Hot on the heels of the ill-fated Pokemon Uranium comes another fan project – Pokemon Prism. I don’t expect Nintendo to let this stick around, but we may as well take a look at it anyway.
Similar to Uranium, Prism has been in the works for a long time (eight years!) and aims to combine classic Pokemon gameplay with a bunch of new features.
Using the retro graphics of Gold/Silver (objectively the greatest games in the series), you’ll experience a brand new story set in the region of Naljo.
With over 200 Pokemon – including ‘mon from modern games – as well as a hefty 20 gym badges to earn, trainer customisation, 60 FPS gameplay, and the ability to actually play as your lil’ pocket creatures, Prism looks like a cool fake addition to the franchise.
Prism is scheduled for release on PC in December, but you can see it being played by the public right now on Twitch through the TwitchPlaysPokemon channel.
If that doesn’t interest you at all, you can can check out the first trailer below.
We all know Nintendo are about as likely to let this continue as Gaben is to show up at your house with a copy of Half-Life 3.
It’ll probably be a case of grab it before it’s gone – and I imagine the team behind it know that.
