Pokémon Legends: Arceus is going to release in 2022, First Open-World Game in The Series

It’s been years; Pokémon fans are expecting a true open-world title in the series, where a player can find Pokémon in the open environment and can capture with some strategy. In Pokémon Shield and Sword, there were some limited open-world areas, but the idea was not fully optimized. Now the new Pokémon Legends: Arceus is fully unveiled.

This game will feature a full Breathe-of-the-Wild-style open world, and the players need to understand the environment to find and capture Pokémon. Right now, this one is the Game Freak’s main project (the Pearl/Diamond remakes are now in the hand of a new studio), and they expect that this title will be the next big one in the series’ evolution.

The fun of exploring while catching Pokémon and filling in a Pokédex has always been a core part of the Pokémon video game series. Pokémon Legends: Arceus was developed with the desire to deliver an experience infused with new action and RPG elements that go beyond the framework established thus far while honoring the core gameplay of past Pokémon titles.

As Trainers explore the natural expanses in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, they’ll encounter Pokémon that call these grand vistas home. To catch wild Pokémon, players can study the Pokémon’s behaviors, sneak up to them, then throw Poké Balls. Players can also battle wild Pokémon with their ally Pokémon. By throwing the Poké Ball holding their ally Pokémon near a wild Pokémon, players will seamlessly enter the battle. This new gameplay angle is intended to provide Trainers with an immersive experience.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus brings Trainers to the vast Sinnoh region as it existed in the past, long before Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl’s setting was established. Rich in nature and with Mount Coronet towering at its heart, this is a Sinnoh unlike anything Trainers have experienced before as they embark on creating the region’s first Pokédex. As they start on their adventure, Trainers will be able to choose either Rowlet, Cyndaquil, or Oshawott as their first partner Pokémon. These three Pokémon arrived with a Pokémon Professor, who encountered them on research excursions to various regions.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is expected to come in 2022 for Nintendo Switch.
