New Pokémon Legends: Arceus Gameplay Preview Offers Best Look Yet At What This Game Actually Is

Nintendo and The Pokémon Company have released a new gameplay preview trailer for Pokémon Legends: Arceus and it’s a 13-minute look at what we’ll actually be doing in the game when it launches on January 28.  It offers the best look yet at this new take on the Pokémon formula, which is especially exciting because as of late, Nintendo has been churning out trailer after trailer showcasing essentially the same content. Not to mention, no official public hands-on previews have happened for this game so we don’t even know what playing Arceus feels like. However, today’s gameplay preview video provides some answers to a lot of the questions we had.  Click here to watch embedded media Exploration The trailer doubles down on the open-hub nature of the Hisui region, citing that each biome has different Pokémon to catch, terrain to traverse, and raw materials to gather. These raw materials can be used to craft items such as healing items, lures, smoke bombs, Poké Balls, and more, and the narrator says your Pokémon can help you find these materials too.  Wild Pokémon Different Pokémon appear based on the time of the day and weather conditions. Plus, different species have different temperaments. Some are skittish and might run away. Others are aggressive. If a Pokémon detects you, it will be in an alert state and it will deflect all Poké Balls you throw at it. In order to catch an alert Pokémon, you’ll need to battle it with one of your own.  You can distract Pokémon with things like food, too. Also, if you encounter aggressive Pokémon, they might immediately attack you and if you take too much damage, you’ll blackout and lose some of the items you were carrying.  Pokédex  As part of the Survey Corps, your job is to fill out the Pokédex. This doesn’t just consist of catching Pokémon – that will only get some of the survey report filled out. You’ll need to witness them doing certain moves or observe them at different parts of the day to learn more about the species and ultimately, complete their Pokédex entry.  Traversing The Hisui Region Because of how large the Hisui region is, you’ll have access to special “blessed” Pokémon that you can ride on. For example, you can ride Wyrdeer to navigate land faster, but you can also immediately hop onto the back of a Hisuian Braviary to fly through the skies, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire-style. Basculegion lets you skim through the rivers and seas of the Hisui region, too.  Jubilife Village Jubilife Village is the center of operations for the Galaxy Expeditions Team, which is a group of people who have set up camp in the Hisui region to learn about it and the Pokémon within. They’re made up of the Survey Corps, Security Corps, and Medical Corps. Jubilife is your home base and it’s here you’ll collect tasks and turn in completed ones. You can also purchase crafted items and clothes here, and trade Pokémon with other players here, too.  Missions and Requests Part of the gameplay loop of Arceus is completing missions and requests. The latter are small tasks to help the people of Hisui while the former is how you progress through Arceus’ story. You can use your Arc Phone in a very Sheikah Slate-way to set waypoints, map out the region, and more as well.  Battle As expected, battling in Pokémon Legends: Arceus is turn-based, like the traditional Pokémon games. However, there’s a twist in the form of different move styles. If you use an Agile-Style move, it raises the user’s action speed, which means their next move might happen sooner but the move will be weaker. Strong-Style moves, on the other hand, cause your Pokémon to sit out for a move and in return, hit stronger the next time they attack.  Alpha Pokémon will be tough to battle but easily spotted thanks to their large size and glowing red eyes. Catching them will be tough, but it will be worth it.  Customization You can customize your character with a variety of clothing items at the Clothier in Jubilife Village. As you progress through the journey of Arceus, you’ll unlock more and more items including hairstyles, shirts, pants, and more.  Noble Pokémon Noble Pokémon are special frenzied creatures that rampage across the Hisui region. They’re easy to spot, too, as they glow gold. These are essentially boss battles. Depleting their health won’t end the fight. Instead, you’ll need to throw special balms at them made of their favorite food. In between throwing balms, you’ll need to dodge its attacks to survive. At some point during the fight, the Pokémon will reveal an opening and then you can attack. Now, you have to actually defeat it in battle before you can finally catch it. The narrator promises that these will be some of the toughest battles in the entire game.  And that’s where the video ends. Pokémon Legends: Arceus will hit the Switch on January 28. While waiting for its release, catch up on some of the recently-released trailers, starting with this Pokémon Legends: Arceus trailer that introduces the Diamond and Pearl clans to the game. Watch this trailer for a better look at the environments, NPCs, and Pokémon we’ll be catching after that, and then watch this one for a better look at the crafting in the game.  Are you excited for Pokémon Legends: Arceus?

    Super Junior & Leslie Grace Discuss How K-Pop and Latin Music Flourish Together at KCON 2018 NY

    CJ EntertainmentCJ Entertainment

    If someone wished to place bets to the continuing future of music, they could have had a need to search no further compared to the KCON 2018 NY festival at the Prudential Center. The two-day convention-concert extravaganza brought 53,000 fans to the Newark, NJ arena who have been treated to from workshops, panels, artist meet-and-greets in addition to a live show of the first-ever hit K-pop/Latin-pop collaboration in Super Junior and Leslie Grace’s “Lo Siento.” The trilingual Korean-Spanish-English track led Super Junior to end up being the first K-pop act to enter Billboard‘s Latin charts and brought both seemingly opposite artists on tour throughout Mexico, Chile, Peru and argentina, up to now.

    Backstage at KCON, where in fact the artists were gearing around supply the first-ever stateside live show of the track, there is only appreciation and playfulness (continue reading) between everyone. Leslie cracked jokes with SuJu’s Siwon, but smiled and interacted with each one of the band’s six members in attendance. The artists exposed to Fuse in what they’ve learned in one another and indicate just one more collab could be in the works soon to help expand spread what they see as a mutually beneficial, musical relationship.

    As Leslie shouted during her cameo in Super Junior’s set later that night “That is only the start!” in both Spanish and English, indicating that their future is looking exciting and incredibly multilingual. Continue reading for more and keep tuned in for more from Fuse’s time on the floor at KCON.

    FUSE: You created the initial successful K-pop and Latin music collaboration. Just how do these worlds together come?
    Leeteuk: In Korea, there weren’t any K-pop groups that tried a Latin feature such as this by yet, but Super Junior had an objective to test an attribute with a Latin sound. Since it was the 1st experiment, our synchronization with Leslie was so excellent and the ultimate final result was very successful, we will continue steadily to experiment to be able to try new things.

    Leslie, how did you be influenced by this collaboration as well as your musical perspective?
    Leslie Grace: It has been this awesome possibility to be, just from my vantage point and my side of music on the Latin end to be among the first to accomplish this type of huge collaboration with K-pop sufficient reason for this type of different culture aswell and contains opened the eyes lots of my colleagues on my side to most probably to collaboration and cross-cultural collaborations later on. Personally i think awesome. To open my fanbase in the manner that I don’t believe could have ever happened without collaborating with an organization as awesome as SuJu

    Siwon: You called us SuJu?! That [nickname] is well known by you?
    Leslie: Yeah, I really do! I’m a fan, I understand my stuff! [Laughs] We’re on first-name basis.
    Siwon: We have to call you LG then. [Laughs]
    Leslie: Yes, you understand there’s a comfort and ease between us. We together continued tour. Call me anything you want, guys.

    I desire to enquire about the tour as the Super Show 7 hit several Latin American countries and Leslie appeared in the shows. What were those shows like?
    Siwon: It had been really amazing and something of my best memories and experiences, in dealing with her especially. She actually is very passionate and incredibly professional. And she’s an excellent heart.
    Leslie: Many thanks, same with you guys. You guys are a lot more professional.
    Donghae: In all honesty, we have no idea everything about Leslie with regards to her performances because we only have one song with her in “Lo Siento,” but through the tour, we saw her perform on her behalf own and we think she’s a wide variety of sides to her when performing. For instance, when she sang a bright song, she was so positive, expressive and bubbly. So when she sang a sad song then, she would belong to tears suddenly. We realized that it had been these different facets of her performances that, we think, make her so popular.
    Leslie: I didn’t even understand these were watching so attentively! Personally i think so flattered. I believe that was probably the most exciting part for me personally too. I’m so glad he said it because, for me personally, I was looking towards going on tour really, seeing them perform and me learning more about K-pop music, K-pop fandom and their repertoire when you are at the show there. While we only surely got to do one song as well as “Lo Siento”-which changes later on…

    Is a confirmation of another collaboration?!
    Leslie: I am hoping it is! In the future sometime. But since we only did one song on the tour together, I got eventually to see a large amount of their show if you ask me going on stage and doing my set prior. I’d say that has been the coolest part. They’re very expressive aswell, the dancing is super entertaining, the singing is incredible, that has been one thing. However the other thing was that it had been a phenomenon if you ask me how folks of my language are singing along with their language and you also really reach observe how music does not have any barriers. And in addition, to see them singing along to my songs as well-there wasn’t any gap between your E.L.F. fandom and the social individuals who could appreciate my music aswell and knew it word after word.

    That’s beautiful. With successful collaborations and tours such as this, year for K-pop it further feels as though 2018 is really a special. Year can you feel it is a special?
    Leeteuk: 4 or 5 years ago, we’d a solo show in France and we did a show in LA also. We received a whole large amount of questions about how exactly long K-pop would really last, but it is grown since that time. So, 2018, we don’t believe it’s nearly Super Junior growing, but K-pop generally receiving a large amount of love all over the world still, and it’s really just likely to keep growing altogether and receive a lot more love.
    Siwon: That is clearly a great answer.
    Eunhyuk: Up to now, so excellent. [Laughs]

    So what’s Super Junior’s next goal to help keep K-pop growing?
    Siwon: Maybe we’ll bring our tour to america.
