Why We Will Never See A True Pokemon MMORPG On The Wii U

Blaine Smith of MMOAttack writes:

It's the dream of millions, the gold prize at the end of the rainbow, a truly 3D Pokemon MMORPG. As with most dreams the potential for it to become true is unlikely but that doesn't stop the heavy debates on forum boards across the internet. So today I thought I'd give you my opinion on the matter, as you obviously care what my thoughts are right? (Pokemon, Wii U)

I won't trust Nintendo to pull off a pokemon MMO and meet the fans high expectations.

Japanese MMO are very few and inferior to western MMO. Unless they collaborate with another experienced western studio.

It's a gold mine and i'm confused as to why we haven't seen a fully 3D Wii U game never mind an MMO. such a waste imo.

Dragon Quest X is Wii U right? That's 3D MMO. Not sure if it's coming to the West or not but it's a start right? :D

Because the franchise sells like hot cakes on the handhelds, and it's a lot cheaper to make on handhelds. So more profit.
Plus, the 3DS has a ton more consoles sold than the Wii U, and there was always an emphasis on trading with your friends who had the other version.

but with the power of the wii u n the internet being able to fight n trade would be better than ever

3DS has internet capabilities, so moot point.

Because they don't want our monies.

I want Pokemon RPG on WiiU. Not an MMO, WTF?

Not that I don't enjoy Pokemon, but maybe the developers are just too lazy to change the formula.

The game has pretty much been the same since the beginning with a few new additions. They do change the Pokemon each generation, but the formula is the same.

It took them this long to make Pokemon more 3D.

It sells like crazy, they are making a ton of profit from this franchise, pretty sure they have the money and the resources to do it, but they might not have the willpower to do it.

id love to see a true pokemon mmo but if the developers can keep churning out the same old crap n selling it y are they going to change but if they really wanted to sell some
wii u's that'd be how to do it n the console versions always jus felt a bit lacking n restricted but if the wii u really is as powerful as the say they should be able to make a great next gen of pokemon but they should defo start wiv the first gen of pokemon agen as they were by far the best

Nin needs to wake up

Because Nintendo is incredibly stagnant and complacent. You guys keep buying the same old stuff so they see no need to invest in a large budget modern project. Why bother risking anything when they can churn out a dozen franchise milking spinoffs for the same cost? Nintendo will only wake up when Nintendo fans stop putting up with it.

I want a 3D pokemon RPG with drop in online like Diablo3,and PVP obviously.Not an MMO.
AdvanceWarsSgt  +   786d ago
Can't take Pokemon with me if its on a console, which is its primary appeal. Plus, I doubt it would sell more than any of the handheld games.
CaptainCamper  +   786d ago
Is that because nobody has a Wii U? ;)

If a pokemon mmo is ever made it needs to be on 3ds.
