Pokémon Masters landed on the Play Store in a rough spot last year (August 2019), thanks to an awful grind, horrible monetization, and a drought of content. Seriously, one of the producers even apologized publicly for releasing such a boring game. While the monetization in the title hasn't changed in the last year, it would seem the gameplay has received frequent improvements, and now that we are on the precipice of the game's first anniversary, DeNA has announced that Pokémon Masters will soon evolve into Pokémon Masters EX.
Back in May, we heard the first rumblings about a new Pokémon game coming to Android from the likes of DeNA, and in June it was revealed to the world that Pokémon Masters would be coming to Android this summer. Since June The Pokémon Company has been slowly trickling out new trailers to keep fans interested in the upcoming release, and as of last night, Pokémon Masters popped up on the Play Store as a pre-registration listing.
In May we learned from a DeNA financial briefing that the developer had teamed up with The Pokémon Company to release a smartphone game based on the Pokémon license, and today the studio has unveiled new details about this upcoming title. It's called Pokémon Masters, and apparently, it's a 3v3 real-time strategy battle game that will land on Android sometime this summer.
