Nintendo is on the hunt for a violent Pokémon-based video game developed by a Reddit user.
The company is deleting all the videos of the game that have been published in recent days on social networks and on YouTube, which is why it has gone viral. The game is a Pokémon first-person shooter created with the Unreal Engine, in which the dynamic is to shoot the Pokémon to kill them violently.

The creator of the game laments in a Reddit post that Nintendo has treated his creation as if it were a commercial work and not a simple fan made. The user assures that he did not reuse any code from the game and that he was only inspired by its designs.
Pokémon is one of the most popular franchises that exist for Nintendo consoles. The next big title expected is Pokémon Legends: Arceus, an open world game in the style The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
According to the progress of the game shared so far, the new title maintains the idiosyncrasies of the franchise, that is, capture dozens of pokémon and train them to compete with other trainers. In this case, and unlike other more urban titles, you’ll have to do it while traveling through a natural world, full of wild Pokémon.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus will cost $59.99 plus tax and will arrive on January 25, though some streamers acquaintances have already had access to a preview of the game.
