The Pokémon Company has revealed in a press release that it needed to delay the announcement of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, wishing “to be sensitive to major world events… and those impacted.” The pre-scheduled Pokémon Day announcement couldn’t be modified however as an alternative, the promotion of the game’s announcement was stored to a minimal “out of respect.”
While Russia’s massively unpopular battle with Ukraine rages, saying new video games can come throughout as insensitive and that is one thing Nintendo and The Pokémon Company is aware of. Unfortunately, the timing of the pre-scheduled Pokémon Presents video revealing Pokémon Scarlet and Violet couldn’t be modified or delayed.
In a brand new assertion launched at present, The Pokémon Company acknowledged that the reveal was “unable to be postponed.” Instead, “out of respect to [its] global audiences,” The Pokémon Company “decided to significantly reduce the promotion of the event.” The full assertion could be learn beneath:
“We wish to be sensitive to major world events happening at this time and those impacted. A pre-scheduled Pokémon Presents was unable to be postponed. Out of respect to our global audiences, we decided to significantly reduce the promotion of the event while giving fans the option to tune if they chose to do so.”
Eventually, the ninth technology of mainline Pokémon video games would have been introduced, however with the continued disaster in Ukraine, it’s good to know that huge game studios all over the world are conscious of the state of affairs and prepared to delay bulletins of video games at the same time as huge as the brand new presumably Spain-based Pokémon out of respect for these affected.
