And out of nowhere, right before releasing Fire Emblem Heroes, Nintendo also released Pokemon Duel. It was called Pokemon Co-master in Japan, and apparently didn’t even warrant Nintendo announcing it at all. I get that it’s The Pokemon Company releasing it, but they’re a subsidiary of Nintendo so… I dunno, seems a bit odd that it would get NO buzz.
I’m not really far into this yet but whatever. This is just an impressions post. I don’t think this kind of game really warrants a full-on review. Let’s go!
Mobile games just tend to not be good. I’ve been searching long and hard for good mobile games, and the only ones that end up being acceptable tend to be digital versions of already-good board games.
So here comes Nintendo in the mobile scene. I haven’t played Super Mario Run yet because it’s not out on Android (and not compatible on my iPod), but they have given a big spotlight to Fire Emblem Heroes. Before the announcement I joked that they’d make it a Gacha game with permadeath. I guess I was close enough, since it is a Gacha game.
So I thought I’d give my impressions about the game. Not really a review, not sure a game like this is “reviewable”. Let’s do this and see if this finally provides a good mobile gaming experience.
(this is not the last mobile game I will talk about, as I keep searching for any that are actually good)
