There are new Pokemon games on the horizon!
Game Freak announced Pokemon Legends: Arceus, an open-world action-RPG, which will arrive in early 2022 for Nintendo Switch.
Here’s more about the game, set in the feudal past of the Sinnoh region, via IGN: “Announced during today’s Pokemon Presents broadcast, gameplay showed a game world reminiscent of Breath of the Wild, covered in wild Pokemon to catch, and seemingly using some action mechanics for play. The aim is to create Sinnoh’s first Pokedex, and includes exploration, Pokemon capture, and a version of the series’ traditional turn-based battles.”
The game will center around the mythical Pokemon Arceus.
In addition, remakes of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl will be released in late 2021 for Nintendo Switch.
“Experience the nostalgic story from Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl in a new adventure,” Pokemon’s official YouTube declared. Check out the trailers for the games!
