A brand-new spin on the Pokemon franchise is coming to Nintendo Switch in early 2022. Announced during the latest Pokemon Presents presentation, Pokemon Legends Arceus is an open-world RPG set in the Sinnoh region. While we don’t know much about the game just yet, diehard Pokemon fans can already preorder Pokemon Legends Arceus.
Pokemon Legends Arceus is set in a much earlier time period than the mainline entries. You play as a Pokemon trainer who is compiling Sinnoh’s first Pokedex. Sinnoh’s Pokemon Professor has brought three Pokemon to Sinnoh–Rowlet, Cyndaquil, and Oshawott–and you get to choose one of them as your partner Pokemon. From there, you head off on an adventure to survey and catch Pokemon. The legendary Pokemon at the center of the story is, of course, Arceus, who is described as an “Alpha Pokemon.”
