Pokemon Legends: Arceus Box Art

Pokemon Legends: Arceus

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a highly anticipated upcoming Action RPG spin-off title from the Pokémon Franchise. The game will be released on January 28th, 2022, on the Nintendo Switch. The game is being developed by Game Freak, who are the developers of all the Pokémon Games dating back to Pokémon: Red and Blue released in 1996.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus takes place in the Sinnoh Region but also will feature Pokémon from the newer games as well. The game takes place before Pokémon Diamond and Pearl canonically and there no Pokémon Leagues in this game, so it will be interesting to see how the story of this game adds to entire franchise as a whole. The game will allow catching Pokémon by just throwing Pokéballs without needing to battle all Pokémon, a style that was made popular by the mobile game Pokémon Go and the Switch titles- Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu! And Let’s Go
Eevee!
