Game Freak announcedTown (working title) for the Nintendo Switch today.

This afternoon's Nintendo Direct held many surprise announcements, including both Luigi's Mansion 3 and a new Animal Crossing game for Nintendo Switch. Game Freak debuted a work-in-progress trailer to showcase what to expect, swapping out its impressionable pocket monsters for mean brutes that seem to carry a grudge against the player and their "village".

The reference to "three extra shekels " drew criticism from people who believed it had anti-Semitic undertones. The book has dominated political headlines since reports about it emerged last week.

Media outlets were not allowed in to view - or roll video while - the president signed the order. If that judgement is affirmative, the penalties would go in place immediately.

The advantage of 3D printing lies in the complete freedom of designing components that could not be produced in other ways. Recently, BMW Motorrad released footage of its self-driving R1200GS bike which is moving on a test track.

Fight against attacking monsters and restore peace to a small village in Town. From what we gather based on the very, very (very) limited information available about Town at this time, it appears that the game will utilize a kind of Suikoden-like party system. Game Freak would then go outside of Nintendo's publishing, working with Sega to release Tembo the Badass Elephant and self-publishing Giga Wrecker on PC. This became the developer's first game to release on PC before achieving self-publishing status with Giga Wrecker past year.

The game is now titled Town, but that seems to be a working title that will likely change during the course of the game's development. It's set to release sometime in 2019 with a more elaborate title. But it's certainly quality over quantity, so we're best waiting to see what Game Freak has in store.
