Pokemon fans have the time of their life hunting monsters all over the city when Niantic introduced Pokemon GO. Nintendo is doubling the fun when the Pokemon CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara confirmed that it will bring the popular game to Nintendo's Next System or Nintendo NX.

Ishihara confirmed in an interview with the Wall Street Journal that they will introduce Pokemon core titles to Nintendo NX. The move shows that despite the popularity of Pokemon GO, the game company which also brought Mario and Legends of Zelda is still keen on creating games for the game console company. 

Aside from the announcement, Ishihara also gave an idea to Nintendo fans what Nintendo NX will look like. Based on his statement, the next generation Nintendo device will be both a handheld one and a home console device crossover. This coincides with previous reports that the Nintendo NX console will have detachable controllers equipped with motion controls. 

"The NX is trying to change the concept of what it means to be a home console device or a hand-held device. We will make games for the NX," he said. 

Ishihara's announcement is already expected since the two companies have already a long history of collaboration. This further confirms previous news and speculations that aside from Pokemon, the game company will also bring two other popular games, Zelda and Mario.

Despite this, many are wondering if it will take quite some time for the company to bring these games based on its past performance. It can be remembered that it took two years after the Nintendo 3DS console release until Pokemon made its debut on the device. 

Nintendo is supposedly aiming to release the Nintendo NX around September or October 2017. If the Pokemon company follows the same strategy, fans will have to wait until 2020 to enjoy the games on the NX.
