Is Nintendo's latest trademarked 'Pokémon Adventure Camp' property heading to Wii?
When it comes down to it, Pokémon is going to make piles of cash no matter what kind of game is released. You could even do a typing game with a keyboard peripheral and kids would still want it... oh wait, they did that already.
While Nintendo has already announced their and Game Freak's plans to release a direct sequel to the last generation of Pokemon in the likes of Pokemon Black and White 2 for the DS, a new trademark that's been filed by the folks at GameFreak, Nintendo, and Creatures Inc. points to a new game heading to the Wii :
If you can't read moonrunes, or Japanese as what I'm being told those squigly lines above are, they translate into 'Pocket Monsters Adventure Camp.' I have a little bit of a hunch that this will probably be something closer to the PokePark series for the Wii, rather than another property being introduced to the handheld market, or at least an extension of it.
Any guesses on what we can expect?
Perhaps it is a pokemon horror survival game where the dreaded ghost and dark pokemon wander the camp and---no that will never happen.
Nothing gets past me.
Yes, that's it. You caught me.
Because I'm right? Okay, sure.
...Aaaand you lost me. I can no longer take you seriously.
Urr...Pokemon is about the least original game franchise in the world, from Pokemon Red to Black, they've basically been the same game with minor improvements and increasingly stupid looking Pokemen.
You still seem to be missing MY point. The reason there is the difference is because Pokemon puts something out that is original and different each time around, but CoD doesn't.
True. Either way, I really wanna play it again.
What? My point was never that they were better or worse than each other, my point was that the Pokemon BRAND is milked to death and people ignore it, yet you get an annually released game and people throw a massive tantrum about it.
But that's not true at all. If anything, that provides MORE opportunity.
And if you admit that, you've nullified you're original stance.
My point being that it's hard to have variety in games each year if you only release one game a year, unlike Pokemon which releases about 5000 games a month.
I think you're avoiding what I'm saying. Pokemon has variety. It gets several different games a year, yes, but they are different. They aren't the same release with minor changes, unlike CoD.
What? I'm not even sure what you just said makes sense, but regardless of how different the games can be, the Pokemon brand still gets milked for all its worth every year.
While the console is the best way to play the game, you can get it on Steam for $10.
But it's still the same: with these, it isn't. And obviously, it isn't hard, because as you said, Nintendo does it. It's not a double standard. It's common sense.
well this is a spin-off game, not a regular entry.
oh man i remember that game. Shit i gotta dig it out and play it again. Greatest platformer since Banjo-Tooie.
Just putting it out there, there are going to be Psychic type pokemon at the camp, so it could be expected that there will be one named Razsputin at some point...or I'll find you.
Well you got me on that one and it's a good point, but as you said most of them were re-released, when they do a new one they usually take some time, anyway I agree on pokemon being milked, maybe there is variety but still, there are a lot of pokemon games every year haha
The difference being there is just one of those, it's a bit hard to have variety when there's only one game out every year.
