Following up on the story regarding a full-fledged Pokemon title on the Wii, it also looks like a MMO entry in the series can be ruled out for now as well.
*Sigh* Why won't Nintendo take any chances with there franchises, this generation proves this in every sense. SSBB = SSBM + Sonic LoZ:TP = LoZ:OOT + Turning into a wolf. Even the new Zelda game looks like Phantom Hour Glass with a train instead of a boat.
because things like Wii sports and Wii fit are making them a boat load of money. Why stray from what making you the most profit. That my take on it.
True, but it just seems a shame, Nintendo were willing to take chances before, why not now. Saying that i guess they just continue to reason the likes of Zelda just to keep the fans happy now.
" because things like Wii sports and Wii fit are making them a boat load of money. Why stray from what making you the most profit. That my take on it." Because from a developers standpoint that doesn't make sense. Just because Wii-fit is selling really well doesn't mean they forgot about their other titles. Even Mr.Miyamoto said that he is best at making traditional games, hell this is the same guy who came up with Wii-fit. " Even the new Zelda game looks like Phantom Hour Glass with a train instead of a boat." Eh yea, and OOT looks like LTTP but in 3D. If you actually played the games the differences in these games is how puzzles are involved and the items are being used. Just by looking at a video doesn't tell jack. Hell many people even claim all zelda games are about zelda and ganon.(wich is FALSE) If anyone noticed it, you can clearly see its what the developers want, not Nintendo as a whole.
when as Nintendo every hear what their fans want?
A Pokemon MMO would be pretty fun but I doubt I would be able to deal with the community. There would be way too many little kids that would play non-stop and they would completely destroy my ass in a battle then proceed to make fun of me and stomp on what little pride I had left.
They won't ever release a MMO. If they did they would have to keep it constantly updated. Lets think about how many chances this IP had made. 0 This been the same since the late 90's and won't because its a cash cow. Add a new event, don't update the graphics, add some new sparkles, and a 30 pokemon. This will all they will be ever. Next will be Pokemon Rainbow, Glitter and Sparkles.
CHILDREN are stupid. pokemon hasn't change at all. mmo should have already happened.
Does it need to change? Every year "kids" get tired of it, and every year NEW kids start to enjoy it. Although there should be a real time Pokemon game too, in a sense of "Gotcha Force".
