  • @Billy I though that the rumor was of a true remaster, but I agree: I would't buy a simple port. Pokemon games as they're built are too disposable, so I'd finish Sun and Moon on 3DS rather than drop $60 on Sun 2 and Moon 2.

  • @Haru17 I haven't really looked into any of the rumors, so I have absolutely no idea. I guess we may very well see tomorrow morning!

    I just think it'd be weird to blow any kind of huge reveal so close to E3. Maybe whatever it is will be playable at the event? I guess Nintendo marches to its own beat, though. More power to 'em.

  • I think it's going to be Pokken Deluxe, touch on mobile apps, and then tease for something big at E3. Hoping for something cool, though.

  • Banned

    @Haru17 said in Pokémon Direct 6/6 at 7 am Pacific:

    3DS to Switch isn't an incremental leap in graphics, lol.

    You know, now that you mention it, Super Smash Bros look almost identical on both.

  • It's probably some more mobile phone crap.

  • All I know is that Koei Tecmo says they have an announcement for tomorrow as well and I saw someone guess Pokemon Conquest 2... If they annouce that for 3DS I am buying day one!

  • @Art That's because that 'leak' was faked: 3DS models running at a higher resolution.

  • Looking forward to this!

    Although as some of you have said, if it's just an enhanced port of Sun/Moon, I won't be getting it. I'll need some meaty new content to buy a new Pokemon game, I'm a bit burned-out on the series these days.

    Pokken Tournament Deluxe I would get in a heartbeat, it's one of the few Wii U titles I skipped, so I'd love to give it a shot.

  • Well, should've seen that coming :) It's cool, but it's hard not to be a little disappointed.

  • I was expecting little, and it was even worse than what I expected.

    "sigh" ... I don't think the day will come were I can be truly excited for this franchise.

  • i missed pokken on wii u so thats cool

    ultra sun and moon i have no interest in

    im Disappointed were not getting Chrystal too

  • Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon on 17th November

    Pokken Tournament Deluxe on 22nd of September (+5 New Pokemon!)

    and Pokemon Gold/Silver coming to 3DS Virtual Console!

    Exactly what I expected, although we didn't get very many details about the Ultra Moon/Sun. They said its an alternative story happening in the same world, and it has new pokemon that didn't appear in the 3DS titles.

    Pretty excited. I knew they wouldn't release a single version and they would double dip again.

    I don't know why any of you guys expected a HUGE new pokemon title this year. The switch is going to need huge graphics updates which will definitely take the extra year.

    Also, they have plenty coming out this year. There's a lot of reason to simple wait for 2018 for a big pokemon game.


  • Gold and Silver is nice, but of course they don't include crystal because that would make too much sense.

  • @Stormcrownn In hindsight, it's exactly what I knew to expect. However, sometimes you let yourself dream a little.

    And it'll be nice to have Pokken Tournament, since I never picked it up for my Wii U. But I haven't even really hit up the post-game content for Sun/Moon, so it's a toss up whether I'd get Ultra versions at this point. Sometimes even a small addition may strike me to the heart and persuade a buy from me.

  • @Stormcrownn They did announce a huge new Pokemon game for this year: the Ultra versions of Sun and Moon. People reacted and started crying doom because it was only for 3DS, but those games will sell quite well. Moreover, Pokemon announcements are always the most boring things imaginable, with barely more than a cover shown until E3 proper. At least we know that there will be a new story and actual new Pokemon (which I presume are different to just the legendary forms).

  • Kinda excited about Pokken as I missed that, also excited about Silver & Gold getting a VC release as the battery in my original is dead.
    Kinda disappointed that US/UM is 3DS only, but who knows maybe something is being saved for next week.

  • @Haru17 You're right, this will sell very well. And the development costs should be relatively low since the framework is already there. All that money will then be funneled towards future projects, so this is still an exciting thing for those dying for a Switch title. If you're not excited for another 3DS version, think of it as a fundraiser of sorts. It'll take a long time to get a Switch game rolling, but at least it's more likely to be a brand new installment instead of a Sun/Moon iteration.

  • Yeah, I'd be shocked if we saw Alola on Switch now. It looks like Stars was just a rumor and it's going to take them a while to remodel those 800+ Pokemon in current gen 3D. After which they'll release them as Pokemon Gypsium and Cobalt or what have you.

  • @Haru17
    There's no denying that US/UM will sell well, hell if I remember right B&W2 sold better then their original releases.
    I just find it odd that no Switch version was announced (Thus with the combined power of Pokemon and Monster Hunter granting Nintendo a licence to print money) then again like I said its possible something will be announced at E3 for next year, As everything covered today is for 2017
