February 27 is known as Pokémon Day, because it marks the anniversary of the date Pokémon Red and Green were first released in Japan in 1996.
No Pokémon games in the main series are currently announced. This is the longest The Pokémon Company has gone without revealing what it’s working on since the announcement of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl and Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
It has been speculated that the next generation of Pokémon games could be announced as part of Pokémon Day. Generation 8 began with Pokémon Sword and Shield.
The second Detective Pikachu game is still in development, according to a new recruitment advertisement for its developer Creatures Inc.
As posted on Creatures Inc’s recruitment website, and translated by VGC, a programmer referred to as ‘KT’ reveals that he is “working on the sequel to Detective Pikachu, programming the drawing area, while also creating a system in the Environment Development Office that will serve as the foundation for future game production in general.”
The news will come as a relief to some Pokémon fans because information on the sequel to the 3DS original has been thin on the ground since its announcement three years ago.
