Pokémon Celebrates 25 Years With An All-New Open World RPG Called Arceus For Nintendo Switch
In 2006, Pokémon trainers entered the Sinnoh region in Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl on the Nintendo DS. Just over 15 years later, players can return to the region in faithful recreations of Diamond and Pearl in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl. Developed by ILCA, Inc., both games have been revitalized over their original counterparts and should look great on the Nintendo Switch. While there are some original features and locations, the games have also been updated with, as Ishihara explains, “easy-to-understand, player-friendly conveniences introduced in recent Pokémon core series video games, in addition to up-close-and-personal Pokémon battle scenes.”
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 battle. This new gameplay angle is intended to provide trainers with an immersive experience.
The art design of the game reminds us somewhat of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. And it appears that we aren't the only ones with that idea, as you can see from the tweets below:
