Nintendo has sent just three tweets in 2014 from their official Nintendo of America Twitter handle on the status of delays on the PokeBank and PokeTransporter Apps and just four since the service was indefinitely postponed on Dec. 26.
By comparison, Nintendo has sent twice as many tweets about their upcoming Donkey Kong game and the soon to be released “Bravely Default” title. They’ve even communicated more about the Wii U downloadable title “NES Remix” on Twitter than they have in regards to the status of PokeBank.
Their first communication about the services came on January 10, when Nintendo told their followers that they had no new information on the outage.
“More information on the launch of @Pokemon Bank and Poké Transporter will be announced in the future. Thanks for your patience!”
On January 21, Nintendo sent out two tweets telling the world the apps were now available in Japan, but were silent as to when they would be heading to Europe and North America.
“Pokémon Bank has launched in certain Asian countries.”
“Please stay tuned to our social channels for updates on availability in other regions, including North America.”
For some reason, Nintendo continues to keep mum on its continually developing PokeBank and PokeTransporter issue despite outcries from fans. Speculation continues to build for the release of the apps- even the routine maintenance on the Pokemon Global Link website yesterday had some fans pondering the release of the apps- there’s been nothing to support those claims.
