Slightly various from Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, which was launched simply a couple of weeks back, Pokemon Legends Arceus was a standalone game that really did not comply with the mainline collection’ formula. Marketed as the initial open-world Pokemon game, and also embeded in the old Hisui area, Arceus offered followers brand-new means to play and also presented a variety of brand-new Pokemon consisting of the Hisuian type ‘mons such as Hisuian Growlithe and also Hisuian Voltorb.
In our Pokemon Legends Arceus review, we stated the game was a “revolutionized” action in the collection thus far.
“Pokemon Legends: Arceus has the potential to be the Pokemon game of my childhood dreams, and it comes so close to being just that. By shifting the Pokemon formula to focus on enhanced open-world exploration, and the quest to catch ’em all, Pokemon Legends: Arceus has truly revolutionized the series for a more modern audience.”
