New Pokémon Legends: Arceus Trailer Introduces The Diamond & Pearl Clans

The official Pokémon Youtube channel has shared another new trailer for the upcoming Pokémon Legends: Arceus, highlighting the Diamond and Pearl clans. These groups are the Hisui region’s two primary clans and have their fair share of distinct characters. It’s clear these individuals will have clashing beliefs leading to inevitable conflict. Additionally, a few merchants of the Ginkgo Guild are introduced with several interactions.

Between these reveals and the fresh new components of the battle system, some bold steps are being transparently taken here. While I wasn’t sold on this title during its initial reveal, this newly revealed footage is undoubtedly amping up the hype.

The sheer premise of a Pokémon title being set this far in the past is enticing enough, and I hope that the game’s execution embraces its contextual strengths well. Based on the trailer, that certainly seems to be the case, but we will merely have to wait and see how every game design aspect coalesces early next year.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is releasing for Nintendo Switch on January 28, 2022.
