Pokemon X and Y Pokebank pressure on Nintendo

The Pokemon X and Y Pokebank release date in US and UK is still not live, with many fans wondering what Nintendo are up to. The delay is bad enough, but perhaps the biggest problem for the millions of Pokemon fans is that there has been no communication from Nintendo on the matter.

As we all know with game content delays, communication is key. Especially with the emerging importance of social media threatening to blow up anything that fans are not happy about.

News of the Pokemon X and Y Pokebank release date delay now appears to have been the last straw for many fans, with some surprising feedback we’ve read suggesting that Nintendo cannot be forgiven. We’ve seen the Japanese company being accused of ‘bias’ towards Japanese consumers vs the Western world, while others simply cannot understand why Nintendo are staying completely silent on the matter.

We understand that there’s a big problem preventing Pokebank from going live, but then again it isn’t exactly hard to send out a few official Tweets to calm everydown down.

Just to give you an idea of how fans are feeling, here’s some reaction from Twitter on the delay:

One user has even gone to the length of teasing Pokemon fans by attempting to photoshop the official Pokemon Twitter account:

As you can see, anticipation for the delayed feature is sky high at the moment. Some kind of official clarification from Nintendo would be welcome. We’ll try to reach out to the company and let us know if we hear back.

Are you more angry with Nintendo about the lack of communication, rather than the delay itself now?
