The recent leak on upcoming Pokémon games anticipated the long-awaited Diamond and Pearl remake. It stated that fans would see a new open-world production set in a bygone era. Again, the leak turned out to be correct with the official announcement of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, scheduled for early 2022 on Switch.
If the announcement of Pokémon Shining Diamond and Shining Pearl were not enough, the remakes of the chapters released on the Nintendo DS in 2007, a new production promises to ignite the Switch titles next year. We are talking about Pokémon Legends: Arceus, shown during the celebratory event for the brand’s twenty-five years.
The events of Arceus are set in a Sinnoh of the past: also, in this case, the Monte Corona stands out with its grandeur, but the Pokémon live in freedom in places that are profoundly different from those seen in the other iterations of the series.
In this era, humans have recently moved to Sinnoh, and they know nothing of the region’s places. Once he has chosen a companion among Rowlet, Cyndaquil, and Oshawott, it will be up to the player to explore the lands surrounding his village to create the very first Pokédex in history and face battles. All without forgetting the mysterious Arceus, according to legend, connected to the very origin of the universe.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus has no official release date and will arrive on Nintendo Switch in early 2022.
