The next Pokemon game is a rather ambitious take on the formula. Inspired by open-world design and set way in the past, there's a lot to pay attention to. If you're looking to play it for yourself, this is what you should know.
Latest - Launches Today
Pokemon Legends: Arceus is now available worldwide. If you're looking to get in there to see what it's all about, you can do so.
It seems likely this game will see some support for a while, perhaps in the form of DLC. If it does, we'll update you right here.
Pokemon Legends Arceus Pre Order Bonuses
If you decide to pre-purchase the new Pokemon game from the Nintendo eShop, you can get your hands on the following Bonus Pre-Order items...
- Hisuian Growlithe Kimono Set - Outfit
- Baneful Fox Mask - Outfit Accessory
We don't know if these will be buyable in-game, either - so, if you like the look of them it might be worth picking this game up a tad earlier.
These two items will be available to players who purchase Pokemon Legends Arceus before May 9th, 2022. However, if you purchase and download the game before this date, you'll also be able to get your hands on 30 Heavy Balls. From what we can tell, the Heavy Balls are an eShop exclusive Pre-Order Bonus for Pokemon Legends Arceus, however, the outfit items will presumably be available to people choosing to pre-purchase the game from retailers.
How to Redeem Pre Order Bonuses In-Game
You'll be able to redeem the pre order bonuses through the Pokemon Legends Arceus' Mystery Gift feature. At the moment, we don't know how you can access this in-game, but you'll likely be introduced to it after the first few hours.
As soon as we know how to, we'll update you here.
Physical bonus items from Amazon UK
If you're not too bothered about in-game items, then you might want to consider picking up Pokemon Legends Arceus from Amazon UK for £54.99 Here, you can get Pokemon Legends Arceus with the following items:
- Pokemon Legends Arceus - Base Game
- Pokemon Legends Arceus Steelbook Case
- Pokemon Legends Arceus Hisuian Pokeball Switch Cartridge Case
This might be a little more than the base game, but it's hard to deny that the steelbook case looks amazing!
" Your adventure takes place in the expansive natural majesty of the Hisui region, where you are tasked with studying Pokémon to complete the region’s first Pokédex. Mount Coronet rises from the center, surrounded on all sides by areas with distinct environments. In this era—long before the events of the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl games—you can find newly discovered Pokémon like Wyrdeer, an evolution of Stantler, and new regional forms like Hisuian Growlithe, Hisuian Zorua, and Hisuian Zoroark! Along the way, uncover the mystery surrounding the Mythical Pokémon known as Arceus."
Pokemon Legends Arceus is available exclusively on Nintendo Switch from January 28th, 2022.
