Some big Pokemon news released today. Not only are we getting the long-awaited remakes to Pokemon Diamond & Pearl we’re also getting a brand new open-world RPG called Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
The big news for today is definitely Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Why? Because it’s basically Breath of the Wild meets Pokemon. This is what everyone has been begging Game Freak for since Breath of the Wild released back in 2017. Hopefully, this game won’t suck like Breath of the Wild though.
Pokemon Legends looked really rough around the edges which is to be expected since we’re still a year off from release. What I saw really impressed me though including the three-starter Pokemon. Instead of introducing brand new starters, Game Freak mixed three different starters from three completely different Pokemon games and none of them are from Kanto!
My boy Cyndaquil is back! Rowlett and Oshawott are returning as well.
I love the fact that Game Freak went back and choose starters from different generations. I’m definitely going with Cyndaquil because he’s been underappreciated for far too long. Pokemon Legends: Arceus looked really, really good to me and I can’t wait to learn more about it.
The next games I’m going to write about are Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl. Many people were afraid that the remakes to Diamond & Pearl would be based on the Let’s Go games that released a few years back. I’m happy to report that isn’t the case here. Game Freak went back to the basics with these games.
It has a similar art style to Link’s Awakening and even has an isometric view like the original games did. It’s very impressive and it’ll be here before Legends. I plan on getting every one of these games and Pokemon Snap too. It’s a good year to be a Pokemon fan and I love how creative Game Freak was with these new games.
I’m Omar. I’m the founder of drakulus.com and the new founder of Petescorner.net. I cover every type of game genre there is and I’m using all of the skills I learned over the last 7 years working on Drakulus to make Pete’s Corner the best it can be. My favorite types of games are strategy, RPGs, and Shooters. That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy other types of genres. Those are just my top 3. You can expect my brutally honest opinion on what I think of games in long reviews, editorial pieces, and game news coverage.
