Nic interviewed by BisaCast regarding Nnooo’s thoughts on a Pokémon MMO

Monday, May 24th, 2010

Last week Nic was interviewed by the great team at BisaCast, a German language podcast about all things Pokémon. The following is an excerpt from their website you can also click here to visit their site.

Information for our international listeners: Since the BisaCast is created for a German audience, the introduction will be in German. The main part will be in English. So if you don’t want to listen to German waffle fast-foward to 1:50 for the interview.

Im Mai 2008 erregte das australische Entwicklerstudio nnooomit der Patentierung eines Pokémon Online-Rollenspieles großes Aufsehen. Zwar ist bis heute das Pokémon MMO nur eine Ideensammlung auf Papier, jedoch haben wir uns dazu entschlossen bei nnooo nachzufragen, wie die Ideen aussehen.

Unser technischer Support Gerjet hat sich mit dem Chef von nnooo, Nic Wattzusammengesetzt und über die Möglichkeiten eines Pokémon MMO philosophiert. Was im Interview alles für Details verraten wurden, könnt ihr in diesem BisaCast-Special hören. Wie ihr sicherlich verstehen könnt, ist das gesamte Interview nur auf Englisch erhältlich. Trotzdem wünschen wir euch viel Spaß damit.
