Here is the first look of the Map View of the campaign trail.
In Polimon, there’s more than just battling. Players can travel across the country gaining supporters by visiting cities and holding events. There are several different phases leading up to election day with each phase having different objectives. Just a hint that the strategy extends well beyond the battle mode.
Last week we revealed the first Polimon characters. This week we are unveiling the first gameplay screen shots!
These initial gameplay screen shots show an example of a multi-character battle. In Polimon, it’s not only just politicians battling each other 1v1, but their supporters can join in the battle as well.
These screen shots introduce two types of Polimon. Candidate Polimon and Supporter Polimon.
Candidate Polimon are well-known politicians who have been a Presidential candidate before or they’re politicians who are likely to run for President in the near future. Candidate Polimon are playable characters in the game.
Supporter Polimon represent demographic groups that tend to support particular politicians or interests. Throughout the game, your main Candidate Polimon will try to “capture” various Supporter to join your campaign. Some Supporter Polimon will be easier to capture than others.
Once a Supporter Polimon joins your campaign, you can use them in a Polimon battle and you’ll be able to have a multi-character battle like the ones seen in the above screen shots.
These are the first Polimon Characters to be revealed.
Donald Trump is an obvious choice, he’s the current President of the United States and leader of the Republican Party.
Marco Rubio is currently a US Senator from Florida and a former Presidential candidate. Rubio is considered a rising star in the GOP. He most likely will not run a primary challenge against Trump in 2020, but it’s very likely Rubio will run in 2024.
Hilary Clinton, former First Lady, former US Senator, former Secretary of State, and former Presidential Candidate (2 times). Currently Clinton is a private citizen with no future plans for politics but her presence in politics still loom large mostly due to Donald Trump and allies still using her as a foil.
Bernie Sanders is currently the US Senator from Vermont and a former Presidential candidate. Sanders commands a large vocal following and he still wields a lot of influence in the Democratic party. Odds are strong he will make another Presidential run.
