There is a ‘Breath of the Wild’ blowing through my ‘Pokemon’. That’s roughly the number of Pocket Monster fans around the world who reacted after the first scenes of “Pokémon Legends: Arceus” came out. We can assure the final match that this is the case. “Arceus” brings a breath of fresh air to the series, which has been clinging to traditional styles for far too long.
“Pokémon Legends: Arceus” is about filling the first Pokédex in feudal Hisui (later Sinnoh diamond and pearl area). So we are playing Octopus data and we have to study and catch every Pokemon. It all takes place in an open game world divided into various biomes. The “I want to be the best I’ve ever” portion of the 1999 anime’s opening song has no role in “Arceus”. We don’t have to go through the stadiums and collect medals in a linear fashion. It’s all about “grab them all”.
Come and take them
This brings “Arceus” as close to the original fantasy of the anime as it has been in the series before and that makes it so special. In the evening, we play the Standard Edition that Nintendo gave us for testing purposes. We’ve already left the lengthy two-hour tutorial behind so we can move freely in the biome. We also want in the live broadcast to highlight technology that unfortunately has not been updated. We’re looking forward to your opinions on whether the new Pokemon is programmed to be ugly and lazy, or if you think the whole thing is tolerable.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus does not offer multiplayer duels, only the ability to trade Pokémon with other players via Nintendo Online. Pokémon Legenden: Arceus is available from January 28, 2022, costs around 50 euros and has a youth version of USK from 6 years old.
