It’s a good time to be a fan of Pokémon right now, and next year could be even better. That’s because DeNA, the developers who teamed with Nintendo for titles like Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp and Super Mario Run, has paired up with The Pokémon Company for a new mobile game.

Coming to mobile platforms in March 2020. Color us excited!

There’s no additional information about it right now, but it’s certainly intriguing. DeNA revealed the news during its investor briefing. DeNA has a strong track record when it comes to gaming. In addition to the aforementioned Nintendo projects, it has played a part in Fire Emblem Heroes, and is currently working on bring Mario Kart to mobile.

To date, the best Pokémon game on iOS remains Pokémon GO. That game was developed by Niantic, which has continued to add regular updates since it debuted. It’s unlikely that another Pokémon game will be able to replicate the massive cultural impact that Pokémon GO enjoyed. Then again, I would never have predicted that Pokémon GO would have been a smash hit to the extent that it was.

In terms of its track record, it definitely seems that the fate of Pikachu and others are in good hands with DeNA. Now we’ve just got to wait another 10 months to get a chance to play it for ourselves…
