Pokemon MMO, World of Warplanes, Super Hero Squad Online and more! The Weekly Loot Ep 70
Gamers around the world have been itching to hear something official relating to a Pokemon MMO for what feels like an age, but that wait is finally over! During a recent interview with VentureBeat Game Director Junichi Masuda gave his reasoning behind the lack of a Pokemon MMO:
"Of course, we hear all the opinions we get from our fans about an MMORPG," game director Junichi Masuda. "But right now, we're still unsure whether this core gameplay at the center of Pokémon--catching the Pokémon and raising them--would really translate well or really match the MMORPG format. Right now we think the best way for the widest possible audience to enjoy the games is the way we develop them now."
During the course of the interview it becomes pretty clear that currently, the developers feel the handheld market is the best home for the massive franchise. Okay, so it's not the good news Pokemon fans have been hoping to hear but it's the first time GameFreak have acknowledged the MMO potential in a while. Maybe a sign of things to come?
