Considering the 25th anniversary is huge, it's not surprising to see them use a celebrity to represent it but I do agree they could have had someone different. Anyways, I have merged your thread over to this thread since they are talking about the same topic.

i... to be honest, i'm still not quite sure what to make of this, still. i know the more practical reason is that TPC figured they'd just need celebrity representation so they can get more potential new players and therefore more money ,but...

That's a very weird take on G̶a̶r̶d̶e̶- i mean, Katy Perry.

In all seriousness though, really, go look up some of the lyrics for "California Gurls" and decide whether it's a good idea for her to collab with a company who is known to censor the word "jerk" in their games.

Whatever it is that happens, they're not gonna let her do some song that's way too far removed from their desired public image

And despite Nintendo trying to project a "family friendly" image, it's not like they haven't published games that aren't ultra kiddy or made use of certain sorts of characters before.

Nevermind that half the fanbase is old fucks like me anyway

True, true.

Gosh, I hate Nintendo, so much.

If Game Freak and the Pokemon Company decide to release a pair of games for the anniversary, I hope to God that it won't be a rushed mess of missed potential like Sword&Shield

I'm laughing so much, what the- that's deep af, Katy Perry suddenly saying she deeply relates to Pikachu, and mentioning Chained To The Rhythm in the same breath. LOL

This is... interesting.

I don't hate it, I just don't know why it's happening.

I seem to be the only one who never got out of my Katy Perry phase. This collaboration is completely bizarre in its entirety, which is why I love it. I'm so excited!

Good for her. I mean, I don't get it, but whatever makes 'em happy. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yeah, it's a little weird to hire the lady who is known for making very risque songs to celebrate the anniversary of your franchise made for children

Risqué? No offense to her but Katy is about as vanilla as they come. She has some crude songs with single entendres that frankly sound like they come more from schoolyard dirty jokes than anything which I'm sure she could pass over for this sort of event. The rest of her discography could easily fit on ABC Family. This is someone who's collaborated with Sesame Street previously.
