Pokémon artist James Turner — art director for Pokémon Sword & Shield and designer of fan favourites such as Gigantamax Gengar, Shadow Lugia (from Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness), and Sinistea/Polteageist — has announced that he’s left Game Freak and is opening up a brand new game studio.

Turner has already proved his hand at creating games, directing the 3DS rhythm-based platformer HarmoKnight back in 2012, and now he and developer @onebitbeyond (who was behind cute action RPG The Swords of Ditto) are joining forces to form All Possible Futures. And, in Turner-style, there’s some adorable accompanying art to promote the studio, along with a tease of a game announcement.

Could we be getting a trailer for this over the next week? We’ll have to wait and see, but we’re looking forward to seeing what Turner and Onebitbeyond have come up with, and we wish them all the best with their new studio!

You can follow All Possible Futures on Twitter at @apossf. What would you like to see from the studio? Let us know down below!
