Nintendo of Japan has released a new Pokémon Legends: Arceus introductory video, which is viewable below.
Released alongside a trio of domestic TV commercials, it offers a six-minute gameplay overview ahead of the title’s arrival later this month.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus will be released exclusively for Nintendo Switch on January 28.
Nintendo of America has also released a new Switch trailer featuring Christina Aguilera and her family playing Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Among Us and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which you can view below.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus was announced last February, alongside DS remakes Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl, during a presentation scheduled to coincide with the franchise’s 25th anniversary.
Blending action and exploration with Pokémon’s RPG roots, it features one of the most unique settings in the history of the series – the Hisui region, before it would eventually become the Sinnoh region.
Rather than the regular challenge of defeating gym leaders and the Elite Four to become a Pokémon master, Legends focuses on discovery, with players challenged with studying Pokémon in a bid to complete the region’s first Pokédex.
