Yeah I mean like, obviously Nintendo still cares about it? To some degree, with all the Smash stuff with it at least. Then again, they have a lot of like more or less dead IPs that they still include in stuff... (lookin at you Captain Falcon) I mean like maybe they should funnel out some new games for older dead Ips instead of pumping out stuff for their extremely beloved ones. Or, at least that's how I feel? idk.
It's quite good so far, I played about 6 hours today. I went with Chespin for myself and Pikachu for my partner. It's a little... weird though. You don't pick the Hero's gender, like it's vague throughout but you DO pick your partner's gender??? Like I have a female Pikachu partner with the heart shaped tail and all but when I tried to do that with my hero there was no way to do it????
It's immensely better than Gates to Infinity already, but that really isn't saying much.
