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?

    CJ EntertainmentCJ Entertainment

    Officially, NCT 127 had not been the headliner of KCON 2018 NY, however the intricate crowd and setlist screams could have made one think otherwise. Kicking off having an intense dance introduction, pin-point performances of singles like “Touch” and “Cherry Bomb,” and also a particular rendition of these 2017 b-side track “Whiplash,” the boy band delivered among the longest sets of the fest and left an audibly obvious effect on the Prudential Center arena. The scene-stealing showcase marked the most recent part of NCT 127’s steady trajectory to more American visibility that recently included stops at Beats 1 radio, BUILD Series, and also a live Apple Store performance.

    Talking to Fuse the morning prior to the set, year the nine members reflected on the growth during the past, where they see their band moving in the near future and the love they have for another members within their NCT brand.

    FUSE: NCT 127 is back America! We first talked for you at KCON NY last year, your first U.S. show, per year later just how are you currently feeling?
    It’s similar. What we’re feeling is quite similar, however now we’re headed towards new goals in what you want to do. We’re always considering what type of songs we have to sing, what sort of performance we have to placed on and what’s good showing our fans. So overall, it is rather similar, but it certainly is boils down to what’s close to show to the fans.
    Mark: Yet another thing to increase that, like what Taeyong said, we do have the same manner with how thrilled we have been to stand before our fans sufficient reason for as much which has happened in the entire year, we’ve new what to show to the fans performance-wise and music-wise. You want to show just how much we’ve developed aswell therefore we’re just glad to meet up our fans who’ve looking forward to us. We also prepared a fresh intro for “Touch” and it’s really a lot more powerful than what people expect, it will likely be the very first thing that everyone sees. We likewise have three members perform among our new songs “Whiplash” so people can anticipate something new.

    It does indeed feel just like you guys are leading this kind or sort of “new generation of K-pop,” as the saying goes. Can you guys feel this yourselves?
    Taeyong: Instead of having the ability to believe that we have been leading this new generation, we believe that K-pop as a genre reaches the forefront of attention round the global world. We need to try very difficult as one among the K-pop artists in this genre and we feel just like we have to actually just do our best in this genre. But I believe we will maintain every spot in the complete wide world.

    Recently, you participated in the Empathy album by NCT that included a song and video performed by NCT 2018 with all 18 members in the band. Exactly what is a video shoot like this like?
    Haechan: All of the members were involved and because you can find so many members we’d to concentrate a whole lot harder and there have been much more what to focus on. But because we tried hard, the outcome was better actually. Directly into atmosphere of the music video regards, because individuals were it had been actually excellent there. Individuals were feeling great and, generally, it was good just.

    We saw you in LA recently performing and doing interviews. Now you’re back New York. This year may be the US more of important for NCT 127?
    Johnny: [Clarifying] Personally i think like we have been always on the point of turn out to wherever, america even, anywhere else even, because NCT 127 as a team is really a group that starts in Seoul and you want to spread out in to the world merely to tell everyone what K-pop is. You want to show everyone what NCT 127 is, so we’re always prepared to arrived at America-come to anywhere, practically!

    You also recently made your debut in fans and Japan are longing for news in regards to a Korean comeback. What are at this point you focusing on right?
    We have been always preparing new songs, new performances, and I am hoping we’ve more opportunities to meet up more fans like on the global world. I think we have been ready always.
    Mark: We actually have no idea the precise date or anything [in regards to new Korean music], but Personally i think like we have been on the point of similar to make something always, you know, to access our fans as fast as possible back. [We’re involved with] every angle of the preparation, we’re just attempting to connect to the music. We have been focusing on it.

    “I ask fans to help keep their expectations high for the group.”

    – NCT’s Taeyong

    KCON includes a great lineup this season including a few of your label mates like Super Junior and Red Velvet. But if you bring on yet another artist to the lineup, who you bring?
    Taeyong: There are a great number of different artists in SM Entertainment, and there are always a complete large amount of our seniors in SM, but because there are always a complete large amount of our members in NCT, I think we’d enjoy it if we’re able to perform at KCON with another members of NCT.

    And are you experiencing a note to the fans which are reading all over the world and that could not reach see you normally as the areas of the planet?
    So, off first, I’d like to always give you thanks for, I assume like, rooting for all of us and supporting us always. We are focusing on something showing you guys always, therefore i hope you guys will be ready to come out and become like always, “Whoa, NCT back is finally!”
    Taeyong: We’re really happy that people can, again once, meet all our fans in NY and you want to continue steadily to make great memories with this fans. NCT will probably continue steadily to grow as a combined group, and I ask fans to help keep their expectations high for the combined group.
