On February 26, when Pokémon Presents was revealed to us in a trailer Pokemon Legends: Arceus. We all drooled over the vast expanses of green that the player seems to be able to explore as freely as Zelda: Breath Of The Wild. But what is it really?
Indeed, it should be noted that this has never been judged Pokemon Legends: Arceus It will be an ‘open world’ but many players believe that the game will be so. However, some information from the game’s official website has already allowed us to make certain assumptions about it. Based on this information, We are not talking about Hisui as a whole but rather about “different regions with distinct environments.”. In addition, the official website presents the village of “Rusti-Cité” as the center of operations and that it will serve as a base for expeditions and excursions in which we can study the areas of the Hisui region.
on twitter, Joe Merrick, the webmaster of Serebii.net has posted two cards-like images from the game where we can see what the popular segmented areas will look like which, we assume, will unlock as we advance into the main window.
Our colleagues from Kotaku contacted the Pokémon Company to find out more and above all to clarify the situation. The Pokémon Company provided some clarifications, Pokémon Legends: Arceus will not be a Breath Of The Wild of the Pokémon license, but rather a game divided into several regions with distinct environments such as Monster Hunter Rise. Even if the game actually offers open areas, it will not be an open world in the strict sense of the word:
In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Rusti-City will serve as a base for research missions. After receiving a mission or request and preparing for their next journey, players will leave the village to study one of the various open areas in the Hisui region. After completing the investigative work, players will need to return again to prepare For their next mission. We look forward to sharing more information about exploring the Hisui region soon.”
Now that the point of the open world has settled, we can ask other questions, particularly about the design of the Hisui region, which is the “ancestor” of his Sunh: Will we find some core regions such as the Crowned and Silver Mountains, the lakes of knowledge, courage and truth? If, as described above, the game Pokemon Legends: Arceus Instead of looking like a Monster Hunter in its play, it seems interesting to wonder what a license like Pokémon represents to somehow corrupt the way it plays. This game will be a license opportunity to renew itself in terms of gameplay.
We’ll have all the answers to our questions when we have the game, starting January 28, 2022.
