In a piece of recent news, the ninth generation of Pokemon games was revealed in a Pokemon Presents live stream on 27 Feb 2022. According to the Pokemon company, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will hit Nintendo Switch in late 2022 and are set in a new region that looks to have been inspired by lovely Mediterranean Europe.
Pokémon fans won’t have to wait long to play the next entry in their favorite gaming series. On the morning of 27 Feb, the Pokémon Company announced two new mainline titles, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and said it expects them to launch sometime in late 2022.
The Game Freak-developed Scarlet and Violet will be even more open-world than the recent Pokemon Legends: Arceus, with towns blending seamlessly into the wilderness with no borders. Your outfit will vary depending on which game you play.
Building on the recently released Pokémon Legends: Arceus, developer Game Freak said the games would offer an open-world adventure for players to discover.
Judging from the teaser the studio shared, players can expect to explore a mix of pastoral countryside and bustling urban landscapes. You can see the three new starters at the end of the clip. From left to right, they’re Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly. As you might expect, all three look adorable, and you might have trouble picking one over another.
While fans wait for Scarlet and Violet, they can look forward to a new “Daybreak” update for Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Available to download later today, the update adds a new quest for players to complete and additional opportunities to battle Legendary Pokémon.
A new anime based on the game’s Hisui region is coming later this year. Aside from the Gen 9 games, the Pokemon Company also revealed that Legends: Arceus is getting a free content update called Daybreak on Sunday. It will cause more Pokemon outbreaks in the wild and add new battles to the Training Ground in Jubilife Village.
You can also claim a bunch of free Pokeballs by entering the code “ARCEUSADVENTURE” in the menu’s Mystery Gift option. It’ll be available until March 31.
