New Pokémon game announced for Switch

Today, we have the right: We’re celebrating Pokemon! They blew out their 26 candles! To close a year of celebration of the 25th anniversary of the license, a Pokémon Day comes today to brighten up our Sunday.

Game Freak et The Pokémon Company gave us a nice surprise for the end of the Pokemon Day of February 27, 2022 As we thought we would see a video highlighting new DLC for Pokémon Legends: Arceusthey come neither more nor less than to confirm the release of the 9th generation of pocket monsters. This new generation will therefore be available in two versions: Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Purple are expected for the end of 2022 on Nintendo Switch.

A sequel in the footsteps of Legend Arceus

Unsurprisingly, we find the game engine of Pokémon Legends: Arceus as well as the models of the Pokémon even if the environments however seem a little more detailed. To see if the studio will have had time to improve the graphic rendering which remains the big black spot of the franchise despite a jump in quality with the last title. Note also that the outfit of the male and female character will have a slight color difference depending on the version. According to the description given by the official Pokémon channel, this time it will be a real open world. The first images seem to depict a rather dense port city, we can even see what seems to be our avatar’s house. On the other hand, no new Pokémon have been unveiled except for the new starters.

Three new starters

These new games thus introduce the ninth generation of Pokémon, with obviously a new trio of starters who will be there to accompany you during your next adventure. Discover the appearance Pushed, Chochodile and Hairdresserthe three new starters! At the moment, we do not yet know the evolved forms of these three starters. We will have to wait for additional information to find out more!
