Just wow!! This more than made up for all my disapointment on the main Nintendo direct :D

I could feel the Pokemon magic coming back in these trailers, soooo much better than the empitness of Sword and Shiled

Pokemon could be back on track, Legends Arceus could be huge if the execution is done right

Bruh...they managed to make Let's Go look like a Next Gen game compared to DP Remakes. I really hope they're not charging $60 for these... But yeah, Legends looks decent. Game Freak has to have time to learn and grow because they were behind for some time. We're finally seeing the fruits of their labor. It still looks rough around the edges but perhaps it's an earlier build. Overall, I'd say a 7.

Seriously, am I the only one who thinks Pokémon Legends: Arceus looks worse than one of those thousands of abandoned Dreams projects on PS4?

It looks like they are trying BotW with the engine and assets of SwSh, with predictable results. Unless GF steps up its game, or we'll see either massive empty areas all throughout the game or very bad performance all around.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Hory Sheit!!! Open world Pokemon! Finally! I haven't played a Pokemon since X/Y so I am getting legends! :D

Really don't like the art style of the remakes. Looks like a lazier version of Link's Awakening's art style.
The concept of Legends is something to look forward to, but it also looks like they have nothing but an open world and some Pokémon right now, looked very rough. Too early to show in my opinion. Combat looks to be the exact same as previous titles as well which is a shame. A step in the right direction at least.

I really wish they would outsource a Pokémon game to Square or Monolith or even Platinum games, with a much larger focus on combat, story and exploration and not on the "catch em all" theme. A mix of Torna: The Golden Country and Astral Chain gameplay. Basically a reboot of Pokémon.

Legends seems kind of like what I wanted them to do with the series going into 3D, for a long time.
It looks a bit rough, but it's early in development, and the concept is very interesting.

Breath of the Arceus looks interesting, but if GF struggled with SWSh's performance already, this is going to be nightmarish for them.

Watching the video, performance was a very obvious problem. Can only hope with a year until release it get a decent amount of polish.

I feel the same but knowing Nintendo they wouldn't invest more when there are 20m buying them even with mediocre graphics

they are lazy, even Pokemon Colosseum has amazing in-battle animations compared to Sword/Shield

until Pokemon starts to die, that's all we'll get

About the DP remakes, I wonder if they decided to go with this artstyle because they were planning something on mobile. Even Let's Go games had a much more developed artstyle than this.

I don’t think that’s accurate, it basically a scaled up version of the art style from the original DP. I get why the plasticy look is a bit of a turn off but Links Awakening had the same thing and no one seemed to fussed with that.

Or they replace the person in charge of making these decisions. 



Pocky Lover Boy!
