If you’re just about done with your playthrough of the recent Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl remakes, the good news is there’s a new Pokemon game on the horizon – and it looks like it could be the series’ most ambitious title in years. Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set “in an age long ago” and takes place in the Hisui region (which will later become Sinnoh), where you’ll build the very first Pokédex.

While original trailers for the game gave the impression of a massive Breath of the Wild–like world, the Pokémon Company has since confirmed that Arceus’ “open-world” is structured more like Monster Hunter, where players will set out to explore one of the various open areas in Hisui.

In any case, you’ll be able to encounter various Pokemon while roaming freely around Hisui’s fields and mountains, and it looks like these wild animals will be able to attack your player character.

While we don’t know how big Arceus‘ Pokédex will be, we’ve seen a few new Pokemon confirmed, along with a healthy mix of familiar faces from previous generations – the choice of starters include Rowlet, Cyndaquil, and Oshawott. The game will also feature new region-exclusive variants, including a wooden Voltorb, cursed Zorua and a Growlithe with a rock-hard helmet head.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus is shaping up to be an interesting take on the standard formula, and we’ll find out how well it sticks the landing when it’s released on January 28. Here’s everywhere in Australia where you can grab a cheap copy before its release.

  • 10% off eshop gift cards at Target, buy a game voucher and get the game way cheaper than amazon. Heck, even without the 10% it still beats Amazon.

    Sorry affiliate links.

    At least they posted other retailers unlike their ‘cheapest switch games’ articles which are just an Amazon list and pretty shite during the Nov sales.
