Pokemon Legends Arceus: Latest News, Release Date. Trailer, Pre-Order, Starters And Everything You Need To Know

Game Freak are bringing us an all-new addition to the long-running series next year!

The developers of Pokemon gaming are bringing us another new title to the series – Pokemon Legends Arceus.

Game Freak are the geniuses behind the iconic franchise that has grown into a seismic brand over the past 24 years, as players explore the wider worlds of Kanto, Johto and beyond to catch em’ all.

It has never been a straightforward task to do so, with 898 different species and forms of evolution across the entire franchise – including 59 Legendaries. 

That being said, Legends Arceus will provide a new challenge entirely that takes players to a region called Hisui. Game Freak themselves described the fictional location as “a land from an age long ago that will one day become known as the Sinnoh region.”

The historic element of it reminds us of The Legend of Zelda in a way, emphasising the adventure factor which Pokemon has always carried at the forefront.

So, get your PokeBalls ready! Here is everything that you need to know regarding Pokemon Legends Arceus:
