Kotaku recently contacted The Pokemon Company to clarify whether the upcoming Pokemon Legends: Arceus will become a completely open world like Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Rockstar Games or Red Dead Redemption 2. Clarify that the upcoming Nintendo Switch game will be more like a Monster Hunter series with a designated area, rather than a fully realized open world game like Breath of the Wild. This is what the Pokemon Company told Kotaku.
TonThe Pokémon Company has sent a statement to Kotaku confirming the monster hunter-like structure of Pokémon Legend: Arceus.
In “Pokemon: Arceus”, Jubilee Village will be used as a base for investigation missions. After receiving a task or request and preparing for the next hike, the player will set off from the village to study one of the open areas in the Hisui area. After completing the investigation, the player needs to return again to prepare for the next mission. We look forward to sharing more information about exploring the Hisui area soon.
