The "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution" Premiere Celebration Project! Part 6: Mine Yoshizaki of "Sgt. Frog" fame draws "The Shocking Duo! Pikachu and Copy Pikachu"




Mine Yoshizaki draws a Pokémon picture with intense passion!!

"Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution", the full 3DCG remake of the movie that served as the ultimate starting point for the Pokémon movie series, finally premieres Friday July 12th!!

To celebrate this return of the legend itself, legendary manga artists and celebrities that love Pokémon have drawn pictures based on "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution"!

For this sixth installment, Mine Yoshizaki of "Arcade Gamer Fubuki" and "Sgt. Frog" fame joins the project!! This is Yoshizaki's first time drawing Pokémon...

This memorable first drawing is of Mewtwo, as well as Satoshi's Pikachu and the Copy Pikachu!

Artwork theme: "The Shocking Duo! Pikachu and Copy Pikachu"



This is the Copy Pikachu that was made using Satoshi's Pikachu as a base in "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution".

Yoshizaki drew a pleasant illustration of the duo with intense passion!

Even Mewtwo, who's standing in the back there, looks somewhat jealous.

We also have a special comment from Yoshizaki!!

This is the first time I draw a Pokémon picture.
All three members of our household enjoy Pokémon in their own personal way.
Thank you for always being there with us!
I'm looking forward to watching the new movie with my entire family.
-Mine Yoshizaki


Next week, we'll finish off the project by presenting a picture drawn by the singer of the movie's theme song "Kaze to issho ni"! The custodian of Pokénchi!! Shoko Nakagawa!!!

Look forward to seeing what kind of drawing we'll get!!

Movie 22 Website Updates with Report from Sachiko Kobayashi's Appearance at Adult-Only Pre-Screening

The official Pokémon movie website has updated. Translations follow:

Sachiko Kobayashi Descended to the Adult-Only Pre-Screening to Great Surprise!!




An adult-only pre-screening was held in Tokyo Monday July 8th.

Opportunities to buy tickets were available via lottery, and this time we got an incredible 10 times as many people signing up for it as there were tickets!
Some of the fans lucky enough to win could be seen crying from the point the movie started, presumably due to all the memories of their childhood that were coming at them.
It looked like especially many were holding handkerchiefs and tissues against their eyes as "Kaze to issho ni" played alongside the end credits, looking overcome by emotions.

And believe it or not, but on this day, guest voice actor and theme song performer Sachiko Kobayashi was actually watching the movie from the audience alongside the fans...!
When a surprise stage appearance by Sachiko Kobayashi was announced after the screening, she was pressing her hands against her eyes as she made her descent on the stage, saying "I was crying from the very beginning of the movie too..."!
The audience received her warmly and with thunderous applause.



When Kobayashi started singing Kaze to issho ni with the line "Aruki tsuzukete...", the audience could be heard quietly singing along as if they knew the lyrics by heart.
Sobbing voices could also be heard alongside them, the audience breaking out in tears of gratitude.

Sachiko Kobayashi's comment:
The first thing that came to mind as I watched this year's movie was how wonderful the visuals were. And just like when I watched the first movie, I couldn't stop crying when I saw the movie's bonds between Pokémon and Pokémon, and between Pokémon and humans, that depicted our world's "eternal theme": "The desire for a world without conflict".
There were people tearing up from the start of the second half all the way until the end credits...
Once again I feel how this movie, and its theme song, is filled with the memories of many many people.
Those of you who were children in 1998 grew up, became members of society and started working. I felt like your mother as I sang this song with all my heart, hoping to reach you.
When I was singing the song right now, there were people sitting right in front of me, crying... and I got worried I wouldn't be able to sing properly because I'd start crying along with them. (laughs)


"Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution" finally premieres Friday July 12th!!

Press Release - Nintendo Introduces Nintendo Switch Lite, a Device Dedicated to Handheld Game Play

A New Addition to the Nintendo Switch Family, Nintendo Switch Lite is Compact and Lightweight, Making it Easy to Take on the Go

In a video today, Nintendo introduced Nintendo Switch Lite, a device designed specifically to play Nintendo Switch games in handheld mode. The Nintendo Switch Lite system launches Sept. 20 at a suggested retail price of $199.99 and will be available in three different colors: yellow, gray and turquoise. A carrying case and screen protector set for Nintendo Switch Lite will also be available.

“Now consumers can choose the system that best suits how they like to play their favorite Nintendo Switch games.”

“Adding Nintendo Switch Lite to the lineup gives gamers more color and price point options,” said Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser. “Now consumers can choose the system that best suits how they like to play their favorite Nintendo Switch games.”

The flagship Nintendo Switch launched in March 2017 and offers three different play modes: playing in TV mode by placing the system into a Nintendo Switch dock, playing cooperatively or competitively in tabletop mode by sharing Joy-Con controllers and playing in handheld mode. The system comes with either Gray Joy-Con controllers or Neon Red and Neon Blue Joy-Con controllers.

Nintendo Switch Lite has integrated controls and is smaller than the flagship version of Nintendo Switch. It has no kickstand and, as a dedicated handheld gaming device, does not support video output to a TV. Therefore, it does not come with a dock or HDMI cable. For a full list of the differences between Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite, visit https://www.nintendo.com/switch/compare.

The new device can play all games in the robust Nintendo Switch library that support handheld mode*, although some games will have restrictions. Compatible game modes will be listed on the back of game packaging and in Nintendo eShop.

Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite owners can get together to enjoy compatible multiplayer titles like Super Mario Maker 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate together via Nintendo Switch Online** or local wireless multiplayer***.
