Despite being huge competitors of Nintendo, it looks like Android and iOS will be receiving one of the company’s most beloved IPs – Pokémon. According to a recent announcement from the Pokémon company, it will be releasing Pokémon Say Tap for Android and iOS devices this summer. The game will be based on the Pokémon Black and White TV series and will rely on carefully timed button presses to Pokémon cards that will most likely be synced to music. So far it sounds like some sort of rhythm game.
While it’s not the regular Pokémon game (playable on the NDS or on smartphones with emulators), it’s still a step up from keeping the game exclusive to Nintendo devices. This could be a sign of Nintendo losing faith in its own NDS since the company has previously mentioned that it wasn’t interested in creating “dollar games” that had no value, or Nintendo is just trying to cash in with the franchise by bringing it to two of the most popular mobile platforms available. It’ll be interesting to see if this is the start of a new trend at Nintendo. What other Nintendo games would you like to see on iOS/Android?
