The gaming world has been set ablaze by Pokémon rumors this week, and they’re starting to look more and more likely. According to multiple sources, Game Freak is returning to Kanto for two games on Switch: Pokémon Let’s GO! Pikachu and Pokémon Let’s Go! Eevee. The twin games are said to be planned to launch in 2018, and a reveal could come as soon as this month.
Things just got even more interesting today, as we’ve learned that both of those titles have just been registered as domain names. The registration was handled by CSC Corporate Domains, Inc, which is the same company that Nintendo and Game Freak have used to register for previous games, like
Sun and Moon. CSC typically only deals with corporations protecting their IP, so it seems unlikely that these domains are being claimed by squatters. Nintendo’s name hasn’t yet appeared attached to the domains, but this appears to be legitimate.
If history is any indication, a reveal could be just around the corner. CSC registered
Sun and Moon domains on February 25th, 2016, and the twin games were revealed the very next day. We haven’t heard any official news from Nintendo regarding an upcoming Direct event, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that changes soon.
