Pokédex for iOS now available in Japanese iTunes App Store

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

Nintendo may be known for being reluctant to expand its game franchises onto non-Nintendo devices, todays news shows that it's not completely adverse to it. And today's news is that The Pokémon Company, a Nintendo subsidiary, released a new Pokémon app, 'Pokédex for iOS', onto the Japanese App Store.

Developed by Pokémon developer GameFreak and Creatures Inc. (another subsidiary of Nintendo), the app, which is an encyclopedia filled with info on 150 Pokémon (with more Pokémon being attained through add-on packs) is priced at ¥170 (roughly $2.10), with the add-ons costing ¥500 (about $6.15). This makes the app the very first paid Nintendo product available for the iOS platform.

While Pokédex for iOS may be the first paid Nintendo game on the platform, it is, in fact, not the first Nintendo app to be released for it. That honor goes to another Pokémon game called Pokémon Say Tap?, a free title that was released for iOS and Android last year.

Nintendo may have released two games on the iOS platform, but do you think they will continue to do so? And if they do, will bring their other franchises to the platform, or stick to Pokémon? Let us know what you think Nintendo will probably do and what you think Nintendo ought to do in the comment box below.
