Yesterday’s round ended pretty heavily in favor of Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver versions, raking in almost half of all votes cast and coming in at approximately twice the number of votes given to the runner-up. Now it’s time to figure out the first game that Pokémon will compete against in Round 2.
Skies of Arcadia Legends, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, and Wild Arms 3 are set to duke it out today! You may notice that the games in this round don’t share a common theme—that’s because it’s our leftover round! While all are solid RPGs in their own right, we weren’t sure exactly where to put them in our bracket, so we did the only reasonable thing: we grouped them together. As for why this round is happening on the second day of competition instead of at the end, we just didn’t plan the bracket well enough!
To vote, simply use the poll included above, but be quick! Match-ups in this round only last a day and there’s no going back, so once the poll closes, it’s closed for good. Which “outsider” will earn its place in the cool kids’ club? Be sure to check back tomorrow to find out, and don’t forget to visit the tournament’s hub page, where you can find the complete list of contenders, as well as up-to-date standings.
Update: The combatants for the next match-up are: Xenogears, Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, and Pandora’s Tower. Fire Emblem will have its day soon enough!
