On Friday morning, a new Pokémon game was revealed to the world – something fans have craved for years!
Pokémon Legends: Arceusis a 3D Pokémon game that looks like an open world. It’s now coming to Nintendo Switch and is expected to be available in early 2022.
Now why do we say that fans have wanted this game for years? Well, the latest game has the open-world visuals similar to the widely popular series. The Pokémon Company has also released a video presentation as an announcement to alert the fans.
The game essentially gives tribute to the Pokémon games of the past by infusing a new action and RPG element. As per the official website, there is a blend of mainline Pokémon games in addition to an active gameplay.
Due to the strong visuals, the game is now being compared to Nintendo’s 2017 reinvention of the Legend of Zelda and Breath of the Wild. The reason for this comparison is the way the camera moves in the trailer – peculiarly similar.
Apart from a fantastical open-world nature of the game, the trailer of Pokémon Legends gives an ode to its foundation – the core which the game was actually based on.
The traditional version of Pokémon had tracking, battling, and capturing of Pokémon at its core. It was based in the Sinnoh region, like in the Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl games.
The company says that the new game is going to remind you of the long-passed era. The story that is ready to be unfolded will remind fans of the era when there was no Pokémon trainer or even a Pokémon league.
