Here is a brief glimpse of the new Pikachu game in development courtesy of NHK. This episode of The Professional will be broadcasted in Japan on October 28.
In the clip, you can see Ishihara saying that filming isn't allowed—and then, the announcer says, "This is the first time cameras have gotten in." You can see the Pokémon Company staffers work on its "super secret game," which stars Pikachu and looks to be a 3DS title.
According to a blurb from Pokémon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara's upcoming television appearance on Japanese TV show NHK Professional: Shigoto no Ryuugi, there is a Pokémon game with Pikachu in development.
"This summer, Ishihara started development on a never before seen game," the description reads. "It's a new game featuring the very popular character Pikachu in a bold way. There is concern, however, that if it's bad the long loved character would lose popularity in the blink of an eye."
Could Pikachu ever really lose its popularity?
