Pokémon Legends Arceus, the long-awaited survival title for the Nintendo Switch, released on January 28!

Pokémon Legends: Arceus, the latest Pokémon game to be released on the Nintendo Switch, takes the series in a completely different direction. In addition to the franchise's traditional role-playing elements, the game incorporates survival and exploration mechanics that were inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the Monster Hunter franchise.

While most Pokémon games are slow-paced journeys that take players between cities as they collect Pokémon and engage in turn-based battles with their opponents, Pokémon Legends: Arceus introduces several open-world regions where hostile Pokémon can attack players directly and resources are much more scarce.

Below, we've broken down some of the game's most important features, as well as the game's price, release date, and preorder information.

For the physical versions of the game, preorder bonuses are also available at specific retailers; Amazon is giving players a digital download for a special outfit modeled after the Pokémon Garchomp, while GameStop is giving away a set of art cards based on the game's design. In conjunction with preorders, the Pokémon Center was offering an Arceus plushie, but it appears to have sold out.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus takes place when and where?

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a prequel that takes place hundreds of years before the events of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, two classic Pokémon games that were first released on the DS in 2006 and have since become classics.

The action of the game takes place in the Hisui region, which is the name of the settlement area that will eventually become the Sinnoh region of the games Diamond and Pearl. As in previous Pokémon games, players select one of three starting Pokémon to use as a partner: Rowlet, Cyndaquil, or Oshawott. Each of these Pokémon has a unique ability. After that, players are tasked with researching large natural areas in the Hisui region, as well as the Pokémon that live in them.

Is the game open-world?

However, while the game isn't completely open-world like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Red Dead Redemption, it will allow players to explore and interact with the world of Pokémon on a deeper level than was previously possible in previous games such as the original Pokémon games.

In addition, you will be able to travel across several large wild regions in search of Pokémon. However, rather than forming one continuous world, these areas are divided into a number of distinct segments. The inclusion of survival and crafting mechanics should also make the game feel more engaging for players who are looking for something different from the traditional Pokémon experience.

It is currently unknown whether or not Pokémon Legends: Arceus will feature any form of multiplayer; Nintendo has stated that the game will feature online trading, but no other online features have been announced.
