TiMi who makes honor of kings, call of duty mobile, arena of valor.

Uhoh, this is just a Chinese mobile game…

Now let’s see what wins out, reddit’s sinophobia or love for pokemon spin-offs.

Tencent? Ah so a game by the Chinese Communist Party for Chinese consumers and phone data collection. Don’t play this game.

you forgot one:

initials are PU

“Published by Tencent”

FUCK that. Not giving any money to a Chinese government-controlled tech company. Or installing their software on my devices.

Nintendo- “Yeah we’re gonna move away from putting too much focus on mobile. Making high quality games for switch seems to be better for growth and we dont wanna hurt our brands by introducing cheap cashgrabs.”

Pokemon Co.- “Huh?”

Seriously, if you have ever wondered how little creative control Nintendo has over the Pokemon brand, this should prove it. It shouldnt be surprising since the president of the Pokemon co. straight up said that he thought the Switch would be a failure and thought mobile games were the future of gaming.

All that said, I think a Pokemon MOBA is actually a neat idea but this looks low budget and very basic. I wish when companies wish to go after popular trends, they also put money behind it. Now its just “give our license to a Chinese company and let them suck our fans dry.” Free-to-Start already has my alarm bells ringing.

Nintendo has, but it’s limited on console/handheld as a publisher. They leave Pokémon as a brand otherwise with TPC, which like you correctly says, TPC has been very interested on mobile spin-offs. Hell, they are on the market since 2011 with TCG, much before Nintendo even joined it in 2016, which tbf, TPC did it in 2011 and only began again in 2015.

Also, Nintendo didn’t say anything, it wasn’t an official announcement. We only got a good source with Bloomberg.

Yeah, you can tell they aren’t super proud of this when most of the trailer is footage of “Hey, remember how much you like Pokemon?” And then like 10 seconds of actual footage with little explanation about the game.

To be fair, that was 99% speculation on bloomberg’s part. The only thing that they actually got was the guy from DeNA saying “We’re not releasing anything until the next fiscal year”, which is a completely different statement.

mobile games were the future of gaming.

From a business standpoint? Absolutely. I wish people would stop thinking that mobile gaming is a “joke” because to a business, which all gaming companies are first and foremost, mobile gaming is an incredible source of cash.

According to this research article, mobile gaming made $64.4 billion, PC gaming made ~$30 billion and consoles $15 billion *in 2019.

People in charge of these companies aren’t concerned with the perception of games. They care about how much $$$ games bring in. If you see those figures above, mobile gaming is not only the “future” of gaming from a financial standpoint, but it is widely above and beyond PC/Console gaming.

I hate mobile games, but there’s no doubt that companies will continue to push into the mobile market because it’s accessible to almost everyone(everyone has a phone after all) and free to play games bring in $4 out of every $5 the gaming industry earned in 2019(from the article linked above).

this looks low budget

Just like the mainline games.
