[img align=left]http://www.pokecharms.com/random/junichi_masuda5.jpg[/img]Speaking in Game Informer this month, Junichi Masuda - the director of Diamond and Pearl (and unconfirmed, but expected director of HG/SS) - explains that while Pokemon is an RPG, and that has never really changed, he's quite interested in adding a lot more to that.
Masuda has previously been asked in an interview with IGN, a few months before the announcement of HG/SS, about if there were any plans to overhaul or revamp the games after 4 Generations of very similar gameplay and replied:
We already know that HG/SS have some pretty large departures from the source material from just the little information revealed so far. If Masuda has been working on these games for the best part of the past 3 years while he handed over the torch for Platinum's development - could it be that all this time has been spent on making HG/SS a serious clash of old and new?
Could Genius Sonority's long silence be indicative of their working on a new Wii title to Masuda's specifications?
Only time will tell.
