Pokemon Platinum dev not keen on Wii title

Posted on March 23, 2009 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii

Wii owners craving a helping of a true Pokemon RPG experience on the system are probably going to have to wait awhile. Pokemon Company/GAME FREAK Board Director Junichi Masuda does not seem to be too keen on creating a title for Wii.

“No, we are not thinking of going into development for the Wii because we feel the core idea of Pokemon, communicating and trading with friends and other trainers, is best represented by being able to go anywhere and bring the system with you. This core concept of Pokemon is tied very closely to the portable system…Yes I believe there is a potential that a home console might have a match for our Pokemon concept, but as I said the basic concept is that you trade, you communicate, you want to remain mobile. If that challenge is met by the home console, then we would consider development, but at this point the portable system is the best match for the Pokemon games.”
