This Is What Pokémon Looks Like As A Gorgeous Open-World Game

We've already seen what Mario looks like running around projects created with Unreal Engine 4. Now it's another Nintendo IP's turn. This video shows off what the original three starter Pokémon look like beyond the limits of Nintendo's handhelds, complete with Charmander spewing fire.

The video below is from YouTube's CryZENx. You can watch Charmander breathe fire and run along the sprawling green fields, filled with trees and a pack of wandering deer.

An open-world Pokémon has remained high on fans' wishlists for years, and this tease makes the possibility all the more enticing. But would Nintendo ever go for it to this degree?

Pokémon Shuffle Update Adds New Content

Nintendo's free-to-play match-three 3DS puzzler gets an update that will make pokémon easier to catch among other changes. Here's the list of what to expect.

  • The new Super Catch Power consumable can be used to greatly increase the odds that you will successfully catch a pokémon at the end of a level. 
  • The special Victini's stage will appear every Saturday and Sunday for a limited time and grant extra experience points.
  • Heart usage has changed so that automatically regenerating hearts will be used first instead of ones earned through other methods.
  • Players will be able to look at a pokémon's stats immediately upon catching them.
  • Combo records are shown onscreen for a longer span of time.

Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon Explores Winter 2015 Release

 

Nintendo has announced another first-party title coming to its family of handhelds this year. Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon will follow in the footsteps of its predecessor (Pokémon Mystery Dungeon), which has sold over 13 million copies.

The title features a wide variety of Pokémon, as players explore randomly generated dungeons. You can read more about the series in our review of the original.

And if it’s more Mystery Dungeon you’re after right now, Atlus recently released Etrian Mystery Dungeon. We have a review of that, too.

 

Our Take
While we didn’t love the first Pokémon Mystery Dungeon game, there’s hope that lessons were learned. I suspect we’ll get a chance to see it at E3 to know for sure.

The piece also includes realistic renditions of Tentacruel, Jellicent, Frillish, Sharpedo, and Omastar, who is the ultimate evolved form of Omanyte, who is born from the helix fossil. The helix fossil rose to prominence recently with the TwitchPlaysPokemon phenomenon.

For more impressive work from Palmer click the links to see Kyurem, Raikou, Abomasnow, and Mr. Mime, Gyarados and Rayquaza, Lugia and Tyrantrum, Giratina, Feraligatr, and Meganium. RJ Palmer has been creating these impressive realistic Pokémon for quite some time. You can see more of his collection on his blog, as well as his DeviantArt page.
