Pokémon UNITE is another title that has been very popular for many years in the world of small, sweet creatures. Pokemon is not a creation of the last few years. Of course, their phenomenon has been going on since 1996. However, it must be acknowledged that Pokemon GO, a mobile game with an AR interface, has been experiencing a kind of renaissance since its launch. Each new headline that comes out recently has its own fan base and sells well. Some time ago we played Pokemon Sword & Shield with bonus DLC and recently got stuck on great graphics in Pokemon Snap. Not surprisingly, in the rage of interest in the titles of this universe, another game was created about Japanese creatures. This time a MOBA.
If you don’t know what the MOBA genre is, of course I’m in a hurry to explain. MOBA is a multiplayer online battlefield. This is a sub-genre of real-time strategy games, but a style of play with a limited number of players. The term was first used in connection with the League of Legends, and the first game of its kind was a modification of the very popular StarCraft game Aeon of Strife. A new version of Pokemon will soon be added to the long list of such games.
Pokémon UNITE is a new game for Nintendo Switch, Android and iOS.
This headline was announced that year, so it’s not big news. Probably Pokemon fans were waiting for him with shortness of breath. Following the success of previous titles, the market hopes that Unite will also attract Pokemon fans in front of consoles and mobile device screens. The exact release date of the new Pokemon appeared recently. There will be many strategic elements in this game. He promises to be a treat for fans of RTS, strategy and MOBA games. The upcoming game will definitely return to classes like League of Legends and Dota 2. To be honest, this interests me even more.
Pokémon UNITE will also offer a cross-game function that will provide multiplatforma entertainment.
This can be a really interesting functionality. Thanks to it, people using the Nintendo Switch console will be able to compete with iOS and Android users. This means that if you want to play Unite, you don’t need a Nintendo console. In addition, if you have a console at home, the problem of playing with family members will be solved: one child will find a place on the console, another on a smartphone, and even parents. Of course, if you don’t have one yet, no one can buy a Nintendo Switch. The console offers many other fantastic and interesting titles with incredible fairy tale graphics. Some of them are from the Pokemon universe, such as Sword & Shield, Let’s Go Pikachu, Let’s Go Eevee or Pokemon Snap.
Pokémon UNITE will debut in July this year within a month.
Of course, the title will also go to the Apple App Store and Google Play repositories. However, it will happen as soon as possible in September this year. This means that there will be no simultaneous release on all platforms. There is one more piece of information that will delight all fans of the Pokemon universe. It turned out that this title will be free. Of course, in this case, you can expect micro-payments, but I know very well that they are a choice, not a necessity. Without them, many things take longer and are more difficult to achieve. Playing for free is therefore for the patient and those who can spend a lot of time on it. Micropayments must be made through the internal Aeos “currency”. With virtual coins, we can get extras like elements, transitions, and graphic elements.
It seems that micro-payments at Pokémon UNITE should not affect your winnings.
The mechanics of this game are not intended to be too complicated. In the 5v5 game, we will try to beat our opponents by scoring as many points as possible at a certain time. You can watch the video showing the game in more detail. I think watching it will bring you closer to what happened in the new Pokemon game than any number of words. After all, you have to play Pokemon to love them – and since they are offered for free, even more so. Personally, I am looking forward to this title. I hope it will be as exciting as previous productions in the universe and provide the same amount of fun and entertainment. For now, we can only discuss this until the game hits the market.
