Pokémon fans seem “disappointed” at the new details in Pokémon Legends: Arceus that question its open world, as these indicate that it will not be as many players expect.
When Legends Pokémon: Arceus was announced in February , many saw the Breath of the Wild of Pokémon Company . However, it also seemed like an open world in Sinnoh , something that might not be the case.
The Hisui region does leave Game Freak’s most ambitious project , but these new details about the game could change your perspective. The title will arrive in January 2022 and now many are wondering if Pokémon Legends: Arceus will really be an open world .
The expected new game in the Pokémon saga is perhaps linear, with fragmented sections and similar to the Wild Area of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield ; this has left some disappointed .
There’s been mumbling around like this since August, when Joe Merrick of Serebii tweeted about it. The popular Pokémon veteran explained why Pokémon Legends: Arceus would not be a ” complete ” open world.
” It’s becoming incredibly clear that Pokémon Legends: Arceus might not be a full open world, but segmented open areas, like Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Monster Hunter, etc, separated into different spaces like the Wild Area did and I’m fine with it. “, He said.
Merrick included images of the game showing the map sectioned into parts. The theory gained more consistency when many fans took a look at the official Game Freak website .
In the Features section , it reads: “By completing tasks you will also contribute to the work with the Galaxia Expedition Team and will raise the rank of member, giving you access to new areas .”
This last part in specific, the one of ” new areas ” has left the speculation that the game would, without a doubt, with a map divided in several zones, instead of a complete open world .
Of course, it does not mean that it is linear, although this theory has also been around for a few days on the YouTuber ‘aDrive’. In part, because the nobles from the latest trailers would block progress.
” It is becoming very clear that LegendsArceus would not be like BotW and that these nobles will block us, so we will have to play in a specific order,” he said. Meanwhile, Pokémon Go turns 5 and continues to be a success despite the pandemic
