Tokyoites pocket Pokemon en masse

Tokyoites pocket Pokemon en masse

Fans stand in line for five hours to buy new Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl; game launched at a gala stage show in Shinjuku.

By Walt Wyman, GameSpot
Posted Sep 28, 2006 10:59 am PT

There is no shortage of popular Nintendo DS titles on the Japanese market, and today the system just got two more. Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl launched today, and again Tokyo saw fans lining up in scenes reminiscent of the Final Fantasy III DS launch last month. (The games will hit the US in mid-November.)

According to Japanese news site ITmedia, around 1,000 people queued up for the event and a chance to buy the latest installments in the Pokemon franchise and the Pokemon Center Original Nintendo DS Lite Dialga/Palkia Edition. Some fans had been in line since five o'clock the previous day. Even with the entire resources of the store devoted to selling the games, the queue time ballooned to five hours as the store filled to capacity.

A star-studded stage event was also held to celebrate the launch in the Shinjuku Takashimaya department store. The show featured the comic stylings of the comedic trio Roba-to and Shoko "Shocotan" Nakagawa--one of Japan's top geek pin-ups. The event showcased the game's Wi-Fi features with a celebrity Pokemon battle.

Well, this was to be expected. The day has come. Pokemon is here...uh... there... Man, I'd hate to be a PSP today.

never was a Pokemon fan, but I find it fascinated that people would wait for hours to get it.

I'm buying Pearl first o.o then Diamond the week after....Diamonds are over-rated >.>;;

But I wonder how long it will until they're released in EU...I hope it isn't too long...I hate having to wait extra for stuff, it's boring.
I'm starting to wonder if maybe...I live in the wrong country <.<;;

Everyone outside of Japan, USA and Canada live in the wrong country as far as game releases go. The upside is that when the products finally hit PAL shores all the bugs and all the crap shit are ironed out (unless its microsoft, they just suck balls with glitches and such) as Oceania has had very little cases of any problems with nintendo or sony items when compared to microsoft, and the microsoft releases have been relatively closer to the NTSC releases.

The way i see it, this us plenty of time to read reviews, get demos and pirate shit to actually play the game fully and not just see fmvs before you get dodgy controller settings and fagtastic storyine (thank you very much monster hunter shit, saved me $99.95 on your sucky ass!) to get an accurate feel if we want the game as consumers. (at least in Oceania with the markup)
