Default Pokemon XD in Europe Before Christmas!

Pokemon XD in Europe Before Christmas!
-05/28/05-


Jim Merrick, Senior Director of European Marketing, was interviewed by GamesIndustry.biz on the topic of Nintendo's plans in Europe. In the interview, Jim Merrick revealed that Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness, will be released in Europe in time for Christmas:

Interview
Jim Merrick: You know, we've got two really strong titles. Right now we're enjoying the success still of Resident Evil, which has been very good for us on GameCube, and we've got good strong support from licensees continuing throughout the year.

Then coming in the holiday season, both Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness, which will be huge on GameCube, and of course, Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. That's going to be a huge game for us.

GI Interview: And we're definitely going to see both of those this side of Christmas in Europe?

Jim Merrick: You've got it. One of the strategies that Nintendo is really aggressively employing is the more global strategy - it's not to always assume that Europe is last, that Europe is months or years late on getting product. It's a difficult thing to accomplish. We think that people don't understand that adding seven languages to Animal Crossing does delay the game a bit... But that said, we are not going to be two years late, as we were with Animal Crossing on GameCube, on any other products.

Even last year, Zelda: Minish Cap launched first in Europe - before Japan, before the USA. We're doing that increasingly, looking at where the best opportunities in the market are globally, not the assumption that it'll be Japan, then US, then Europe.

And you know, from a practical standpoint, Europe is the only market that's growing. Year on year we have phenomenal growth in Europe, and there's tremendous potential here. Er, there. We're here. You know what I mean! [laughs]

Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness, will be released in the US in October 2005.

So, what is Pokemon XD anyway? I have not been in the pokemon forums for a while. This looked like a good site, so I chose to start posting regularly here. It is a very infromant and popular site!

It's like the RPG mode in Pokemon Colosseum, if you're familiar with that. This page should give you a good idea on what it's about: http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/pokemonxd.html

I think that they should stop trying to help Europes market grow by giving it some good games first. Soon a lot of people are going to byuy all their games from companies that are based in the US
