The official Pokémon Youtube channel has shared a new trailer for the upcoming Game Freak-developed Pokémon Legends: Arceus, introducing the Hisuian regional variant of Voltorb. This Pokémon has been highly anticipated to see in this title’s older context, given its prior designs being reliant on modernity. Obviously, given Voltorb’s design, this Hisuian form is not radically different, but its more rustic, wooden appearance does grant it a distinct identity.

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.
