In an Iwata Asks interview, Iwata was joined by staff from GAME FREAK1 discussing the development of HarmoKnight which is available to download from Nintendo eShop.
Junichi Masuda, the Producer, said HarmoKnight is special to Game Freak because it’s the first game to come out of a “rather special environment”. He said that: “We are absolutely committed to meeting our fans’ expectations. We can’t exactly leave Pokémon to one side while we work on other games. This is why we decided to change the internal structure of the company so that we could initiate new projects while still being able to give our all on Pokémon titles.”
