“Pokemon Legends: Arceus” has recently been added to our list of the top Nintendo Switch games, making it the only Switch title launched in 2022 to make the cut. If you haven’t picked up a copy of Arceus yet, you can get one for $45 with GameSpot’s exclusive discount code GSPKMA from Daily Steals right now. This deal was originally available a few weeks before to debut, but if you missed it, now is your opportunity. The coupon code is only valid till March 29th.
“Pokemon Legends: Arceus“, while not nearly a mainline Pokemon game in the traditional sense, does preserve components of the famous formula, such as the turn-based battle system. While Arceus does not have a completely open environment, it does include wider places to explore in pursuit of new Pokemon while completing mission-based tasks.
In GameSpot’s review of “Pokemon Legends: Arceus”, it received an 8/10. “Once it finds its stride, though, “Pokemon Legends: Arceus” is the most adventurous and innovative the franchise has been in years, tearing apart the staid core and creating something new and fascinating from its bits,” observed critic Steve Watts.
The year 2022 will be significant for Pokemon. Aside from Arceus, the following two mainstream games, Scarlet and Violet, will be released this Christmas season. Preorders for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are now available if you already know you’re going to buy one (or both). Fans of the series will be delighted by the double dosage of Pokemon, but Nintendo Switch users will have plenty more to look forward to. We’ve compiled a list of the most anticipated Nintendo Switch exclusives, some of which will be released in the coming months.
