We have two teaser images.  Anyone want to guess what these two are up to?  The unveiling happens on March 11th.

Probably will be a small-scale eShop title, possibly even an iOS title, but I'll definitely keep an eye on it. Their other side projects (like Drill Dozer and HarmoKinght) over the years have all been pretty great from what I've heard.

Edit: One possibility that would be pretty crazy is if this were to wind up being a Pulseman revival, though I really don't think that game had anything to do with elephants. :P

I wish it'd be something deep, but going by my judging (prejudice?) of the "two teaser images..."

...this looks like a shallow, light-hearted affair. I never got Harmoknight, but from the demo, I gathered that it was a "Diet EBA."

First of all, how did you manage to fuck up that é with the é in a new post?

 

Also, it has to be.

 

...and this isn't coming out on Nintendo's platform? IT HAS A BAD WURD IN THE TITLE! NOT KIDDY ENUF!!!1

Seriously, how the fuck does a game made by the people who make pokemon NOT get released on a Nintendo platform?! And don't give me crap about Pulseman being a Genesis game, cuz that was long before they even partnered up with The Big N.

According to Wikipedia, Game Freak is a privately owned company so there's nothing preventing it from making games with other publishers. I did not know that and I learned something today.

Plant, I just copied it from IGN, dunno how they did that.

Also, wtf!? I didn't read much into it, I just assumed mobile and Nintendo do consoles. Here it's the exact opposite? Wtf.

Likely just a difference in character encoding between CS and IGN then.

Anyway, yeah, I knew GameFreak was wholly independent, but I am surprised they're skipping Nintendo altogether. I kind of doubt the real reason was "eh, it just worked out that way" as they said in the interview. Odds are they either specifically and deliberately wanted to try out a project on competing hardware, or Nintendo was uncomfortable launching a game from the creators of Pokémon that's so very not Pokémon.
