Nintendo has released a trailer for its Pokemon Presents showcase. It also contains tons of information.
Today’s Pokemon Presents showcase featured a lot of new information from Nintendo about the highly anticipated Pokemon Legends Arceus. Nintendo released a beautiful new trailer that covers a unique battle system and new regional pokemon.
Pokemon Legend – Arceus takes place in the Hisui area — a natural paradise home to many ecosystems and has stuffed all types of regional pokemon. You will help the Galaxy Expedition Team to study the region and compile the first Pokedex.
Nintendo gave us a peek into Pokemon Legends Arceus’ battle system. It combines classic pokemon gameplay and a few new twists. The Action Order bar displays the next pokemon’s turn and provides a new feature. Attacks that fall under either the agile or strong style category can impact the order of your turn and the frequency of your attacks. Strong style moves are more powerful but slower and take longer to complete your next episode. These agile-style moves are slower but more effective. You will have multiple chances to attack at once with them.
Pokemon Legends – Arceus showcased the many types of pokemon that live in the Hisui region. Pokemon Legends will showcase regional variations of pokemon that have been specially adapted for life in the Hisui region, just like Sun and Moon and Sword and Shield. You can ride some local variants like the Hisuian breviary, and the spirit possessed basculegion to traverse the vast, varied landscape.
Pokemon Legends Arceus marks a bold new direction in the beloved franchise for monster-catching. The game’s emphasis upon free-roaming in swaying grass while little bidoofs leap about has drawn comparisons with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Nintendo seems to be trying to break away from the traditional Pokemon game format by offering players a beautiful pokemon-filled world and the opportunity to explore it.
Pokemon Legends Arceus will be available on the Nintendo Switch, January 28th, 2022.
