I hope this is a brand new Pokemon game with a new setting and not just "Pokemon Stars", the third game of Sun and Moon.

Like I said I'd rather they go back to Kanto and remake Yellow because Red/Blue have been remade but obviously the third game, the more complete game didn't. With consoles at least you have a reason to just make the one version as less people will be taking their Switches around then the 3DS.

Pokemon Spark Yellow please

I just wonder the direction of a 3D full on Pokemon RPG game. An RPG like Ni No Kuni, Elder Scrolls or Final Fantasy? I just hope it isn't what they've been doing for the handheld games but the visuals have been upgraded a little.

I like the idea of going back to Kanto, but if anything I bet you It will be pokemon stars/eclipse.

What also might happen is they will make diamond and pearl remakes for both the switch and 3ds. If this is the case I would make the 3ds copies be diamond and pearl and the switch version platinum.

There will be a Sun/Moon port coming called 'Stars' or whatever within a year im sure.

But this other title they're working on is obviously a future instalment for the Switch.

The original teaser for Sun and Moon had a brief snippet where you could see a hi-def model of Pikipek: https://www.aconsejan2te.co...

It's too bad, really. I prefer the designs of the earlier gens a lot more. Hopefully if it's an updated Sun/Moon it sees a ton of improvements.

It's funny because I've always wanted it to evolve but I loved the top down view as it made it seem more open

The older games had more charm on style

Wow Nintendo finally coming to the reality that Pokemon on a home console could be a success? Ah noo, too bad the Switch is just a mutated handheld :/

Thunder_G0d_Bane2377d ago

BoTW on my Switch on my monitor looks better than half the games this gen has to offer. Plus the gameplay is far superior than most games this gen.

Cashh me outside how bout dat?

nX2377d ago

Hahaha a PS3 could run BotW @30fps.

MrBrofist2376d ago

Can we not quote that stupid ass meme that dumbass child started? Annoying....

deafdani2377d ago

Yes, a PS3 could run BOTW, but it would have to look worse, with lower resolution and lesser graphical effects. Then it could run it, maybe at 30 fps.

But people downplaying it because of its cartoony art direction have obviously not played it. The game is graphically pretty demanding. The animations of everything and the physics engine at play are incredibly impressive.

It could run on PS3 without breaking a sweat, I own a switch and botw but game looks like crap to me , bad textures no AA and performance issues and voice acting is a joke
But I guess to Nintendo fanboys this is revolutionary I'd give this game a 7/10 cuz gameplay , is very good

I know I sound angry but I expected way better from Nintendo , and the game has gone through several downgrades too ,switch is a great console with great potential but Nintendo is too lazy

Darkfist_Flames2377d ago

Did this studio tried making a new ip rpg?

Nintendew2377d ago

I remember a article about this months ago saying the switch game goes with sun and moon but maybe not in the way we think ether.
The only game I remember that went with the Pokemon series that made a console appearance was Pokemon Stadium, besides the GC one as well.

It's fine to stay working on the same IP that you are experts and experience on. Considering the fan base etc but should also build on new IPs. If you are good at making jrpgs or fighting games you should have the experience to create something new in a new world new name. Cause lately its been remakes, games with the same series aka Cod, tales, FF. Sometimes gaming needs a fresh world unrelated to existing games yes it can flop like forspoken but horizon and got did fine and they were totally different then there last game.

There's all kinds of new things out there. Indie through aaa. I mean yea they don't take chances like they used to back in the day but some still do. Capcom did exoprimal(close enough) not my cup of tea (online) but just an example. Square did a handful recently, it's the eas and ubisofts that don't take chances

Knightofelemia2h ago(Edited 2h ago)

I just want a Xenosaga trilogy HD remaster or remake such a great trilogy. I like Namco they are one of my favorite developers/publishers. Love the Tales games and I would also like a new Dynasty Warriors Gundam game. I would like Namco to continue having great hits both new and old but I also don't want them to forget some of their obscured titles.


EVE: Vanguard isn’t “just another generic shooter in an EVE skin,” promises CCP Games

A brand new PvPvE shooter, EVE: Vanguard, looks to succeed where Dust 514 did not as a candid CCP Games reflects on its 20-year journey.

SlothLordPootus5h ago

Dust 514 was such a unique game back in the day. I only played probably 10 hours of it because the balancing was way off, but otherwise it was an interesting idea.

Inverno5h ago

Was a unique idea that was never realized, it didn't go beyond just being and playing like an outdated generic FPS. It never got better, and then they shut it down. If this follows the standard of your typical service style fps then it won't live long either.
