In an interview with GamesBeat JC Smith, the senior director of consumer marketing at The Pokemon Company, was asked when we’d next be seeing more on Pokemon Legends: Arceus. To which he replied: “We have a robust rollout, but not a lot that I can share at this time. But the team has a lot of great things to share, and you’ll be hearing from us soon.”
The world first found out about Pokemon Legends: Arceus during the Pokemon 25th Anniversary live stream where a number of new games were showcased. The Pokemon-themed Direct also included news on New Pokemon Snap and the Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl remakes.
We also recently found out that Pokemon Legends: Arceus’ has a release date of January 28, 2022 thanks to the launch of a new website dedicated to the game and a tweet from the official Pokemon Twitter account which also revealed the upcoming game’s box art.
This seemingly Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild-inspired game is a slight departure from the usual Pokemon formula, with a full 3D open-world that opts for a real-time battle system over the traditional turn-based one. The game is going to be set in the style of feudal Japan and will place players in an ancient version of the Sinnoh region.
