Design like Monster Hunter.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus will not be an open world game.
Although the trailers showed large areas and suggested a game similar to Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the game’s design is similar to what Capcom presented in the Monster Hunter series, with multiple areas separated by a hub and loading screen. Huh.
After speculation surfaced that it might not be an open world game, something that has never been officially confirmed, The Pokémon Company Confirmed by Kotaku That the structure will not be of one open world, but of many different large-scale areas.
In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, the Jubilife village will serve as the base for the investigation mission. After receiving a mission or request and preparing for the next excursion, players will leave the village to study one of the many open areas of the Hisui area. ,” explained the company.
“After finishing their task, players will have to come back once more to prepare for the next task. We look forward to sharing more details about the Hisui area exploration soon.”
Although not directly referring to it, The Pokemon Company describes the structure of Monster Hunter, in which you keep everything in one central location from which you set off for missions or free exploration.
