A 'surprising announcement' regarding Pokemon will be unveiled next week. Is it a Pokemon Wii U Game?
I certainly hope so, it was rumored a while ago. My WiiU has been abandoned after 2 weeks of Mario Kart so I hope this is true :)
Same here I haven't even touched that game in a while I hope this Pokemon IP isn't a fighting game. ;)
back in our 90's kids days, we would play the same game for years..jesus u kids now a days
Yea I agree kiddo they just don't make em like they used to!
If this is true, expect Wii U sales to get a serious bump. Maybe the big N could have waited 1/2 a year or a year. Launching Wii U with games like this, Mario Kart 8, Zelda U, and the rash of other good games could have built some serious hype.
If they launched alongside the other two consoles i honestly think itd be in a better position. It had like 9 months of toxic press questioning its future. Imagine, with the PS4 and Xbone going through the current drought they'd have all these games ready to release and the system's software would be up to date.
exactly everyone woulda been giving greatpress and 3rd partys would of feel wway more pressure to develop for it
Errrr. Current drought? Fastest selling Playstation of all time, record Xbox sales. Nice drought.
He is talking about games drought and not how many consoles were sold.
"If this is true, expect Wii U sales to get a serious bump." It'll definitely be interesting to see if it helps. It's likely this won't be a traditional Pokemon game, (assuming its a game announcement) and if that's the case it'll be interesting to see how many consoles it shifts. I'm gonna keep my expectations low on this announcement... *wispers* NEVER FORGET CRANKY *wispers*
If it's the same gameplay as the handheld games, but with Wii U graphics, then consider me sold.
I find it strange they'd reveal this and fatal frame outside of a nintendo direct.
My guess is it's a Game Freak decision... Game Freak has more to do with Pokemon in general, Nintendo is involved in the games but really the anime, cards, etc. Game Freak would probably want to have a huge spotlight on their "baby" they've been keeping quiet. I am honestly thinking this is a Wii U game releasing this winter, shocking reveal!
Im not gonna get my hopes up for it but I certainly hope we see the Wii U get some Pokelove....honestly if they did with Pokemon what they're doing for Hyrule Warriors I would love it.. My guess is this is an announcement regarding the 3DS remakes of Ruby/Sapphire games and the Wii U title that was teased won't gett announced til after AR/OS and Smash Bros comes out. But still the Wii U title would be cool
Kanto Warriors: A Pokemon Story lol who am I kidding I would still by it.
Whatever happened to that Pokken?
Keep expectations low for this one ladies, keep em low.
You see, now if this isn't a Pokemon MMO or atleasr MPRPG, then Nintendo will be held responsible for the backlash thatensues coming from me and all the other people who have been hoping for that for the atleast a decade,because they stirred the flame including the word shocking, along with associating the Nintendo brand with it. I'm almost sure its not cause, I know Nintendont spend alot of money on their franchises and/or consoles, just be ready Nintendo.
If they make an open world Pokemon game with full 3d graphics and fully animated Pokemon battles I'd buy a WiiU just for that game alone immediately
Nooooooooooooooooooooooo. If this happens, then I will need to buy a Wii U, and I don't want to buy one of them..... I dunno hey, because they are releasing 3D Pokemon games on the 3DS now, so how would the Wii U version be different to them? Better graphics? That's a bit lame. Like people can't really say "Oh I want a 3D Pokemon game" because we have that now. It would kind of make sense for them to have the 3rd game of each Pokemon game set to release on Wii U. That would be kind of smart actually. Like having the Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire on 3DS and then Pokemon Emerald on Wii U. EDIT: It would probably have to be a full MMO Pokemon game.
I just hope it's not strictly a Pokemon battle game like that one on the Wii was. There wasn't even any sound effects. Pokemon RPG FTW!
