Last night Nintendo made a couple of announcements which includes a new Pokemon game. The new game is called ‘Pokemon Quest’ and will be free to play. The game was released for Nintendo switch and is finally making its way to iOS.
According to Polygon, “The action game takes place in a world called Tumblecube Island, where voxel-style Pokémon roam for treasure, food and friendly fights. There are base camps that players can customize and build, which help them attract new Pokémon to add to their team.”
The odd feature of the game is that the users don’t have any control over their Pokemon during a battle. This is something different from the traditional Pokemon games that we know about.
Polygon describes, “From there, trainers take a set of three monsters to battle, albeit not using the familiar turn-based combat of other Pokémon RPGs. Instead, Pokémon Quest limits players’ control of their Pokémon to tapping attack meters once they’re full. Otherwise, the Pokémon go at it on their own.”
Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are also coming to iOS. The game will integrate with the Pokémon Go. The players could catch the “pocket monsters” on their iOS device and transfer them to their Nintendo Switch to experience a “classical Pokemon experience.”
So, this year iOS devices will have two new Pokemon based games. The Pokemon Quest is free to play but it will contain in-game purchases (micro-transactions) which will range between $4.99 and $17.99. The Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go Eevee! will be released for iOS on 16th of November.
