During the latest Nintendo Direct, we were graced with a brand new trailer for the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet & Pokémon Violet Treasure of Area Zero DLC.
Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet are available for Nintendo Switch.
The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero will launch across two parts throughout this year. The first part is The Teal Mask launching in the Fall of 2023, and the second part is The Indigo Disk, which will launch in the Winter of 2023.
The Teal Mask will let players visit the land of Kitakami as part of a school trip beyond the Paldea region. In addition, a regularly held festival in the land will be conducted as players try to figure out the truth behind multiple folktales. On the other hand, The Indigo Disk will have players study as an exchange student in Blueberry Academy. Cumulatively, over 230 Pokémon will return via both DLCs.
The Teal Mask will feature new Pokémon Okidogi, Munkidori, Fezandipiti, and the new legendary Ogerpon.
