Pokemon To Release New Game
VIZ Media is releasing a DVD of Pokemon. It is called Pokemon – Zoroark: Master of Illusion and is being re-released on the 20th of September. The movie is about Ash and his friends attending the world cup of Pokemon masters. It has a rating for everyone, which will please many fans of the series. You can find the official press release down below.
Pokemon has found success for over 10 years. This appears to be unheard of for many, but fans have stuck beside it for years. The series has seen books; games and cards come out since it has come into pop culture. The game will likely sell it well and has come out in time before the holiday season. Pokemon is hoping to bank on that season after a few cooler years in sales.
What do you think about Pokemon trying to create a new wave of success? I think that they should focus on their new website more than a new movie. Most of those who grew up with it are now adults and I doubt they will watch it. As for today’s kids, I am not sure how many watch cartoons thus I don’t know if they even know what it is. I think that they need to do some kind of work for the brand, but they don’t need to overload their brand with movies that might not succeed so well.
