What does the future hold for Game Freak? According to Junichi Masuda, the company wants to look into ways to help combine the real world with the virtual world. To achieve this, they plan to pay close attention to the direction of advanced technology like AR, AI, voice recognition, and more. No specific details were given on how this initiative ties into future games.
How about 4K and VR?
Nintendo had already said that they don't have plans for VR right now and for 4K that is a good dream that won't be realized this gen.
I hope they keep these to the mobile games.
Because AR has gone so well for Pokémon Go?
You say this as if Pokémon GO isn't massively popular. And it's in good part due to its AR capabilities. (AR isn't just the thing where you overlay an image on camera footage. It's about anything where the real world is incorporated into the game world, like how you need to walk around in the real world to find Pokémon, need to flip Pokéstops, and how the weather affects Pokémon spawn rates)
The logo is new to me so I first thought Game Freak's a sellout too huh. Why isn't anyone bringing up the creepiness that is all these companies purposely using/sharing 6's in their logos?
...That's a G, not a 6. You can maybe say it looks like a 6, but you said it is purposely a 6, which it's not
Ok realistically speaking, I don't think Game Freak is that good developing tech yet.
First off, their recent 3D Pokemon games have bad graphics where they tend to have slowdown even without 3-D effect and that the textures are just bland.
Secondly, I thought Pokemon Go was already enough to experiment AR based games for them. Also, AR gaming isn't that great and not everyone is into it. Heck even Nintendo themselves stopped supporting that AR based games on the 3DS. Go figure...
And AI? Ok, what games has Game Freak done that incorporates AI? The main games? Not sure about that when there's only like four moves to choose from...
The only thing I can see them work on is voice recognition because they did have some experience with that.
