Pokémon Blog

A plethora of early Pokémon designs recently surfaced online, courtesy of the Pokémon historians at Helix Chamber. The latest batch offers another look at early and unused Pokémon that include the following (with Helix Chamber’s made-up names):

“Ohmega,” which was a Kaiju-meets-mech a la Mechagodzilla:

“Bloonder,” a sentient, fighting balloon Pokémon:

And “Weirduck,” which Psyduck could have evolved into before transforming into its canonical evolution, Golduck.

A pair nixed monsters called “Guardia” and “Totartle.”

“This is the one we were all very shocked by,” Helix Chamber wrote of Guardia, which resembles a Marowak holding a baby Pokémon. “The common fan theory that Cubone is a baby Kangaskhan came true, in a twisted sort of way; now it seems like they were always meant to be linked together.

Xbox Boss Talks Banjo And Kazooie In Smash Bros Ultimate

My Nintendo News

Kotaku has had the chance to chat with Xbox boss Phil Spencer about the inclusion of Rare’s Banjo and Kazooie in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. The iconic bear and bird will be added as DLC fighters in the Autumn.

Platinum Games Explain Why Bayonetta 3 Wasn’t At E3 2019

My Nintendo News

There was understandable disappointment amongst fans when the Nintendo Direct finished with no sign or mention of Bayonetta 3. Platinum Games have told Video Game Chronicle that they just weren’t looking to reveal all just yet. However, the company reiterated that development on the eagerly anticipated next entry is going very smoothly. Hopefully they will have something to share soon.

Giving updates for everything at E3 isn’t the smartest PR strategy to begin with,” he added. “So just because we’re not showing it here doesn’t mean it’s not going well.”

Asked if the 18 month silence since the game was announced was indicative of the studio’s grand ambitions for the title, Inaba agreed.

“Yes, it’s going to be a high quality title and we’re putting our all into it. That is what you’re seeing [with the silence].”
