Pokemon Sun and Moon could be headed to the Nintendo Switch

A previous report claiming the Nintendo Switch will have a Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and Pokemon game within six months of its release appear to be holding true as a new report claims we could be seeing a new version of both Pokemon Sun and Moon on the upcoming console.

The report cites multiple sources who claim the Switch version of Pokemon Sun and Moon are already well into development and is expected to launch in 2017. As of now, the title is codenamed Pokemon Stars and may be the third title launched within the same game world, but with expanded features.

If the report holds water, this would mark the first time a mainline Pokemon series made its way to separate Nintendo consoles within the same video game generation. This could also boost sales for the Switch as we can’t imagine fans of the series not wanting to get their hands on a console version of the handheld game.
