Pokemon Gen 8

As you're probably already aware by now, a Pokémon Direct is coming tomorrow. It's exciting, it's intriguing, and it'll hopefully be wonderful, but there's no way of knowing exactly what will be shown. Or is there?

Twitter user @pokexperto has discovered that the YouTube uploads already present on the site, which are currently counting down to the big show itself, contain some interesting keywords in their source data.

We've double checked this ourselves to be certain and, sure enough, the US upload features "nintendo", "play", "play nintendo", "game", "gameplay", "fun", "video game", "kids", "action", "adventure", and "rpg" hidden away as video tags. The Japanese video has fewer tags attached, but those present importantly include "switch".

So, an action-adventure RPG on Switch featuring "fun gameplay"? We were already hopeful before, but this certainly provides more evidence that the new Generation 8 Switch game(s) could well be being premiered tomorrow.

Naturally, we'll find out for sure tomorrow when the Direct airs once and for all. Make sure to join us here at Nintendo Life to watch the show live and join in with the chat. See you there!
