2019 is the year of PokĂ©mon. This notion was cemented when Nintendo announced the release of the brand new PokĂ©mon games for the switch: PokĂ©mon Sword And Shield. Youâ€™ve probably already heard of these two; every PokĂ©mon fan has. But thatâ€™s not just it, we also have a new game being released for iOS and Android devices. In other words, PokĂ©mon Masters created by the legendary game studio DeNa, Â will be released this summer. It focuses on the combat side of PokĂ©mon, and takes place on Pasio island.
I think youâ€™ll agree with me, Itâ€™s very easy to argue that everyone loves PokĂ©mon! Well, why wouldnâ€™t they? It has a place deep in our hearts. From countless movies to games, it has captivated audiences and been the highlight of many peopleâ€™s childhoods, so much so that they still enjoy the game. Thatâ€™s why we are all thrilled whenever a new game or movie is announced.
Well, have you been awfully good lately? Because Arceus is feeling rather gifty. I guess he doesnâ€™t have to deal with Dialga and Palkia as much. Because, guess what? The PokĂ©mon Gods have blessed us once again. Thatâ€™s right - we have another brand new game coming out soon. The PokĂ©mon Company has once more made its fansâ€™ dreams come true by releasing yet another addition to the Pokemon franchise.Â It looks like Christmas has truly come early.
Letâ€™s talk about this new game. Whatâ€™re you waiting for? Keep reading to find out everything you need.
As the news just came in, we donâ€™t really know much about the game, but there are a few things we do know. Letâ€™s talk about them.
First of all, we know whoâ€™s developing the game! The Chinese giant Tencent is taking on the job. Their TiMi studio will be responsible for the mammoth task. This means weâ€™re in good hands. Why? Because Tencent is well-known for producing some fantastic games on mobile. The most famous of which is PUBG, also known to some as Game For Peace. And letâ€™s not forget the amazing PC game, League Of Legends.
With Tencentâ€™s history in the field of mobile gaming, itâ€™s safe to assume that the new game may be on a mobile-only platform, especially since Nintendo is soon releasing their flagship game for the switch, PokĂ©mon Sword and Shield. If this is the case, we should be expecting a game of high caliber as we all know how successful PokĂ©mon Go was. It took over the world, instantly becoming a phenomenon. Itâ€™s been 3 years and weâ€™re still obsessed with it! But, this assumption could also be negated as the tech giant Tencent recently signed a deal with Nintendo, allowing them to bring the Switch into China to boost sales.
If you think about it, itâ€™s interesting to speculate about what exactly this new game will cover. Throughout the 20 plus years that it has been around, PokĂ©mon has delved into all sorts of realms in its universe, so Â it will be interesting to see what kind of setting this newest addition takes place in.
Whatever it may be, PokĂ©mon has cemented itself in gaming culture, drawing in a diverse audience from elementary kids to adults. Itâ€™s an absolute sensation that has lasted for over 20 years and is still going strong. We all know that PokĂ©mon gained its loyal fanbase through the television series, first aired in 1987, and still running in 2019, with over a 1000 episodes produced!
Almost instantly, it skyrocketed into a worldwide success. Kids everywhere in the world know what PokĂ©mon is. Thankfully for us, I doubt weâ€™ll ever stop being a part of the phenomenon.
