It’s Tuesday which means it’s time for Crossroads Comics!
This week we’re taking a look at Wanted! – PC Nuzlocke. This comic is a Pokémon Colosseum Nuzlocke, which despite being based on a very popular side game, is not something you see nuzlocked very often, let alone having comics about them. That already makes this comic very interesting in its own right, but in addition to this, the author, Yume_Tsuki, has also made several changes and additions to the story that have made it a unique experience for those already familiar with the Pokémon Colosseum story.
The first major change comes in the form of the cast lineup. The usual main characters of Wes and Rui have been replaced with Yume and Chou. Although their personalities are somewhat similar to the characters they replaced, Yume and Chou have already proved themselves to be quite different, with Yume seen to be a lot friendly with the shopkeeper in the Outskirts. All in all their dynamic seems very interesting and even though they’ve only just met, I look forward to seeing more of it.
The other major change is that rather than picking up right where Pokémon Colosseum starts, with the explosion of the Team Snagem base, Wanted! – PC Nuzlocke gives us a bit of a peek behind the curtain and shows us a snipit of time just before the attack. Personally I thought this was a great touch, as it helped to establish Yume’s character and her relationship with her partner Pokémon before Chou was introduced. In-game there isn’t much time between the intro cutscene and when you first meet Rui, so by adding this prologue, it gave Yume_Tsuki a bit more breathing room to formally establish Yume’s character. All in all a very smart and well executed decision on her part.
This comic isn’t very far along yet, only in its first chapter, but it’s definitely a good quick binge if you’re looking for something new to read. You can find Wanted! – PC Nuzlocke over on ComicFury along with its author. So be sure to give it a read and show the author your support!
