It looks like you’ll have to catch two more this holiday season: Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon were confirmed by Nintendo in a special 20th anniversary themed video presentation on Feb. 26.
Both games, presumably to be developed by longtime Tokyo-based franchise vets Game Freak, will ship worldwide later this year in nine languages for the Nintendo 3DS handheld. The company adds that the game will support “Pokémon Bank,” an online storage tool designed to let players move Pokémon collected from different series installments to and from the cloud.
And that’s all Nintendo shared about the games. Since the 20th anniversary tomorrow, February 27, there’s plenty of Pokémon-related stuff talk about. So this is the tease, either for another Nintendo Direct down the road, or a broader unveiling timed to the E3 games conference in June.
