Fans who want a new open-world action-adventure take on the Pokémon franchise should keep an eye out for the Nintendo Switch exclusive Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
The upcoming game, which looks brand-new gameplay-wise but still retains the turn-based combat of the past JRPG series that feels like it’s wearing out its welcome, is coming out for the Switch on 28th January 2022.
The title features a new Hisui region to explore which looks like medieval countryside Japan but with some steampunk technology or two thrown in, and some new mechanics like real-time Pokémon riding and visible enemies to initiate turn-based battles with.
And of course, there are new Pokémon like Wyrdeer, Basculegion, Hisuian Braviary, and the adorable Hisuian Growlithe (pictured below in that order).
Check out the gameplay trailer below.
