Nintendo shows off 13 minutes of Pokemon Legends: Arceus gameplay

Pokemon Legends: Arceus is only a little over two weeks away from launch, and with the imminent release of the game, Nintendo has decided to let players know a bit more about it. A thirteen-minute gameplay overview was published, going over gameplay mechanics, quests, the battle system, and more, including showing off a boss battle against the Pokemon Kleavor, which looks somewhat related to the Scyther line. If you're not already sold on Legends: Arceus, or you're just looking to hype yourself up, make sure to check out the video.

Really apple vs orange here consider botw doesn't have Pokemon and have to reuse a dozen enemy models to begin with.
Yeah because I'm sure a 5 fps chingling sprite would cost a lot of power

More seriously, the thing is that BoTW's art style is just ... made better. Legends Arceus just looks washed out. Honestly I get that the game would look more « cold », it's fine and it does suits the environnement of the game, but there's 0 work with the lights, the water looks ugly asf, same for the trees, no shadows too. It definitely deserved more. Remember that Hyrule Warriors dips below 30 fps because it has a lot of effects happening, same for BoTW, and sure stable 30 fps is good enough, but I don't see any GREAT ACTION BOOM WAOUW stuff happening like in Hyrule Warriors so with better lights, shadows, etc, I don't see how it would have affected the framerate, other games do it constantly.

Besides the graphic aspect, honestly it genuinely looks cool. I like the fact that they changed the rules of the fighting system. I would have LOVED a more « action-style » but I get that it would upset those who prefer the turn based system, so I'm fine with that. I like how you can interact with wild pokemons tho I'll also wait to see gameplay and play myself to see if they aren't dumb as hell. I like how they show the way of being able to fly or swim with Pokemons and travel, looks pretty nice, and finally I do like the fact that they added a crafting system, and I hate crafting most of the time, but in such a game it does suits very well.

All in all, I'm glad they are trying something new. I'm just sad it looks so fucking bad, but it could still be a good game and I hope it will be. Saying that this is « bare-bones » isn't true, they obviously got out of their way to try something new and that's obvious to me even as a « hater », but for now they still seem incapable of doing something great « technical-wise », which is a shame, but that's not all there is into a game, let's not judge the product just because it looks ugly, we need to be fair.

Tho I will get mad if the game isn't stable at 30 fps, I do hope they aren't cheating with the trailers like Hyrule Warriors, but even if it does I don't care too much I'll play on Yuzu anyway and it'll be better


Yeah you know what, screw that, it's ugly af and I forgot that it wasn't even open, it's hub based and they even tried to make up like « oh but we never said it was open, duh, not our fault you thought it would be » and they have huge means, they could do something way better but that's better than what we've been accustomed to. So, I guess we could say they just got a little bit LESS lazy, they obviously started trying some stuff.

I'm still more hyped about the Tencent clone, not joking, watch that and tell me that doesn't look like what Pokemon should look like (the game is called Roco Kingdom and is aimed towards mobile)

I really think they rushed this again, it looks I like a alpha build...but this is game freak we are talking about

I skipped the gen 4 remakes for this
i also skip them for this one. i think the no platinum stuff really ruin my view of them.

even with all the red flags I really hope I'm wrong about this one

If morons bought six copies of sword and shield for everyone and their literal dogs, this is going to sell no matter how poor it ends up being.

I was really hoping for something more engaging out of this game. But everything I've seen and heard so far is just giving me all the reasons to not even waste my time with it. Not saying that I could be proven wrong... But there is a reason that the only recent Pokémon release I picked up was the new Snap; it was the least likely to get screwed over by game freak and their insanity inducing refusal to listen to any opinions outside of Japan.
