Pokémon Announcement – New Generation Coming To 3DS

pokemonexyLast week Nintendo made players aware of an exciting announcement that would be posted on both the UK and Korean versions of the website today, Tuesday 9th January. Well the big announcement has been made and it was worth every second of the wait.

The announcement included details about 2 upcoming Pokémon games, adding a new generation to one of the most popular handheld franchises on the planet. Pokémon X and Pokémon Y include a brand new game world to explore and a whole new generation of Pokémon, but that’s not the best bit.

Players can expect to explore a full 3D experience bought to life by the 3DS. A trailer accompanied the announcement showing footage for the first time. The trailer shows off some of the new Pokémon, the exciting new game world and the vastly improved combat system that has more in common with the likes of Pokémon Stadium than with previous handheld titles.

It’s not the MMO news some were hoping for, namely me, but that’s not really realistic considering the influence Pokémon has on handheld sales. However it is a giant step forward for the franchise as it’s the first truly 3D Pokémon experience. Previous titles have been in 3D such as Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, but both seemed to sacrifice the traditional Pokémon experience in exchange for better graphics.

For more information on Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, including the new trailer, visit the official website here.

Season 2 Of Telltale Games The Walking Dead In “Early Stages”

Telltale-Games-The-Walking-DeadFollowing the huge success of the original episodic series of The Walking Dead the developers, Telltale Games, have just announced that they’re in the brain storming stage for season 2.  Fans have been discussing the possibility of a second season since the first was released, and following confirmation from the developers, many were hoping to get the second rendition sometime this year. However in a recent interview with Redbull UK Telltale Games CEO Dan Connors explained that the game was still in an early brain storming stage.

“Right now we are just starting to form the concept for season two. This all remains to be seen but we are definitely figuring out how to carry the saves over.”

Although it came as a disappointment for fans that were hoping to get their hands on season 2 within the next few months, it’s great news to see that they’re hoping to allow players of the original to copy over their save file. This also says a lot about the state of the game itself.

Obviously they’re going to be including characters from the original game, otherwise there would be no use in remembering the choices made before playing season 2. This had led to lots of speculation over the characters that finished in season 1, depending on the choices made by the player. I’d like to go into more detail but there’s nothing worse than unsuspected spoilers in a news article so I’ll leave that for another day.

Did you enjoy season 1? Would you grab the full package for season 2 or still purchase it on an episode by episode basis?

Pokémon Fans – 3 Days Until Exciting Announcement

pokemon worldI’ve lost count at the amount of times I’ve mentioned the potential of a Pokémon MMO and after seeing the teaser at the end of Pokémon Black/White 2 trailer, I’m more excited than ever. The trailer, that was aired in Japan, hinted at an exciting announcement that will appear on the official Pokémon on January 8th. A specific time wasn’t give but the announcement will be seen on both American and Japanese versions of the website, the first time that a joint announcement has been made.

The official Pokémon Twitter account stated: “Pokémon fans, mark your calendars! Check [the website] on January 8th for some big news”. Pokémon Black/White 2 was announced in Japan but an international message followed very quickly, but still not at the exact same time. Could the first joint message be a big announcement for arguably the most anticipated MMO of all time, Pokémon Online?

Sadly, probably not. It’s more likely to be an announcement regarding another handheld game or possibly a 3D version for the newly released Wii-U. Regardless, for the next few days my brain will be racing at the thought of a potential Pokémon MMO. The potential is unrivaled, the following is already huge, it’s what fans have been screaming for. But have Nintendo been listening? We’ll have to wait until Tuesday to find out.

Whatever the announcement, be sure to check the official Pokémon Website on January 8th.
