Pokemon Sword and Shield Art Director’s New Studio Announces The Plucky Squire

News broke Thursday morning that Pokemon Sword and Shield art director James Turner had left Game Freak to open a new studio, All Possible Futures, with The Swords of Ditto director Bidds. The news came as a shock to many who associated Turner with the design of new Pokemon going back through several past Pokemon generations. A bigger surprise was to follow, however, as Turner and All Possible Futures’ first game, The Plucky Squire, was since announced during the Devolver Direct 2022 presentation.
