Pokémon’s world is about to get a little more crowded
In a world of seemingly unending Pokémon games, we are officially blessed with two more. Why shouldn’t we be? It is in fact the 20th Anniversary of the franchise. Don’t forget, we are also getting Pokémon GO! this year as well as Pokken Tournament in March. So really, that’s four new Pokemon games this year alone. With that being said boys and girls, let me introduce you to Pokémon Sun and Moon.
Now that you have had some time to pick your jaws up off the ground. Lets get right down to what this means and what we saw.
You may have first asked yourself, ‘Did I just see Blastoise and Machamp riding in vehicles?’ If you did, you aren’t wrong. Its not completely clear where the location of the game is. But one thing is for sure, there are vehicles.
One of the most interesting new features that is rolling out with the re-release of Red and Blue is Pokémon Bank. With Pokémon Bank, players will be able to move their Pokémon from Red, Blue, and Yellow to Sun and Moon. Red and Blue released on February 27th. An added bonus here is that Pokémon from the previously released Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, X, and U will also be transferable to Sun and Moon.
This means, that the Mewtwo you captured many moons ago will now be able to be recaptured and played on a newer game in the franchise. Sun and Moon are really re-defining what it means to catch’em all.
In regards to pure gameplay elements being introduced in Sun and Moon, we got no information on that during Nintendo’s announcement. The majority of the Nintendo event covered the franchises history. During Nintendo’s event it was stated that Sun and Moon will release later this year in time for the holidays. Whats more impressive is they will release worldwide, covering nine different languages.
With Sun and Moon releasing holiday 2016, it brings up an interesting thought that conventional wisdom points to the Nintendo NX being launched holiday 2016 but that doesnt seem likely. What Nintendo NX will be however is yet to be seen. How does the franchise play into this and what does this mean for the franchise overall? Only time will tell. Until then, lets play some Pokken Tournament this March on our trusty Wii U!http://radiopressgaming.com/2016/03/the-world-of-pokemon-is-about-to-get-a-little-more-crowded/http://radiopressgaming.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/pmon20-1-1024x576.jpghttp://radiopressgaming.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/pmon20-1-150x150.jpg3DSEntertainmentNintendoToys3ds,nintendo,pokemonIn a world of seemingly unending Pokémon games, we are officially blessed with two more.
