Yay. I just hope the Wii ones are more like the stadium games than battle revolution though. :yahoo:

Fairly dissapointed that the DS one is just a typing game.

Hopefully it's a spin-off with some kind of plot rather than just a racing game or some other light fare, as the first DS Pokemon game was.

The 3DS would be ideal for a port of Pokemon Snap, particularly with its superior graphics and augmented reality feature. Not only could you photograph Pokemon around the normal game world, but you could hunt them around your house or outside, as well.

This is exciting! I hope with this 3DS title they intend to continue the Mystery Dungeon subseries of the franchise. I would love a pokemon snap sequel as well. It's probably just a spinoff, but I've been enjoying spinoffs more and more over time.

It's offical: New Wii pokemon game confirmed. Now we only need to see if it's that battle sim.

And the Nintendo accessory dude might have been right...and his company might have been getting a license later.

So Pokemon now has practice typing software. This franchise keeps expanding and expanding to new heights, it's amazing what Nintendo, Game Freak, and The Pokemon Company are coming up with. Of course, such a game will never be able to sell as well here.

I'm praying for a Pokemon Snap-esque 3DS game. It would work very well for the software, and we haven't had a game like this in over 11 years.

"Various projects" for the Wii could mean anything. There are already a lot of Pokemon games available for Wii and WiiWare from the fourth generation alone. We'll probably get a sequel to PBR for the fifth generation games/pokemon (which could be the same game as the "Gale of Darkness" esque game we've been speculating over).

I really want a Gale of Darkness/ Colo spinoff. I enjoyed Colo immensely. It was challenging and my kind of game

This times a million. I enjoyed both those games immensely. Here's hoping that's the type of game it is.

Whoring the series out to every possible venue is something its done since it gained mainstream popularity, not really something I'd praise it for.

Yeah, I'm hoping that HAL takes a break from the Ranger series and decides to go with this. Let's hope that this new game doesn't just choose to showcase the 3D gimmick. Think of the limitless possibilities of Augmented reality Pokémon Snap. Honestly, traditional Snap mechanics, combined with AR, and the ability to save these pics on an SD card so I can upload them onto my computer and share them online would really curb my views on how soon I'd get a 3DS.

Really, if its not this, I'd much rather have a new spin-off series.

A lot of people here mentioned a Snap sequel; that's exactly what my brother suggested when I told him they were making a Pokémon game for the 3DS and I think it would be awesome. Snap was the first Pokémon game I ever owned, and I think it would be pretty cool if they remade it for the 3DS.

For the Wii, I definitely hope it's an RPG à la Colosseum/XD, although I'd like it if it dealt with something other than Shadow Pokémon. They haven't done δ-Species in the video games yet; that could be interesting.

The typing game reminds me of the old Mario Teaches Typing game from ages long past. They had it in my elementary school and it taught me to type awesomely. Wish I had a pokemon version back in the day.

Miar said:
Pokémon Typing DS'll never come out here. It's just a game to teach how to type in Western language characters (the ones we use, not so much for them)
It's software designed how to teach Japanese kids to type, period. It's not just teaching them how to type words out in English.

Besides, last I checked, American kids need to learn how to type as well. I see no reason for this game to not make it stateside.

I get the feeling the 3DS one will be a Mystery Dungeon game, if only because that series is still popular.

I wouldn't object to a Pokemon Snap sequel either.
