Arceus takes place in Hisui, the former name of the Sinnoh region, long before the main Pokemon series. Players will be tasked with traveling the world and catching Pokémon to compile the first Pokédex. Although Arceus will retain the RPG style of the mainline games, it will change things up by introducing a real-time action game.
While Arceus has an open world vibe to it, it won’t be completely open world. Instead, players will set up for missions in a town and then head off to complete the objective. That said, the levels do look quite large and are certainly reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in terms of style.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus launches exclusively on Nintendo Switch in January 28. It’s the first big Nintendo Switch exclusive of 2022, but it’s far from the only one on the horizon. Nintendo just announced that Kirby and the Forgotten Land, another game that has a Breath of the Wild vibe, is coming to Switch on March 25.
