Nintendo is a pioneer in the video game industry with its innovative hardware platforms and its strong brand identity. With franchises like Mario Kart, Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and Metroid, the company has garnered a massive following among gamers worldwide.
While Nintendo’s games are usually sold at full-price, they have managed to maintain high price stability and earn a significant profit, thanks in large part to their loyal fan base. However, it’s fair to say that without the Pokémon franchise, Nintendo would not be as successful as it is today.
The Pokémon franchise has been a game-changer for Nintendo, catapulting the company to video game heaven. Despite setbacks with products like the N64, the Gamecube, and the Wii U, Nintendo’s handheld division has been the savior of the company’s biggest failures in the console segment, thanks to Pokémon.
Classic Pokémon games like the Yellow Edition kept the Game Boy alive for 12 years, despite being technically obsolete at the time of its release.
The latest installment in the franchise, the ninth generation Pokémon Crimson and Crimson games released in 2022, has also proven to be a terrific box office hit on the Nintendo Switch.
With its global appeal, Pokémon is the most successful media franchise of all time, connecting generations of pocket monster fans across the globe.
Now, the iconic Pokémon classic is available for free on the Nintendo Switch. Fans of the franchise can get their hands on this cult hit at no additional cost with a Nintendo online subscription.
In addition to the main game series, which has produced numerous classics like Pokémon X & Y, Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, and Pokémon Sun and Moon, the spin-offs have also been very popular.
The action-adventure game, Pokémon Legends: Arceus, released in 2022 for the Nintendo Switch, brought a breath of fresh air to the world of pocket monsters. The mobile game Pokémon Go has also been a mass phenomenon, exceeding expectations since its launch in the mid-2010s.
With the Pokémon classic now available for free on the Nintendo Switch, it’s the perfect time for both new and old fans of the franchise to experience the game.
The game has been updated with modern features to enhance the gameplay experience, making it even more enjoyable for gamers. So, what are you waiting for? Get your Nintendo online subscription and catch ’em all!
