Rumour: Pokémon Switch to be announced before end of May

According to one insider, there's an announcement inbound.

Nintendo insider Emily Rogers has a fairly solid track record on everything Nintendo. Now Rogers has just shared a new blog post where she reveals a few things about the upcoming Pokémon Switch, most importantly suggesting that we can look forward to a reveal of the game later this month:

"As we wait for an announcement on the upcoming Pokémon title, which will be revealed before the end of this month, think about what Pokémon Go might mean for the future of the Pokémon series. I suspect that the naming/branding for this year's Pokémon Switch title (there's two versions) might raise a few eyebrows," Rogers wrote.

This is of course far from being official and should be taken with half a cup of salt. However, Rogers is often spot on regarding these things, and we wouldn't want to bet against Nintendo revealing the next Pokémon game ahead of E3. This also fits with yesterday's tease which saw a Pokémon developer tell fans that they should buy a Switch "soon".
