has proved anywhere near as popular as the games where you capture adorable innocent creatures and force them to do battle against each other. Players will be able to enlist other townspeople to help in hard battles.
