Background of game development and history of hits

Pokémon prehistory

There have been hobbies/plays for collecting and nurturing.1971/から1972/"Kamen Rider snack"ofKamen Rider card Ofコ レ ク シ ョ ンThere is a boom.

From 1988 to 1993Lotteof"Surprised man"Choco" became an explosive boom with the collection of stickers for the 10th generation Angel Devil series.ShogakukanIs our own magazine "Monthly Korokoro Comic], [Learning magazines by grade』And large-scale media mix strategy, including anime, was supporting this boom. On this route, built-in/competitive toysFour wheel drive miniAnd collection/competitive toysBarcode butler, And even boost the Pokemon boom.

In 1989, the creator of PokemonTajiriBut"Game freakWas established, and the company's first game work "Quinti"NamcoReleased from. In the same year, from NintendoGame boy (GB) released. Due to the characteristics of mobile devices, Game Boy was initially seen as a model for puzzles and action games, and many such games were actually released, but TajiriSquareRPG ofMakai Tower Sa・GaAfter seeing the success of ", I realized that I could pursue fields that are not actionable even with mobile devices.[9].

Tajiri especially focused on the communication function of Game Boy, and got the idea of ​​a game with the concept of the verb "to exchange". Also Tajiri saysUltra seven』Is also a fan, inspired by the capsule monster of the same work, "Capsule monsterI wrote the RPG proposal.

"Capsule monster" planned by TajiriCapsule toyA monster that entered a case likecommunication cableWas to come and go. Tajiri brought this plan to Nintendo, and Nintendo decided to support the development cost. Later, the name of "Capsule Monster" isTrademarkIt was changed to "Pokemon (abbreviated as "Pokemon")" because, for example, it could not be used in the product name due to the problem. Tajiri loves the word nostalgic capsules and gives up reluctantly[10].

development of

It took a long time for Pokémon to develop, because the production team lacked RPG development experience and could not find the motivation to "exchange", which is the most important factor in the game. Meanwhile, the development of Pokemon was often interrupted due to reasons such as developing other games to make up for the lack of funds. By 1995, "MOTHER"and"MOTHER2 Gig's CounterattackThe company that producedApeFrom new companyCreaturesBecame president ofTsunekazu Ishihara(Pokemon Co., Ltd. President) came to play a role in directing the whole. 『MOTHER series』Is also the RPG that Tajiri referred to in making Pokemon, and there are many similarities for that reason (RPG is a rare modern world view at that time and the setting of the hero). In addition, he signed a development consignment contract with Game Freak, and became a catalyst for Ishihara to propose various projects to Nintendo as a producer. Nintendo, which had been supporting the development from the beginning, persistently waited for the completion of the product.

The Game Freak production team had a policy to thoroughly play the elements of “collect, nurture, play, exchange” that had not been paid attention at the time, and utilized the communication function of Game Boy to I have to communicate withPokemon picture bookIs not completed”, and “(although it is not compulsory) you can play against your friends with your own Pokemon” is to support that policy.

Each play data is given an individual ID (numerical value) and the name of the main character, and it also has a specification that acts as a "parent ID" for the possessed Pokemon and further individualizes each Pokemon. Initially, it was a specification that the Pokemon that appears in each software differs depending on the player ID, but since it became too complicated, a method of selling in two types was adopted. Also, by switching to a specification with a large-capacity backup memory compared to the mainstream at the time, it became possible to save all 1 types of Pokemon. The idea of ​​"dividing the software into two types" and "adopting a large-capacity cartridge" is Nintendo'sShigeru MiyamotoIs the plan[11].

Originally planned to be released from the fall of 1995 at the end of the year[Annotation 5],debugAfter being delayed on February 1996, 2[11][12]Six years after the start of development, "Pokemon Red/Green" is on sale. The color variation comes from the colors of Mario and Luigi's clothes, and the blue that will be released later comes from the color of the two "tie"[13].


In 1996, not only Game Boy,Portable game consoleThe market was stagnant.Game gearSubsequent models that are capable of color expression are almost out of service,Video gamesIs labeled "Next Generation"PlayStation,Sega SaturnGame Boy, which has been released for the past seven years, was considered obsolete. In fact, there were only 7 titles of game software planned for release at Game Boy right after the release of "Pokemon".

Many RPG-only games have already been released in the market, and "Pokemon" released by Game Boy, which was a "past model", did not have much expectation and missed the year-end sales season.[11].. However, the game elements of “collect, nurture, play, and exchange” gradually gained the support of users, and word-of-mouth communication between users led to an explosive hit. As a result, Pokemon recorded a huge hit that exceeded expectations and expectations of the production side. The number of sales in Japan for "Red, Green, Blue" for Game Boy is finally 1023 million[14].

Changes in the market "after Pokemon"

Since the launch of Pokemon, the Game Boy marketconsumerThe game market itself has changed.

Subsequent game software from other makers also incorporates the elements of "collect, train, compete, exchange" and releases several versions at the same time. Nintendo himself put a lot of effort into developing such games, and there were times when he switched to the "Pokemon belief" lineup. However, regarding the former, it was reminded that there is a difference in the number of units sold by each company, and ultimately the product strength of game software determines the selling power.

After the start of the anime broadcast, it gained female fans and attracted females to boy-centered Game Boy users.Shojo manga magazine "ChaoIt was also around this time that comicalization in 』began.Also, you can now select the main character of a girl from "Crystal".Since then, the number of female users has increased in Nintendo's mobile game segment.
