It’s that time of the week again. You know, the one where we go out on the prowl to bring you a Switch deal that you simply can’t ignore, and, on this occasion, we think it’s a pretty good one. We swear to Arceus that it is. That’s right, on Amazon US, you can pick up Pokémon Legends: Arceus for $49.99 – that’s a lovely saving of 17%.
Unlike other Pokémon games, Arceus has open world features that allow you to explore various locations in the Hisui region, each of which is home to different types of Pokémon. Some you might recognise, while others appear slightly different to what you’re used to. For example, Arcanine has a fresh look and is both a rock and fire-type ‘mon.
Furthermore, the game has a heavy emphasis on research, with each species of Pokémon needing to be caught more than once to discover everything there is to learn about it. Better still, the battling and catching system is different, but this works in the game’s favour and serves as a fun alternative to what you see in the main series of titles.
