I think in a way. Black and white had this big risk of putting out a new Pokemon game with every single Pokemon is new to the series (if I'm correct, haven't played it) I never got interested enough to buy it yet...

This isnt no damn risk! In the bottom of all this is the same formula that makes all these kids and teens buy this game and they will buy it again. The same repetitive and mudane battle system.

this game series is pretty much the madden of this genre

specsmatter1871d ago

Im sure all those ppl that buy it dont disagree (although ive played Pokemon and its just too boring and repetitive to me).

And i know those kids love Pokemon

Nexgensensation1871d ago

its def. one of those games you keep in the closet.

admiralvic1871d ago

I really hate this paradox that people impose on some long standing series.

While Pokemon sticks to a formula that works and is fun, some people want to change that. However when games actually change the formula / go in another direction, people complain about how they wanted it like before. Biohazard, Ninja Gaiden, FF all changed up the formula and people were angry every time... Why can't we just be happy this one is on the 3DS and move on?

No one asked for FF to change...

With that said for me personally Pokemon has gotten too repetitive. It's not that the current formula is bad or doesn't work, it's that I get that been there done that feeling with each new Pokemon game.

This new one is going the 3D world route which I wanted, but the battle system is the same which is the core gameplay that you'll be doing over and over like you have been doing in previous Pokemon games.

Yeah, when I saw the trailer for X and Y, I thought, "that's nice, but not enough".

It's fun though. Why change fun. Fun can be fun forever it doesn't only have to be fun for a few years. Fun is fun.

A risk would have been a Wii U version MMO style in 1080p. At LEAST it isn't the same look Nintendo has been using over and over again.

specsmatter1871d ago

I agree. But even that wouldnt be that much of a risk because i know so many ppl are dying to get their hands on a version on the Wiiu that offers robust online capabilities and true 3d graphics.

We all know a 3d Pokemon on the Wiiu would be a system seller to all those kids craving their Pokemon Wiiu fix.

Give me a Wii U version....and take some ACTUAL risks to lure in new core fans then I may be impressed...releasing a handheld Pokemon equates to zero risk

MasterCornholio1871d ago

I wouldnt call it a risk its essentially the same pokemon games that Nintendo has always made except that its in 3D.


Great idea and im pretty sure that some day Nintendo will do that on the Wii U.

How is putting a hugely popular game on a successful handheld considered a risk? What they should've done is put it on the Wii U also to attract new buyers.
