This game actually looks incredible. I hope they can get it running well, since the trailer looked a bit choppy at times. If the switch can run BOTW, it can run this. Either way, I'm so glad to see that GF finally listened to their fanbase.
Yet another good reason for a Switch Pro to exist.
Hopefully gf doesn't do the bare minimum this time around
Yea I’m quite nervous. They finally made the overworld look the way it should, but I’m concerned that the quests will be bland, difficulty will still be far too easy (just add an optional hard mode for goodness sake), and there will be minimal depth for exploration similar to Sword and shield.
Really? This? So far not even close.
Would it be so hard to just grab BoTWs Hyrule and fill it with Pokemon? I know the games a year away but I'm not holding my breath.
Yes, very hard, that’s not how game design works 😅
Koei Seem to do copy and paste about every popular anime, I'm sure Pokemon would be piece of cake.
@SenorFartCushion This assumption is coming from an industry legend, I presume? Which AAA titles have you worked on, again?
@SenorFartCushion "Yes, very hard, that’s not how game design works" WHAT? are you not familiar with the term "MOD"? watch this: https://www.youtube.com/wat... and tell us with a straight face that "NINTENDO CAN'T DO IT WITH BoTW & POKEMON"! is Nintendo really THAT incompetent that a free MOD for an early access game can do it way better than they do with their own IP? are you really THAT gullible when it comes to NIntendo??
You complained about them not making a big open world game, they do it and you still complain. You complained about them not making faithful remakes of their older games, they do it and you still complain.
That's what he does. And then he gets angry if you call him out on that. He doesn't support anything Nintendo related, I don't even remember the last time he actually said a good comment about anything they put forth. Why even comment if it's always being the Debbie Downer? Game is still so far away from completion that lots can change.
What's there to praise if they still don't put in effort in making it the best they can? Do the remakes hafto look so aesthetically dull? The chibi art style isn't even the problem. Links Awakening looks pretty great, but let's go further back. Ni No Kuni has a chibi art style while in the overworld, and the scale is much bigger. These remakes are one to one with the DS titles but in 3D. There's so much more little details they can add, more dense cities and more NPCs to make it livelier and they don't and they won't. Why's it too much for some of you to accept criticism towards Pokemon?
Foxtrot is always upset and that is customary.
@SpeedDemon Foxtrot is complaining because he asked for bread, but what he got was unfinished dough. This is a open world Pokemon game with only one town, no customization, your focus is solely on catching Pokemon, and your character even loses HP if he doesn’t catch Pokemon. And on top of that it looks like alpha gameplay. Why are peoples standars so incredibly low when it comes to Pokemon? They’re one of the richest game companies in the world, it’s no wonder they don’t make any effort when they sell millions no matter what they do.
@stupidusername Exactly People are so blind You ask for something, you get something half arsed and you are expected to shut up and like it @Neonridr Dude, please...stop You are ALWAYS defending Nintendo whatever they do, you were even defending Skyward Sword being full price despite not being that much of an improvement and thinking that would do it for a 35 Anniversary celebration If you've all got to call the user rather than giving a GOOD counter point then you clearly don't know what to say because you can't
@Stupidusername These complaints being used are just weak. A unfinished game looks unfinished? It may end up not having a lot of depth, but we haven't seen enough of it to determine that. The compaint for the remakes "I don't like the chibi look", the old games had chibi characters...
It looks wildy outdated. If you take all the systems from 2D pokemon and put it in freeroam, just feels barebones. They need to add more core systems to the game, not just throwing poke balls from 3rd person and riding ur poke like a small horse. Any other brand we'd be saying wat is this garbage 😆
So what you're saying is that this is Virtually The Legend of Pokémon Go: Breath of The Wild?
Looks promising. We need to see more gameplay, the footage looked very early dev.
I have been waiting for a game like this since I was around 7 years old. I cannot wait! I do wish it was a more modern world, but creating the first Sinnoh Pokédex sounds cool; even though this particular generation looks out of place from the rest of the Pokémon generations.
Looks a little rough. Hope they take their time
Don't get the fuss over all these pokemon games, they look so boring. and they could have released a game like this over 10 years ago.
Nostalgia is classified as a literal addictive substance
Yeah, I don't get it either. Pokemon games are boring
The only Pokémon game I played and liked was Yellow (I know so controversial) and after that I recognized every one since was clone of that one. What I didn't know at the time was that Yellow was a clone of Red and Green with Pikachu as a starter Pokémon. lol but hey at the time I was in the age demo and watching the anime some of the time (never watched the movies only played the trading card game briefly never could get into that stuff). I did get the odd Pokémon Christmas gift here and there until about age 12. I don't have basically any of those things anymore. I had to rebuy Yellow to recapture that nostalgic feeling for the New 3DS... unfortunately it's not the same playing it in color. Still seeing it and seeing what people are playing now... I'm at a total loss the IP has stayed totally stagnant. I can't think of any other franchise or IP that managed to change so little on literally every level and not just maintain such a massive fanbase for 25 years but it freaking grew! They must spray the air with and the carts with crack to keep them coming back.
Well, we wanted an open world Pokemon game, but we want it to be a full-fledged RPG with a rich world. This looks like the intern was messing around with assets. Hoping that's all this is. A proof of concept.
Yeah I felt similar, it looked like something someone made in Dreams on PS4
Looks interesting, but I’ll need to see more before it really grabs my attention.
I love my switch but who are we kidding. This doesn’t look incredible to me. It looks about 480p, and really rough visually. I always wanted an open world Pokémon game but as an actual RPG with a campaign, travel etc. This is about catching and filling a Pokédex. I didn’t bother with catching all species back in the day and wouldn’t now.
Never been into Pokémon, so I don't really get the complaints, but it has a release of 2022 down, so just be thankful they're showing any gameplay at all instead of some placeholder title or something. People getting moody over nothing.
