EA is taking on Pokémon

An EA funded company are planning to take on Pokémon with a new original title! (Culture, Dev, EA, If You Can)

NO!!! Go away EA!!!

Pokemon is one game that really doesn't need DLC or Online passes!

pay a dollar to catch them all
TekoIie  +   657d ago
Oh Im expecting much worse...

Their version is going to let you buy them off EA. They'll then have a time limit until they die and you have to buy another one.

When online and your... Pokemon wannabe faints you can pay 5$ to revive it.

Dont want to train your pokemon? level him up faster for the modest fee of 1$... Per level :3

Mark my words it'll happen!!!

That's the kind of thing you should expect from EA's handling of the game.

World is small isn't it. It is also going to have unnecessary tacked-on MP with Online Passes and a bunch of DLC packs.

Wow you guys behave like EA is capcom or Activision. EA has been one of the better publishers this gen then others pushing out quality titles

Put simply it's going to be worse than pokemon but that is only because it has like 11+ years of catch up to do. However, I'm surprised it has taken this long for a proper rip off, digimon was close but the game world screws itself over by having digimon de-evolve back to the first; it never really feels like it has grown up with you. But for a pokemon game that wont be just on nintendo as long as it sticks to a simple formula it cant go wrong.

Hah, good luck!

Gotta rip 'em off!

Oh I get it, EA are planing to take on Pokemon with their own new IP, the article title is a little misleading.

Well competition is a healthy thing, maybe Nintendo will decide to mix pokemon up a bit.
ApolloTheBoss  +   657d ago
Perhaps it will inspire them to change up the Pokemon anime with a timeskip and make it you know, good. One can only hope!
zerocrossing  +   657d ago
Haha, yeah maybe.

I know Pokemon can be better if Nintendo tried, but their main market is kids so its like they don't have to try so hard to be appealing.
Eremgee  +   657d ago
Well, they seem to be mixing it up a bit with Pokemon X & Y.
I'm sure Nintendo would never let a ripoff happen though. Since they've shut down a few crappy ios ones recently.
Kalowest  +   657d ago
So true, when it comes it Pokemon Nintendo sues ppl quick.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   657d ago
They have no idea what there getting into.
r21  +   657d ago
That sounds like a rip off to me. Guess I'll wait and see but based on this article, it really sounds just EA pokemon.
zerocrossing  +   657d ago
I hate EA as much as the next guy, but honestly ripping off games and genres is what keeps the industry going.

If EA can make a decent competitor to pokemon fair enough, if its just a cheap cash grab then screw them.

Frostmon, powered by Frostbite 2!
Unztayble  +   657d ago
competition is good
Kalowest  +   657d ago
Only when the "competition is good"
Unztayble  +   657d ago
Aah, touché.
yoshiroaka  +   657d ago
I'm open to it if it's a good game.

Just put it on vita and ill be happy.
Pokemon is one game I'm always jelly of 3ds owners having. I may be tempted to get a 3ds when X and Y hits.

A Pokemon competitor? It won't be very effective...
Max-Zorin  +   656d ago
No we don't need EA and their Ed Edd N Eddy shenanigans.
