From the Gamezone website:
“Speaking with NintenGen, a Nintendo employee revealed Nintendo 3DS plans for 2016, which includes a reference to ‘Niji’/’Rainbow.’ The Nintendo source noted that the name Niji is simply a code name and Nintendo code names rarely reflect on the final name for the game.”
This wouldn’t necessarily be a huge surprise as we are in the middle of the 20th anniversary of Pokemon and that it has been a couple years since we have gotten a huge, new Pokemon release. X and Y were the last original entries, and as of recent, there have been remakes of GBA classics (Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire), so it will be nice to see something new. As of right now this is nothing but rumor, but it is not out of the realm of possibility. Another question is if it will release for the NX system as it is rumored to have a handheld like feature.
What do you think? Is this inevitable because of the anniversary or is it just time for a new game regardless? Are you excited? Let us know in the comments below!
