Konami is currently working on a very interesting title called Photo Showdown. At a first look your head will be skipping a step and just think: Another Pokemon game. The point of the game is to collect monsters, fight with them in tournaments, and trade and fight with them against your friends. Overall a pretty standard layout for the gameplay, as it seems at this very moment it will loose alot of interest becuase of a lacking RPG feel. Ofcourse this is only what I can say from the first few trailers that out on the internet at the moment, so this may be different or change.
What makes the game standout then? As you may have noticed, the word Photo starts the name of the game, and with good reason. To capture monsters you run around in tall grass for random encounters, instead you use the DSi camera to take photos, dependingon the photo it will generate a monster for you. How many monsters and how exactly the photos colors and such will matter, we dont know.
Well here is a few videos to show you what the game is about, and it will be interesting to see how this game turns out. ^^
