A brand new Pokémon mobile game is now in the works thanks to a partnership between The Pokémon Company and DeNA.

DeNA, the Japanese company which partnered with Nintendo to release Miitomo, Super Mario Run, Fire Emblem Heroes, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, and the upcoming Mario Kart Tour, has announced this new collaboration project in an end of fiscal year briefing today.

Described as a "new and exciting smartphone game", the product will be released this fiscal year (so by March 2020) and will be based on the Pokémon franchise.

As you can see in the image captured above, more details - including its release date - will be released at a later time.

Could this be something which ties into Pokémon Sword and Shield? Will it be free-to-play, or a paid experience? So many questions! Hopefully we'll find out soon enough.

Until then, why not let us know what you hope the game might be in the comments below?
