Former EA developer and the founder of indie developer Nnooo, Nic Watt, has revealed an EA Pokémon competitor was in the works.
Wouldn't they normally just buy a company who is working on a Pokemon like a game. Then close them and make them do something else?
Yeah..maybe all those Worst Company of the year awards got to them...not really. Maybe they are waiting for the P Go craze to die down and then release their clone?
Or maybe they realized that they are lacking the creative talent to come up with this kind of game. Most likely, actually.
There is no Pokemon competitor. Many have tried already.
I probably played monster rancher more than Pokémon. Particularly the 2nd one. I wish they'd make a new one.
There was one called collectem that supposedly still in development for sony systems. Thing is its been in development for years and not much on it like they they taking a long break or something
I'd love a good rpg similar to Pokemon. But I'd want it to be for consoles
If the rumours are true then your in luck, new Pokemon game may be coming to the NX
Is it gonna be a true Pokemon game like the ones for game boy and 3ds or is it gonna be a spin off like go or that Pokemon game where you take pictures all day because the spin offs are ass
If it anything like Pokemon xd or Colosseum count me in
I guess the closest Pokemon competitor would be Ni No Kuni, I guess?
YoKai Watch maybe? It's big in Japan at least
Pokemon Battle Revolution was pretty awesome, but we need another game like Pokemon Colosseum, with multiple regions to explore. Hoenn, Kanto, Johto, Sinnoh. Where we can traverse all those regions defeating their respective gym leaders and Elite Fours. With all pokemon available, all wrapped up with a pretty good story. Why has Nintendo not done this yet? That has triple A all over it. Could be a potential GOTY.
Because why do that when they can split them all like they do? Your way: $40 game Nintendo's way: $80 for each region then $120 for the original Blue, Red, and Yellow I mean, you just gotta catch them all, right? Plus now they've found a way to add in meaningless accessories with the Z-Ring. $30 for the ring then $7 for a three pack of crystals to use with the ring.
Sad but true..
A pokemon mmo would be nice. If EA were going to clone pokemon they should make it similar to monster hunter and once you capture the monster you cage it, tame it and send it killing for you.
Good thing they didn't even try. They would have lost money.
Yeah, just like that shitty Smash Bros knockoff Sony tried to foist on gamers, haha... Nintendo can't be imitated. Don't even try.
EA and the greed.
A Poke clone with a $50 season pass. I'll pass.
Two points. 1. EA game will suck unless they have bioware doing it. 2. Nintendo will never release a full fledge Pokemon game on consoles because it will kill the DS. Something they're still trying to shove down our throats.
No because it defeats the meaning of Pocket Monsters.
And every new Pokemon is a microtransaction.
