This is Game8's wiki for Pokemon Legends: Arceus, the new open-world Pokemon game coming to Nintendo Switch in Early 2022. Learn everything we know about this new entry in the Pokemon franchise!
Pokemon Legends: Arceus has been confirmed for release in Early 2022, following the Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl release in Winter 2021.
Unlike the Diamond and Pearl Remakes, Pokemon Legends: Arceus will be developed by GameFreak directly. The team seems to be placing heavy resources into its development, so we're excited to see a new stage for the Pokemon franchise unfold with this new game.
|Game Title||Pokemon Legends: Arceus|
|Release Date||Early 2022 (Worldwide)|
|Available Platforms||Nintendo Switch|
|Official Site||Pokemon Official Site|
Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set in the Sinnoh region, long before the events of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl take place. The player gets to encounter the Pokemon they've met in those games but in more uncivilized and exciting new environments. The player will begin their adventure at a time when being a Pokemon Trainer was rare. They'll wield PokeBalls made out of primitive wood, which promise a fresh new take on the staple mechanic.
The player will roam the wild, observing and studying the Pokemon before attempting to catch it. The player travel the region with the goal of building the region's first Pokedex. As always, the player is accompanied by a Starter Pokemon of their choice, with the choices this go around being the Grass Pokemon Rowlet, the Fire Pokemon Cyndaquil, and the Water Pokemon Oshawott - all different Starters from different regions.
As the player progresses through their journey, they will uncover the legend of Arceus, the origin of the Sinnoh region, and perhaps even of the entire Pokemon world.
