Buying a 3DS for this:)

ZodTheRipper754d ago (Edited 754d ago )

I somehow can't get excited for 2D Pokemon anymore and I can't understand why Nintendo isn't keen on going 3D with it. There has to at least SOME AMBITION left at the guys from Gamefreak... how boring must it be to recycle everything every 2 years?

Just look at this sad list of their game releases:

Game Boy
Yoshi (Mario & Yoshi) (1991, Nintendo)
Nontan to Issho! Kuru-Kuru Puzzle (1994)
Pocket Monsters Red and Green (1996, Nintendo)
Pocket Monsters Blue (1996, Nintendo)
Pokémon Red and Blue (1996, Nintendo)
Pokémon Yellow (1998, Nintendo)

Game Boy Color
Pokémon Gold and Silver (1999, Nintendo)
Pokémon Crystal (2000, Nintendo)

Game Boy Advance
Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire (2002, Nintendo)
Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen (2004, Nintendo)
Pokémon Emerald (2004, Nintendo)
Drill Dozer (2005, Nintendo)

Nintendo DS
Pokémon Diamond and Pearl (2006, Nintendo)
Pokémon Platinum (2008, Nintendo)
Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver (2009, Nintendo)
Pokémon Black and White (2010, Nintendo)
Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 (2012, Nintendo)

Nintendo 3DS
HarmoKnight (2012, Nintendo)
Solitiba (2013, Nintendo)

Exactly, this excuse would be valid 5 years ago, not now. Nope. They need some true 3d. If they can then they should wait at least 4 years, develop a kicka*s 3D game. third person, first person etc.

LAWSON72754d ago (Edited 754d ago )

Pokemon X and Y from what I have seen are not 2D like its predecessors. Hell it looks like pretty much the whole game is 3D

Bhuahahaha753d ago (Edited 753d ago )

agreed

they should look @ ni no kuni battle system
and do some tweaking from it

ZodTheRipper753d ago

^I think the usermade Pokemon Generations got right how it SHOULD look like

Too bad it has been cancelled, I really hope we'll get something like this from Nintendo someday.

@Bhuahahaha+ZodTheRipper

Sorry but believe it or not that would dumb the game down. Pokemon has more depth than most actually realize.

Nature's, EV's, IV's and Team Composition are hard things to understand as an outsider to competitive Pokemon.

This game just needs to change graphically but expecting that on a 3DS beyond what has already changed is like expecting Crysis 3 at ultra settings on a PS3.

"how boring must it be to recycle everything every 2 years? " Again someone who has no idea how game development works and automatically assumes everything is recycled. How many Pokemon games have you played? One or two probably. Stop trying to have a minority opinion all the time in hopes of a community wide agreement.

LAWSON72753d ago (Edited 753d ago )

I see nothing wrong with Pokemon and its almost yearly installments. These milked games deliver every time with plenty of happy buyers, and still manage to update the core experience every 2-4 years like Red->Gold->Ruby->Pear l->Black->X.

These games have each made huge changes to the series throughout the years to deepen the core mechanics and keep the visuals and features up to industry standards. To this day, I dont think no game has the depth that Pokemon offers and that is due to the additions each core entry has added to the franchise

ZodTheRipper753d ago

What are you even rambling about? Are you accusing me of TRYING TO HAVE A MINORITY OPINION? O.o

I probably know much better than you how game development works, of course it was a slight exaggeration. I'm just sick of seeing almost no evolution to one of my favourite RPG franchises during the last 20 years even though they have more than enough ressources to make it happen. Why did Zelda go 3D? GTA? Final Fantasy? Pokemon could be so much bigger if they would just have the ambition to do it and I can't believe that there are people out there who want it to stay like it is. I would take a 3D remake of Red/Blue over a new 2D game anyday.

HonestDragon754d ago (Edited 754d ago )

I can't wait! I missed out on Generation III because I didn't have a Game Boy Advance, but this will certainly make up for it. These scans show that the games will pretty much be in the same format of Pokemon X and Y. At least, I hope this is how it will be.

mezati99754d ago

the most milked franchise ever in existence

crusf753d ago (Edited 753d ago )

*Game is successful year round with a release every year* It's Milked
*Game is moderately successful year round with a new installment every 4 years* Great game! We need more!
