But in a new statement via Twitter, Masuda has confirmed: “On this coming Sunday, February 26, 2012, from 7:30 A.M [Japan time], I, Masuda, will be appearing on TV TOKYO’s Show, ‘Pokémon Smash! And there, I will be making a VERY important announcement, so be sure not to miss it!!”
Do you not receive TV TOKYO? Fear not, it will simultaneously appear live on his Twitter feed.
Will it finally be a new adventure Pokémon fans will be hoping for? It’s not exactly a secret the team behind the series have had a habit of over-hyping their announcements, leaving fans more and more frustrated when they all get together on live TV and announce a new Pikachu handbag is coming out for Christmas (note: may not have happened).
Fingers crossed then, for a brand new fully fledged Poké adventure. What do we reckon this could be?
