The Pokemon Presents presentation ended with some news that many Pokemon fans will be happy about, Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet have been announced for the Nintendo Switch console. Both games will release simultaneously later this year. Details are light, but it’s being developed by Gamefreak and the style of gameplay is akin to Pokemon Legends Arceus – go ahead and enjoy the announcement trailer below:
Gen 9, here we come!.
This basically confirms Arceus was indeed heavily delayed due to Covid.
I might actually end up buying this, I havent brought a poke game since yellow on the 3ds, I played moon for free and skip sword and shield so I might come.
Oh you skip the last gen?
Yeah sword/shield really didn’t interest me much, and I’m honestly not a huge pokemon fan I just like watching the anime and occasionaly playing the games
I do love the anime series but I stopped at sun and moon season 1 and let the dubbed version go by for a while and get back on watching the anime series soon. Also, its ok if you did skip the game honestly because I’m also a huge Pokemon fan myself. Sword and Shield was ok in my part, but it was a small led down because people notice that GameFreak are being lazy and they have reuse the character models from Sun and Moon.
Not gonna lie, but I’m glad that they are reusing the same mechanics style from Pokemon Legends Arceus in Gen 9 which they are still sticking to the style tone. Anyone else agrees?
Oh boy… please let this be like Legends and not like Sword and Shield.
Maybe it’s because Legends Arceus literally just released, but it feels very soon for Gen 9 to be announced already, never mind being released later this year.
Well it looks pretty interesting at least, I like that they seem to be following Legend’s new style of gameplay.
it’s worth noting that the typical gap between new generations is around 3 years, which has been consistent since the beginning with the exception of there being a 4 year gap between generations 3 and 4. I think it just feels sooner than it actually is because we just got both BDSP and legends in quick succession
that trailer and the title design made me think we were getting a game set in a victorian era setting for a moment there
This shows how soon a sequel to a popular franchise can debut when developers start work immediately
While Legends Arceus did restore some of my hope in the franchise, I am probably gonna wait until reviews come out before picking up this game; besides, 2022 is stacked as is (for me at least)
I hope the gameplay mechanics are similar to Legends, im not making demands or have high expectations.
