A fix for the Wii U, a true console Pokemon?
« on: 09:44 PM - 07/21/14 »
Hey guys, of course we are generally all about XIM capable games here, but...
 
I was thinking today about Nintendo and their problem that is the Wii U, and how it may be that they could come back from the grave (some at least) may be to release a high quality Pokemon game for the Wii U. There has never been a true console Pokemon game (stadium didn't count) and I think this may be a good thing. While Nintendo has made some grave mistakes the past few generations, I still believe that the industry needs them and that they should not fail.
 
Thoughts?

This could help Nintendo, but for the Wii U:

The WiiU is finally picking up steam. With the games it has now and the games on the horizon, for me, it's finally something of value. I picked up the Mario Kart bundle for my son and got Wind Waker for free. I haven't played WW but from what I hear it's great. Looking forward to ZeldaU, Splatoon, Starfox, ZombieU, and Smash. A new Metroid couldn't hurt but so far they haven't announced anything. I do think it will finish with mediocre sales numbers in the end but that's ok, Nintendo has enough money in the bank to make up for it next cycle.

Not much of a pokemon fan but given it's audience, a Pokemon open world RPG would make a lot of people happy.

A Pokemon MMO for the Wii U could create some crazy hype

Besides that the console already gets the best exclusives :(
Xenoblade 2 and Bayonetta 2 really push me towards a Wii U :(

Nice point K_U. I watch that show sometimes too if it's on, great way to learn, watching anime  ;)
 
I hear ya Od1n, they do have some awesome exclusives. An MMO? @#$%, didn't even cross my mind, but I bet that would be super successful! I actually haven't played a Pokemon game either in years, but think I will pick up the new one. I just know how stupid popular it is and that's what brought me to this possible conclusion.

I also picked up Mario Kart 8 and got Wind Waker for free (nice promotion Nintendo!). Haven't had a chance to play it yet either, but I have a few weeks back inport coming up soon, and I intend to be doing lots of gaming and WW is on my list!!

I also would like someday to see an actual console port of Advance Wars. That game is awesome.

wind waker is great, make sure to listen to the music when you are on the dragon roost island, one of the nicest zelda songs in the entire series :)
(on par with gerudo valley and stone tower temple for me)

I am foregoing a PS4 or Xbox One to get a Wii U. Ninja's suggestion actually. If they came out with 3D pokemon on Wii U, none of you would ever see me again.

Heck yeah. I remember first reading about Pokemon in Nintendo power when it was under development, and I must have been like...11 years old or something! I remember being all excited about the social features, but when it came out, noone I knew played it except for my brothers, adn they weren't nearly as into it as I was anyway lol. I have heard from friends at work that X & Y have good social features, so I am thinking about picking it up before my next cruise. A lot of kids play it here.

Knowing that the next set of Pokemon games (Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire) will implement a lot of social features from what I have seen in some Youtube clips include making your own gym from your secret base just makes an MMO/RPG style Pokemon on Wii-U even more likely if any of this new stuff takes off.

Most the social ideas that were implemented in Ruby and Sapphire were limited by the GBA's capabilities and were too ahead of its time. The remakes might determine if there is going to be any type of RPG Pokemon game on the Wii-U with all the global interaction that is planned to be added from the older features of Ruby and Sapphire.

I can spend a day talking about this...

Something that annoys me with the newer pokemon titles it that the chance for you to get all the pokemon gets harder and harder, not only do you need both versions but a lot of times you also need older pokemon games to transfer them from there
