    Nintendo seems to have found a niche in the mobile market, after the successes of titles like Miitomo, Fire Emblem Heroes, and Pokemon Go. Their latest project is to be called PokeLand, which is a toned-down, mobile-styled version of the Pokemon Rumble series. The game is currently in alpha testing, for Japan only, which starts today, and will run until June 9th. It features 134 different Pokemon, along with 52 different levels to explore. There's no word on if PokeLand will come west, at this time.

    Tsk tsk tsk. It's really depressing how much they focus on mobile games nowadays.

    That's a stupidly low amount of Pokémon even for a test release.

    Looking at the screenshots... What the actual fuck? They're not even trying.

    This is probably just another Pokémon company game, not really Nintendo themselves. They've been whoring out Pokémon on mobile for years.

    Well it's like Pokémon Rumble. The screenshots look good for what it's supposed to be, though I wish they would add Gen VII to Pokémon Duel first.

    Well, it looks crap. Pokémon Rumble looked better than this especially even back in the days. 2009. That was ages ago. Oh, how time flies.

    Wow it's like they're trying to make more money or something. Never knew businesses try to make money.

    Doesn't mean it can't be depressing to see.

    Yeah, that's the problem. It's like they're just being lazy and ported it directly. It's an old game. It looked fine to me back then. Well, it's an easy money and Pokémon is a famous franchise, so I'm pretty sure this will sell (paid app or micro-transactions) like hotcakes but will die if not taken cared properly just like Pokémon Go. Not sure if there are still that many players for Pokémon Go, though but that's another story.

    What would they put in the gacha this time? Gardevoir in wedding dress? Easter costume Lopunny?... Actually I think it may work.

    I'm interested, Rumble was loads of fun.
    The 3DS rumble was also pretty fun.

    I hope they don't plan on sticking to such a small number of Pokémon. They could always just reuse the models from Rumble World assuming they're not already doing it.

    It's actually great to see Nintendo focusing more on releasing Nintendo games for non-Nintendo platforms than making them all exclusives.

    I like the way Nintendo is nowadays. :)

    Anyone know where I can download the apk to try it out?

    Thanks.

    Ah, found it via QooApp. Great app to download Japanese Android Play Store games and whatnot.

    Give it a try, you lot, if you want. ;)
