Game Freak’s next Pokemon title is going to be a game-changer – and we don’t say that lightly. Pokemon Legends Arceus is ushering in a new age of third-person free-roam Pokemon games, doing away with the top-down isometric dungeon crawler-esque gameplay we’ve seen reiterated for years. Trainer battles aren’t the concern anymore, but don’t let that fool you – this game is innovating the traditional turn-based battle mechanic to create a fun and free-flowing combat system to match its exploration into Pokemon’s lore. If you’re wondering when this incredible-sounding game is due to release, we have everything you need to know about when Pokemon Legends Arceus is due to come out.
