If you've ever wished your Pokémon were less "cute fuzzy creatures" and more "scantily clad anime girls" (you know who you are), Pocket Master is the game for you:




The game apparently features evolution, so you can watch your barely covered babes turn into what I assume are even more scantily clad cuties. It's no Moemon, but it brings a kinda new gameplay style while you journey to defeat the evil Mewtwo.

It's available for both iOS and Android. Play it while you can, probably!

We may not get Silent Hills but that isn't stopping Norman Reedus from beginning his video game career. Daryl Dixon himself appears to be starring in the iOS game adaptation of the hit zombie show The Walking Dead.

Based on the trailer it appears to be something of a strategy RPG where players take control of a group of apocalypse survivors fending off walker bites. If there's any character customization you can expect to waste hours of your life on this one.

Nintendo has announced plans to produce five mobile games by March 2017 in partnership with DeNa.  They have not yet announced what games those will be, but you can be sure they won't be direct ports.  According to President Iwata, they anticipate direct ports being unsuccessful because they "would not match the play styles of smart devices, and the appropriate business models are different between the two, so we would not anticipate a great result."  Nintendo is hoping to acheive "significant results" in producing mobile games, so whatever they choose to do, it'll be a very deliberate decision.

Cliff Bleszinski a.k.a. CliffyB a.k.a. the mastermind behind the Gears of War series took to Twitter to express his displeasure at Nintendo's announcement that they're jumping into the smartphone games market later this year. While seen by some as the logical progression into an ever-growing market, others were a bit more cynical about the decision, worrying that Nintendo might Candy Crush-ify themselves with lame microtransactions and P2W content. CliffyB was firmly in the "this sucks" camp, as he expressed on Tuesday:

Nintendo has announced a partnership with Japanese mobile development company DeNA to create Nintendo games for mobile devices.  Previously, Nintendo has been averse to the mobile market, keeping its IP strictly on its own hardware.  According to Iwata,

Nintendo’s strength lies in, or our consumers see the most value in and are willing to pay money for, Nintendo IP, such as our software and characters, and we have been creating and nurturing them together with the history of home video game entertainment.

In order to flexibly deal with the developments of the Internet and social media as well as the changes in the people’s lifestyles, we will start strategic endeavors so that Nintendo can maximize the value of our IP that we have used primarily for our own dedicated game platforms.


Iwata says he doesn't know which Nintendo IP will be used in this new mobile venture, but they aren't ruling out anything.  However, Iwata does sound like he wants to remain focused on a few titles, rather than producing their whole catalog of games: "games on smart devices require ever-evolving services rather than just being a finished product.... People’s attention would only be dispersed if we simply increased the number of the titles we simultaneously released, and we could not expect to expand our business. Accordingly, we will narrow down the titles for development and operation to some extent."

DeNA will also be working with Nintendo to develop a new membership service to replace the now defunct Club Nintendo.
