We are getting closer and closer to the launch of Pokemon Legends: Arceus, and in prep for this, Nintendo and The Pokemon Company have been pumping out material to continue interest in the upcoming game.
First, a few days ago in Japan, Nintendo launched an introductory video that goes over some of the features and elements, and to be honest, this creates a bit more of a scary experience when you try and encounter some of the bigger and stronger Pokemon. The video is entirely in Japanese, but it is still worth a watch:
In addition to the Japanese video, Nintendo of America shared today the “A World of Adventure Awaits in Hisui” trailer, which is not quite as in-depth as the Japanese video but still gives a greatest sense of what is to come.
Get ready for a new kind of grand, Pokémon adventure in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, a brand-new game from Game Freak that blends action and exploration with the RPG roots of the Pokémon series. Embark on survey missions in the ancient Hisui region. Explore natural expanses to catch wild Pokémon by learning their behavior, sneaking up, and throwing a well-aimed Poké Ball. You can also toss the Poké Ball containing your ally Pokémon near a wild Pokémon to seamlessly enter battle.
Travel to the Hisui region – the Sinnoh of old—and build the region’s first Pokédex
Your adventure takes place in the expansive natural majesty of the Hisui region, where you are tasked with studying Pokémon to complete the region’s first Pokédex. Mount Coronet rises from the center, surrounded on all sides by areas with distinct environments. In this era – long before the events of the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl games—you can find newly discovered Pokémon like Wyrdeer, an evolution of Stantler, and new regional forms like Hisuian Growlithe, Hisuian Zorua, and Hisuian Zoroark! Along the way, uncover the mystery surrounding the Mythical Pokémon known as Arceus.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus launches on Switch January 28th, 2022 and will cost $59.99 USD. Continue to keep an eye out here for more coverage.
