Pokemon Quest catches one million downloads on Nintendo Switch within two days of launch

Pokemon Quest has already hit one million downloads despite launching just two days ago on the Nintendo Switch, according to Japanese news site Gamer.

The new Pokemon RPG swiftly launched upon its announcement at a press conference in Tokyo earlier this week.

The game takes place on Tumblecube Island, where everything’s a cube. Gameplay revolves around creating a team of pokemon and using touch controls to make them battle with other foes.

Players can also customise a base camp and decorate it with collectables to provide in-game benefits.

An App Store and Google Play release is set for June.

It is set to hit the shelves on November 16th 2018.
