Has there ever been a core Pokémon game announced in November or December? Seems like a bad time from a marketing perspective, as Nintendo is trying to sell you Mario Maker, Tri Force Heroes and Mario Tennis for Christmas, they're not going to want a distraction upstaging them.
X/Y was announced right after the Christmas and New Year holidays, in January 2013.
Pokémon Fire Red and Leaf Green were announced back in September 2003, but that was the latest time in the year, when they revealed new games.
I'm so sad and disappointed, but there's still hope next week, because of the Zygarde-Event on 12th November.
There won't actually be a Z game, will there? Instead we're expected to think that a shitty anime arc can make up for a full-fledged game that was supposed to save shitty Kalos? Surely they wouldn't have waited months after Zygarde promotions started to announce the actual game that's supposed to coincide with it?
Its nothing new. we kew he should be talking about music and also i've posted few times already that it doesnt change anything for the eventual annoucement.
From the very beginning we knew he will be there one day after CoroCoro so a reveal was out of the question because surely CoroCoro would have anything Mausda would talk about.
Still though he's visit being about music DOESNT CHANGE the possible annoucement during next week.
I can imagine it being this way
Annoucement + CoroCoro leak mid next week
Masuda talking about music and showing a short "surprise trailer"/new mega Pokemon etc
Just because one year has a break (like in EVERY GENERATION) it doesnt mean a game wont come out, dont be silly.
Giratina-O was revealed 3 months before Pokemon Platinum was so if Zygarde game will be announced in January it'll be 4 months after Zygarde formes were revealed. Nothing unusual plus Zygarde movie is summer 2016 so there's PLENTY of time to announce and release Zygarde game
>the ladies, as Rinka and Nicole have a match! This is Rinka's first battle in Pokénchi, and she struggles greatly against Nicole's power-oriented battle style!?
New game announcement this month guys, keep calm.
But it was long for the Japanese audience and since now we're basically have their schedule we must expect the same treatment as them in the past.
Oh well if its next week cool if not then its early next year. Its not the end of the world AND what most important: we still might get some new info about Zygarde or some other forms/megas that will be in the game.It still might be very exciting time even without the annoucement
Why the fuck do you need a game so badly? Play something else. Play an old Pokémon game. Do something else with your life. You don't need a new game every single year, have some damn patience and stop getting hype when you haven't been promised a damn thing. I hope at this rate we don't get a new game until 2020.
Yea this. 2020 sounds a bit extreme, but it's really sad how (some) people of this fanbase get so entitled when there isn't a main game in a year. There are enough franchises that occasionally take a year break like for example Zelda, so all those "we don't deserve to wait so long as a Pokemon fan" seems really stupid imo.
Why do we want a main game every year anyway? Is there really nothing else then Pokemon in your live? It's like people want Pokemon to become the next annual franchise like Call of Duty or Assassin's Creed.
Annual releases really takes away development time and/or the "special feeling" of that particular franchise. Spoon feed something to someone too much, and they get sick of it some day. Getting too much of something "similar" makes that thing not special anymore. It's probably one of the main causes of COD's and AC's decline of sales.
Besides that, shouldn't we want good games that lasts very long? Don't get me wrong, I liked XY and ORAS but they lack in the content department. Sometimes, I feel like the Gen 6 games where only made for online, while Gen 4 and Gen 5 had content + online. So more development time COULD mean a game with more content and a overall better experience. I rather have good games with content every 2/3/more years then a game that may or may not be good every year.
I know that there are people that ask for a main game now not because they want Pokemon to be annual, but because it's been quite long now (talking about the people who began to wonder why there isn't an announcement yet around August-September).. I feel that way too, but it's no big deal for me. An announcement is probably coming sometime in the future so it's better to just relax and wait patently for it.
Not the same when we have Pokemon Go in the works and the anime is covering Zygarde. If they weren't going to do a Z this is the way to do it.
>b-b-but they wouldn't do that
Frontier anyone? Over and over people said it would surely be there because people wanted it, but they didn't.
XY seemed to lack content because they made the jump to models, and to compete with mobile games. They were worried that if the game was too complicated people would ditch it for mobile games.
I think people are getting impatient because a new game is repeatedly teased. Everyone knows the game is coming.
If Z was going to be released in "a few months" it would already be announced. They aren't going to announce a brand new Pokemon game and release it 2 months later. It's not happening early 2016, and unless we get an announcement soon it's not happening mid 2016 either.
You shouldn't be calling anyone other than yourself stupid.
you do realize announcement and release is different things?
all this teasing could lead into a eventual announcement at the beginning of next year, with the reveal of volcanion. and it could still be released March, April, May, whatever. patterns don't mean shit anymore. they are clearly taking a different approach to this marketing Campaign.
They are not going to announce something in January then release a game in March or April. May at the earliest after an announcemen, which would still be half a year after all this Zygarde stuff.
unless you work at Gamefreak or are from the future, don't state opinions as fact.
they could do whatever the hell they want.
just because YOU think something doesn't mean it's reality.
If there’s no game announcement this year, I can’t believe Zygarde will be mascot of the next games. Then we have to get something different, because Zygarde forms are too old by next year.
It will. Im about to create a thread where i will clarify WHY the next game is Kalos and Zygarde game. Look forward to it in just a few minutes. Its probably something A LOT of people never noticed...
WE ARE WAITING FOR THE ANNOUNCEMENT YOU FUCKS
GAME CAN BE AWAY FOR YEARS I JUST WANT TO SEE THE ANNOUNCEMENT YOU USELESS SHITS
This month is the best time for an announcement. In December we will start to get movie news and in early 2016 there will be the official reveal of Volcanion probably. So we should see a game announcement before February 2016 at the latest. There’s also that hidden big new Pokémon plush to be released in early December in Japan.
Beside that, mobile phones and mobile game devices compete. Hardware sales are slipping while the mobile market is increasing. So course companies have to take that into consideration.
