A new Nintendo Direct style live stream is being held today by the Pokemon Company for one of their surprise new mobile projects.
Pokemon Masters was unveiled earlier this year as a new Android and iOS game being developed by DeNa.
Both Nintendo and DeNa have already worked on several high-profile projects together, and it appears the Pokemon Company are next in line.
Revealed earlier this year, Pokemon Masters is bringing back the best Trainers from the video game series and letting fans face-off against them.
It currently has a release window set for 2019 but no actual date for when it will be available to download.
We don’t know a huge amount about the game, although we did see a short demo during the previous event.
This confirmed that fans will be able to team up with iconic Trainers to do battles on Android and iOS.
“Fun fact: Pokemon Masters began with a suggestion from Ken Sugimori of GAMEFREAK, who wanted to create a game featuring all past and present Pokémon Trainers from the video games,” a message from the Pokemon Company reads.
“Stay tuned for more on Pokémon Masters. We’ll share additional info as soon as we can!”
And that day has finally arrived, with a new live stream scheduled to kick off on YouTube on June 27.
The new Pokemon Masters Live Stream event is scheduled to begin at around 2pm in the UK.
There is no set time for how long it will last or what news will be shared during it by the Pokemon Company.
But it seems like it will be the perfect event to share the final release date for the Pokemon Masters project.
Here’s the latest that has been shared about the project by the Pokemon Company: “A new Pokémon mobile game called Pokémon Masters is on the way for iOS and Android devices from The Pokémon Company and DeNA.
“Pokémon Masters lets players experience a new type of Pokémon battling on the go, and it features many famous Pokémon Trainers from the long history of Pokémon video games.
“Gameplay has been optimized for smart devices, allowing anyone to casually pick it up and play.
“Pokémon Masters is scheduled to launch in 2019. Fans can expect more details about this new mobile game in June!”
