The Pokémon Company and Game Freak travel to the past in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, the long-awaited new installment of the saga for Nintendo Switch. The title, which will unfold a much more open world than usual, is set in Sinnoh, the region of the fourth generation. Through a new Pokémon Presents, the company has not only shown the title in an unreleased gameplay trailer, but has also offered more information about the project.
In the new trailer for this title that mixes action and RPG mechanics, we will travel to Hisui, which in the future will be known as Sinnoh. It will be in the Jubilee Villa where we will establish the basis for our adventure. There is the Galaxy Team, of which we are part. We will meet characters like Professor Lavender or Captain Selene. The latter provides us with all the necessary support, but hides under a mask of toughness. Commander Comfortable, for his part, is a great and reputed leader. Game Freak has detailed the investigations, which consist of observing and knowing the Pokémon to analyze how they live. In addition, there are camps where we can prepare, create materials or heal wounded creatures.
When it comes to capturing Pokémon we can act stealthily, but not everyone reacts the same. At the same time, there are also combats, in which we can display the different styles of each of our animals.
Present and future of Pokémon
The main installment of the most recent saga is Pokémon Sword and Shield, which hit the market last year 2019. The saga has continued to receive other games, such as New Pokémon Snap, which has just been updated to version 2.0. Players can benefit from fresh content to revisit this world from a different perspective and through the camera. What’s more, Pokémon Unite It has just been released on Nintendo Switch, although it will also be released on mobile phones in the month of September.
In the near future there are two games announced. Pokémon Shiny Diamond and Shimmering Pearl will be released first, remakes that will respect the legacy of the original game, although their visuals have been completely renewed. They will be available from November 19, 2021. On the other hand, Pokémon Legends: Arceus will be marketed just a few months later, the January 28, 2022.
