Isn't PMD just not-Shinen The Wanderer. Like it's a specific type of roguelike and not really like Diablo at all or something
And also probably not touched by Nintendo at all since its made by ChunSoft
I'm aware that Diablo has evolved (no pun intended) to be a "different" rougelike game to the point where hardcore gamers (hardcore diablo fans) don't even acknowledge that if you strip it down, at its core, Diablo is indeed a roguelike game.
I am also aware that PMD is way different from Diablo but since it is a roguelike game it can be made to emulate diablo in certain aspects.
Nintendo publishes, and while publishers dont make games they can make suggestions and Pokemon is owned by Nintendo so yeah it has authority over it.
From what I've seen of PMD, it seems as though Chunsoft has been taking it in a progressively more... juvenile-accessible direction.
I'd like to see a return to the Rescue Team and Explorers kinds of influence on the series, personally, though I feel as though it'd be better suited to the 3DS than the Wii U myself.
I know that, I said it would be cool if they emulated some of the stuff that makes Diablo well Diablo but not to emulate it completely because it wouldn't work.
Gates to infinity watered down the story a lot and changed a few gameplay mechanics but if they bring back the old story writing and mechanics it would be great, the only reason I would want it to be on the Wii U for online but after seeing what X/Y and animal crossing accomplished a new PMD with a focus on online can function on the 3ds. C'mon chun soft I want to see more of that imaginative writing you guys are known for.
Extremely mediocrely for Pokémon spin-offs(Yes, vgchartz are the devil etc. I don't have the official sales figures, sorry). However, it was intended for really young audiences, so it is not really surprising.
their B/W concept artwork are any indication. *
*Sure, Great Detective Pikachu isn't being developed by GF, but it is a spin-off in gameplay sense as well as story sense.
Of course, it could have been much better if we had proper difficulty settings, but it would be just as complicated as blowing a flute on the top of a mountain at the center of a Japanese region to summon the Creator.
Seems like Sega is agreeing with you in that department. But then again, Sega.
Edit: Nevermind, I just read the article. False alarm.

For those waiting for a new Nintendo Direct, I have a parody Direct video that I randomly came across to ease your hunger for new game announcements
This guy's Iwata impression is spot-on! His body movements, accent, and speech pattern is near identical to the real Iwata, even coming bonus with the phrase "Please understand!". I laughed through the whole thing. To me, one outstanding moment is when he was talking about Titanfall and Infamous Second Son, and how they suck because they were made by western developers. Reminds me of one user on this site haha I don't remember his/her name though

I mean, if that's the only thing you have, go ahead and use it. But if you have another device to watch Youtube or Netflix on, just use that instead. Spare yourself from the 3DS' horrible video quality.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical freeze japanese sales damaged by heavy snow?
The weather is bad
The economy is bad
Nobody buys video games anymore
The industry is going to crash
Everybody is suddenly buying digital.
only on wii u will you get these excuses
...Or it could just be the bad weathers are really bad. These ain't no Monster Hunter, main Pokémon, or DQ titles.

...Did anyone honestly expect DKCTF to really be a big seller though? I mean, it's essentially recycling DKCR's ideas, and is just another game on the long list of platformers on the Wii U. It certainly didn't have all that much hype, so its sales (or lack thereof) don't really seem like that big of a surprise.
One of the writers for the PotW, and apparently the keeper of sanity and order.
I make no claim of being perfect or always right. Take everything I say with a grain of salt.
I can't tell if there was hype. GAF was always talking about it, and how Cranky Kong was gonna make it sell millions. I don't know if they were honestly excited for the game, or just making fun of Nintendo. Probably both.
However, this is for Japan. Let's wait until we have NPD reports. DKCR sold 3M and 1.6M in the US and UK, respectively. While in Japan, it sold only slightly over 1M.
