- Palworld fans express their love for the game by creating stunning trading cards featuring their favorite Pals, including one of Chillet.
- The trading cards have sparked a desire for an official trading card game, although concerns about controversy with Pokemon exist.
- Despite controversies, Palworld’s early access release has been a big success, with plans for future updates including PvP modes and new Pals.
A talented artist and Palworld fan has created an incredible trading card featuring Chillet, one of the game’s most popular Pals. Since its successful early access release, Palworld has amassed a massive player count and very positive reviews, making way for a vibrant online community in which many players share their creative projects from in-game base builds to fan art.
One of Palworld’s most popular features is its lovable Pals that accompany players through their adventures and can aid in combat and with projects around their base. Pals are an integral part of the Palworld experience, as they serve as both collectible friends and assistance in progression. The adorable Pals also need care from the players to stay healthy and happy, requiring players to acquire beds, food, and even hot springs to keep their Pals satisfied. As players nickname and care for their in-game companions, many have grown quite attached to their Pals, leading to some Palworld fans creating art of their favorite Pals.
Nintendo President Comments on Palworld Situation
Reiterating Nintendo’s stance, Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa comments on the ongoing Palworld controversy.
Palworld fan and artist DERIVE has taken their love for Pals and turned it into incredible trading cards. Their most recent creation is a full-art trading card with stunning foil details, featuring one of Palworld’s best ice Pals, Chillet. DERIVE’s card features stats from the game with design inspiration taken from Palworld’s menus. The artist has previously made cards for Sparkit and Gumoss and will continue creating cards for other Pals in the future.
Fan-Made Chillet Trading Card
The trading cards are reminiscent of the iconic Pokemon trading card game, although DERIVE’s cards are not a part of a playable game. In response to the cards, many Palworld fans desperately wished for a trading card game in the future. However, with controversies already lingering regarding the similarities between Palworld and Pokemon, an official card game could be received poorly. With a public statement about Palworld from The Pokemon Company already posted and some Pokemon fans calling the new title a “ripoff,” further connections to the iconic game could be harmful to Palworld.
Regardless of controversies, Palworld’s early access release has been a massive success with record-breaking player counts awarding Palworld excellent ratings on Steam. PocketPair has already announced big plans for the game’s future, and while a trading card game is not in the works, fans can look forward to PvP modes, new islands, new Pals, and more. While Palworld still has controversies and issues to overcome, the future is looking bright for fans of the game.
Pocket Pair’s Palworld is a creature-collection game set in an open-world. Entering early access on January 19, 2024, the project blends survival, building, farming, monster breeding, and shooter elements.
