    The Pokemon Company Japan has just announced a new, unexpected Pokemon game; a board game-like Free to Play experience. It will be releasing on Android and iOS in Japan in Spring 2016. The trailer doesn't reveal much, only that there will be "Pokemon figures" that you must collect. There is no word yet about a western release.

    IIRC this game will be free, loaded with micro-transactions of course.

    Isn't it just the Pokemon Company doing that? Pokemon Go was announced quite a while ago and there have been official Pokedex apps as well IIRC.

    no idea what xiangqi is, but it certainly doesnt look like chess or shogi.
    tbh, it looks much more like checkers.

    Pokemon is like Halo for nintendo. If they release it on a smartphone then why the fuck do I still own a 3DS?
    ...
    Nintendo can't be that stupid.

    I am starting to wonder if the NX is actually the Nintendo Xell. Nintendo Xell a next gen handheld and smartphone hybrid!

    Great more crappy "so-called" games that I can play on my mobile, instead of playing them on my Wii U!!! :toot:

    I know Nintendo is a little behind the times, but surely they have learnt from other companies like EA ...on not what to do ...right??

    Well this looks like some virtual Pokemon amiibo battle card type game to me??
    I'm guessing you get to choose from 3 Pokemon to battle with, if you want more Pokemon ...you gonna need to pay for each one!!!
